No mood to blog after all the sick dilemmas!

Aiyoh one after another episode of ailments. Very exhausting & stressful!
no mood to cook, no mood to blog!

My dad is back home now after the pacemaker insertion. Was advised not to elevate his shoulder & cannot drive for 2 months. The anaemia status still nt confirmed.

All my kids are OK now except my little Jasmine who vomitted 9+3 times since yesterday. I'm trying hard to ensure she doesnt dehydrate. Unfortunately what goes in comes out either thru her mouth or through her bottom.

Doctor said she has lots of wind in the stomache & probably also a viral attack.

Any good remedy to share?

if she can take the spiciness, I do recommend warm ginger condense milk and/or charcoal water....

When my kids vomit I always give them ginger ale to drink. I hope she feels better soon.

Try ginger tea. Boil water, add ginger and keep it boiling for about ten minutes. Leave it to cool down. Add some honey (raw / unpasteurized, if possible) before drinking. That should take care of the wind or stomach flu.

Poor Jas:Over here, it's a regimen of 10mls of gastroly every 10mins for 2hrs, then increase. If she vomits badly again, rest tummy for another 2 hrs, then start regimen again.Look on the bright side that it soon will pass. Just monitor her overall status:if she's lethargic cos it's a sign of dehydration. Hope the buy cycle ends there. It's Xmas season... hope all get well to celebrate. Hope to resume reading yr blog after my op.

hello irene! glad to hear that all is well except for the little one. you are right though in what you are doing... just watch out that the little one don't dehydrate. in my case, i always have oral rehydration salts available and ready in the house for use in the same situation you are in now. a good way to replenish or rehydrate is to give her little amounts of rice porridge from time to time. no solids yet as these are hard to digest. put her on a soft diet and you may ask your doctor as to the kind of foods that will best suit her in her condition now. here, we have here a premixed drink which you can buy over the counter. it is called PEDIA LITE. i don't know if its available in your country. it is better than the rehydration salts cause it tastes better and comes in a variety of flavors, it is a little bit more expensive though. try also to give her distilled drinking water as this is safer in cases like this than ordinary purified drinking water. be assured that i will include you and your kids in my prayers today. God bless you! ciao!
