I know it is hump day already and it is almost weekend and I have not updated this blog. Well, we had a long weekend due to the Chinese New Year celebration, which translates to more family time, thus no lappy time for me.
Well we did not have all fun last weekend because my youngest has been throwing up after meals with soft/watery poop. Not only that, she does not pee much either! And she had high fever come Monday morning!
I texted our pediatrician before we had our long weekend about her pee and was told that it was ok. So we went with our weekend plans. Some failed and some succeeded. I will blog about that in another post. By Monday night she was already fever-free. But come Tuesday, she did not pee again for more than 8 hours! So we went to her pediatrician.
We were advised to go for the non-invasive laboratory exams first such as urinalysis and fecalysis. After an hour of waiting at the hospital, we have not collected samples. So we decided to go home. To give you a clearer picture, the hospital is about 30-45 minutes drive from our home. The angel fell asleep in the car. But as soon as I put her in her hammock, she woke up. Then after a few minutes, she peed. We had no choice but to bring the sample to the nearest laboratory clinic.
Then it took us another 6 hours before we were able to collect her stool sample. Yes, we roam near the laboratory clinic first in the hopes that she will poop soon. But she did not. And upon coming home again, she did her thing.
It is as if she is telling us that three days worth of family time is not enough.
I got the results today and everything is normal as per our pediatrician. I was advised to give Maxyn a soft diet, with small frequent feedings. I really hope her tummy gets well soon. She has lost some weight already!

is it the same with gestational flu? Elijah was confined for three days last year. water poop for how many days and fever na pabalik balik. one of the darkest days of my life. 🙁
I’m glad she’s feeling better. I’m sure she’ll get back to her old chubby self again. Hehe..
good to know that max is better now. =)
