5 dwn to 2 only ..Thks God!

All my kids are quite OK now..except Dennis the 2nd twin (Praise God) who is still having high fever. Started him on antibiotics. Also boiled some "Ling yong Sai kok" something I enquired frm the Chinese Medicated shop which I had to boil with slow fire to get 1 cup of water for him to drink. Like Daniel, he too complained of sorethroat & his lips are really red. The "chinese" drink supposed to be very cooling to bring dwn the temperature. Unfortunately, I need to force him to drink coz they taste is rather blunt.

As for dad, Dr. needs to rule out the cause of his anaemia(lack of blood) coz he looks very pale although no physical signs of bleeding (gastric or constipation or haemorrhoids). He had 3 pcks blood transfusion already since his admission on saturday evening. Just waiting to see the blood test result again to decide further. He will be undergoing a scope to see any internal bleeding in the stomache. If nothing significant, his bone marrow will be investigated.

As for his heart condition, Dr. said he has signs of Heart Failure..his heart is enlarged, there was fluid in his lungs which caused his breathlessness and the good valve also showin signs of leakage (which He said can be managed with medication without operation). Dad has to reduce his water intake. Jasmine missed her Ah Kong and called him to ask about his condition last night. She apologised to Ah kong for not able to visit him during dinner coz Dennis kor kor not feeling well and mommy has to cook dinner for all. Ah Kong told her he is feeling much better now.

This is what mommy cook for dinner:

Stir fried Garlic with Green Spinach


Old cucumber Soup with Red Dates & Black Chicken



Black Chicken & Potato in Oyster Sauce





Dennis just had bread with the old cucumber soup for dinner.

Dessert- Black seedless grapes.

Just got news that a good friend's mom just had a stroke and admitted to the same hospital as my dad. Pray and wish her well soon.

I boil Leng Yong for my boys too when they are too heaty, have hives attack or when they are with prolong fever....

but most of all, for fever, I kept giving them lots of water... to cool down the body... the more water they drink, the more they pass urine, the faster the heat get passed out...

Praise God for his healing hands...
