This Rabbit Year....

Thank you everyone on your well wishes and greetings. This Rabbit year is not a good beginning for us. A week before CNY, YX was having high fever off and on. We brought him to the peadiatric at a private hospital on the 31st January (Monday - 7th days of fever) and was told that YX was tested POSITIVE for Influenza B. The doctor even suggested to feed XJ the medications (Tamiflu) prescribed for YX as a prevention as Influenza B is very contangious. No, we did not give the medications to XJ.

Instead, we requested for an admission but the private hospital was FULL ! As an alternative, we brought YX to the General Hospital and showed them the report from the peadiatric. However, the doctors in the GH does not treat this as a serious case. They explained that Influenza A is more dangerous as it can caused death but not Influenza B. Nevertheless, they still admitted YX for further observations. Miraculously, once YX was admitted in the hospital, his fever went off even without medications for the whole day. The nurse took his tempreature frequently and no sign of fever. It was hard to believe. Doctor then declare that YX can be discharged the next day since the fever had gone!

During the stay at the hospital, doctor even tested him for H1N1 and was glad the results came back NEGATIVE. The next day 1st Feb (Tues), we went back home and was looking forward for the CNY celebrations. However, I caught YX's virus! I had a mild fever and was having bad cough and flu. I quickly went for a doctor to get some medications. Thanks god hubby, XJ and other family members were free from this virus.

2nd Feb (CNY's eves), where everyone went for the reunion dinner, I had plain porridge at home.

3rd Feb (1st day of CNY), I was feeling much better but still have a very bad cough with lots of phlegms. I did not get to enjoy the CNY goodies. I had porridge again for lunch and dinner.

4th Feb (2nd day of CNY), We went back to Johor. It was a last minute decisions as I've earlier told mum that I won't be going back during this CNY as I was not feeling well. In addition, Segamat was badly flooded. But after discussions with hubby, we decided to go back as to join in the celebrations. Only 1 part of the kampung area was still flooded and luckily we managed to pass through. The flood in the Segamat town had already subsided. My parent's house were not affected as it was located at a higher locations.

6th Feb (4th day of CNY), We travel back to Seremban after lunch (around 4 pm). Normally, it took us only 2 1/2 hours journey, but that day, there were a terrible jam and we only reached home at around 9.30pm.

7th Feb (5th day of CNY), I lost my voice after i woke up in the morning. I could only whispered to my kids and hubby. It was terrible!

9th Feb (7th day of CNY), I still don't have voice after taking some Chinese medications for 2 days. I've decided to go to the doctor and was prescribed antibiotic.

Up till today, my voice have not fully recover yet. It was hoarse but at least I could speak ! Wonder this will drag for how long ;(

Hope your CNY celebrations were a good and memorable one.

  8. Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net) may be another solution to hoarse and sore throat. i know a lot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore or hoarse throat. Hope you are getting well soon!!!
