good news on Em

Em's stool sample results came back negative for any bacteria contamination so which means she's not allergic to any food or that swallowed a bird. The doc mentioned that it's likely to be a viral infection of some sort and that this will pass in a week or so.

I'm certainly glad. At least I don't have to look for a specific hard-to-find formula or change her diet. It will be a totally different story if I was say, looking for the best treatment for hemorrhoids but I'm not.

However, I will let her stay on milk and instant cereal for now. No fresh foods or whatever until she is better. I don't want to risk her stomach from getting any worst. Will this help at all? I honestly don't know. I'll have to give it a try for now, at least till the end of the week. After that, I will gradually re-introduce her to her usual solids. No fish. I think I will take her off fish for now. Even though she's been ok with fish but at times, it's after she has had her fish, she's unwell. So, no fish at this time.

I am relieved and I'm sure her bum is too. Lets hope there won't be another repeat..**crossing fingers**

glad to hear that she's alright. yes, do go for that deserving holiday now although i can so relate that holidays with kids are no holidays at all. it's just a mere duty/obligation from the parents to ensure they will still be deemed good parents by the kids (if it actually works but i know i got many pics to proof to my girls that i did that part well!).

btw, em is nearly 1 year already?!!!
