After a whole string of festivities & hosting ppl at our place…
Ethan had a bout of on & off fever for 2 days during the week which led to more manja-ing and then … the spots started appearing. I thought it was the usual rash post-fever but he looked really diseased by Saturday so we took him to kkh just to make sure.
The good thing about looking gross was that we were quarantined in a separate room and attended to quickly so we skipped the long queue in the waiting area.
I also now know why you should not leave yr child unattended. Ethan was very deft at ripping the bed coverings.
Pretending to pay heed to our “stop that, Ethan”
As it turns out, it was still roseola plus hives afterall, just a more serious-looking form. Good thing was that E wasnt scratchy or moody but the doc advised us to stay home as his immunity is low & he cld infect other kids. Had to sadly can 2 parties we were planning to go to and also change the rest of our plans so that either of us cld be home.
He had learnt how to put the balls into the rounded holes over the cny period as well as drink fr a straw cup finally so we did lots of that throughtout the day hehe.
On Sunday was also the hubbs’ first time cooking for E cause I was really maxed out fr a full day at work till 5pm. I thought it didnt look too bad but he said E just kept the porridge in his mouth and didnt swallow hahaha.
Such a polite kid 😛
