A big HELLO, HFM and Mother's Day

So..hi there! As I am writing this, I am riddling with guilt because I've got a very dear friend...who's in town...and I had promised to see her, take her out and generally to catch up. As you can most probably guess that I haven't done any of those.

The past 2 weeks or so have been a little crazy around here. Mini turned 3! Before that, we had a major celebration for my sister on the occasion of her marriage. That in itself was pretty monumental. And then, just when I thought I could finally sit back, enjoy Mother's Day (Ash kept telling me the craft she was doing in school and how it was meant for me and how she hasn't finished it..), Ash kena-ed HFM!

It started last Thursday with fever. We gave Ash some fever meds and it cleared. Then it came back again. And by Saturday morning she was jumping up and down. I even took her to the paed on Friday just to be sure it wasn't dengue or HFM or whatever...and nothing came out of it. SHe wasn't even fever-ing when we visited the doctor. So we concluded at that moment that it was a viral infection. We went home after that.

Hubby and I even managed to catch Avengers on Saturday thinking nothing of Ash's fever. The movie, by the way, was freaking AWESOME! The movie of THE year dare I say it. And, I am so glad we caught it because the very next day, spots started to appear on Ash. EEkk!! She had a couple of them under her feet, between her toes and fingers. She also complained of a discomfort when she swallowed. Shiates, right?!

I quickly took her to the paed and sure enough, the doc confirmed our fears. I was actually more concerned for Mini to be honest. Somehow I knew with Ash being much older, she'll be able to withstand the discomfort and pain (if any). Sure enough, she did experience minor discomfort when eating and the worst appeared to be over because as of Monday, no additional spots appeared and despite the presence of ulcers in her throat, she didn't feel much pain. Which was a huge relief if you ask me. I then, concentrated on Mini, praying real hard she doesn't get it bad..if she gets it at all because the doc gave me that prepare-for-Emily-look. Plus she said "prepare for Emily".

So far, apart from feeling warmish on Mini's part, she's been ok after all. No visible outbreaks. Ash has also coped well. They've been getting on each other's nerves lately. WHat else do you expect when you have the kids at home...all day..everyday. O_O

Anyway, we are still stuck at home and depending on clearance from the doctor, I hope to be a free bird next week. That includes HUBBY as well cos he also kena-ed! What timing isn't it? 

Pray for us!!
