Good bye milk bottle ??

Something positive just might just turned out from this HFMD episode after all.

Ryan has been stuck to all his four Chico milk bottles for his daily dose of milk (nen nen). We have been faithfully bringing his bottle out wherever we go with him. If we are out for long, his bag will be stuffed with at least 4 such bottles.


So far, our attempts to get him to stop using these bottles have not been very successful.

However, with his mouth full of blisters and probably painful to suck from the bottle and yet at the same time, he is getting hungry, he has resorted to drink from his normal drinking bottle with a straw.

Hopefully, after this episode is over, we could say farewell and good riddance to those bottles who have served us well over the last couple of years ....

An update on his HFMD status, he is definitely getting better. Although there are still blisters in his mouth, the lesser pain he has definitely suggests that he is getting better. Anyway, he is `almost' his hyper active self, monkeying around the house and beginning to get into my nerves as I am trying frantically to separate him from contacting Chenya....

He has not really had any fever since this started. Probably because we gave him paracetamol when we detected his temperature touching 37.4 or 37.5. He has not shown new rashes on his hands and legs and the old seemed to be fading somewhat...

Hoping that this episode will end soon and crossing all my fingers and toes that the next does not start with Chenya. According to the paed, if Chenya is exposed and infected, she should start showing symptoms anytime from now till the end of the week. Wish me luck.....

Both my kids were down with HFMD at the same time during their 1-week holiday. Theirs were bad too - multiple ulcers in the mouth and throat. They were on an ice cream, cold water and vitagen diet for days! Heart ache to see them in pain each time they try to open their mouth.

Try to apply him with mouth oral drop, it can numb the pain so he able to take in the solid.
