XJ was alright already and next, YX was down ! :(
On 13 April, when we reached home after work, MIL informed that YX was having slight fever. He just woke up from his nap but looked active. I quickly check if he was having running nose / cough (which is common when a kid has a fever). He looked fine to me. He has got no other complaint except for headache.
14 April - He was still having slight fever and we had decided not to bring him to school. I brought him to the office instead. He was still as active as normal and was very mischievous too. But why is he having fever then? His appetite was good and he doesn't look sick at all !
But in the afternoon, YX started to complaint of headache and wanted to sleep. I decided to bring him to visit the doctor at the Govt clinic. To my surprised, YX's fever rose up to 39 Degree C. Back to the office, I quickly sponged him while he rested. After work, we brought him to visit our normal pead. for further check up. The pead. checked his throat, ears, etc and did not detect any infection. He was puzzled too why YX was having a high fever with no other symptom. By the way, his temperature was at 38.8 Degree C at that time. The pead. even suspected YX might have caught the flu bug which has not showed out yet. Anyway, he advised to bring YX back again if his fever does not subside. In the middle of the night, YX shivered and I felt his body was very hot. I quickly inserted a suppository and continue to sponged him.
All these while, I did check with him if he was having sore throat, stomach discomfort, ear pain, mouth ulcer, etc but he has got no complaint. I even checked his throat and mouth to see if any ulcers, but none.
16 April, YX started to complaint of sore throat. This time, I could see some white spots on the side of his throat. I quickly bring him to the doctor again (govt clinic as our normal pead was closed that day) and the doctor commented YX caught a lot of germs !
A blood test was done to determine if it is a viral infection or not. YX had been very cooperative during the blood test and the results - It was NOT a viral infections.
Doc. prescribed antibiotic x 5 days for him. After 3 days of antibiotic, YX had fully recovered and the white spots in his throat had gone ! He is now back to his normal mischievous self.
I still continue to give both kids their supplements and hope they will be able to built a stronger immune system in their tiny bodies, soon. Hope we will visit the doctor less....
The pead even mentioned that once a kid goes to school, they will get sick very often. If too worried, we will have to stop YX from going to school for a few months for him to built up his body's immune system. Impossible isn't ?
