In fact, he had 2 batches of fever and 2 different types of antibiotic.
20th October 2012 ~ He had a slight fever. It was his kindy's graduation and concert day. He still managed to perform his dance despite of the fever.
21st October 2012 ~ He woke up with a bad tummy ache and still having fever. Brought him to the doctor and found that his urine was infected. Doc prescribed antibiotic.
Just as we thought he was fine after that bottle of antibiotic, he fell sick again...........
26th October 2012 ~ Woke up with fever. No complaint of any aching.
27th October 2012 ~ Complaint mouth pain. Checked and saw 2 ulcers and his gum were swollen. Still having fever.
28th October 2012 ~ Checked his mouth again. SHOCKED ! Found 8 ulcers in his mouth and throat. He couldn't eat as he can't bite. Drink milk with cereal was a problem too as the ulcers were hurting. Still having fever.
29th October 2012 ~ Brought him to the doctor. Took blood test and urine test. All normal. So doctor suspect viral infections. Gave him panadol only as he is still having fever. Doctor asked me to buy throat spray from pharmacy outside.
|This helped to reduce the pain and worked as an anti-inflammatory too. RM25/bottle. He said tasted like mentos !|
30th October 2012 ~ Crying in pain as having problem eating and drinking. I feed him every 3 hourly and he had only milk + cereal as his meals throughout the day. Still having fever despite giving him panadol.
|Milk + Milo + Oats + Nestum. The only food he could swallow.|
1st November 2012 ~ Could see improvement. Ulcers begin to heal but he still couldn't bite hard food. I prepared baby food for him. I had to mash everything up and feed him. He doesn't like the taste and doesn't have good appetite. He only ate half while I have to finish the other half. Still having fever.
|Mashed Potato + tofu with a dash of salt.|
|Vegetarian mee suah with carrots, tofu and vege.|
However, every night (from the day he had the ulcers), he always woke up with blood stained at the side of his mouth. I checked his lip but did not see any crack. I suspected the blood stained came from his gum.
