Our kids have been sick, one after the other. Before Hari Raya Haji- Johan. Then followed by Dahlia, Sara and Nadine and last night, Sophia. Over the weekend,me, although on a very mild level.
Their illness goes like this: Sakit perut- stomach cramps, then nausea, then throwing up, then more stomach cramps, loss of appetite unless mommy yells and then they will eat but after that throw up. No fever . Sleep for a long time. We give supportive treatment - paracetamol, water, oral rehydration salts, ban on other kids from annoying them, promise of toys if they get better- the usual.
(Yesterday I lectured Sophia for being greedy at the McD airport - she wanted strawberry sundae, corn on the cob, Green tea (she swore she'd like it- and then did not finish it) , large fries, and no burger..ie junk lah to me. She fell sick yesterday evening and watching her sleep, cheeks flushed, I felt so sorry that I yelled at her and hope she'd get better so I can give her as many strawberry sundae she wants.)
Hubby won't take them to see doctor as it is just "a bug". It's not easy for a mom to sit back and not give her kids spoonfuls of meds. Wonder if other doctors' wives feel the same.
I heard my office mate pun ill just like this. And a lot more kids and adults around who have fallen ill this way.
Which begs the question- WHY?
Is it the water? Can't be the food, we all live in different houses, eat at different places at different times. It MUST be something common to us.
Hope the Jabatan kesihatan takes note.
