Sick, sick, sick mummy...

Mummy is not the only one in the family who has flu, it started from Ah Kong during the second day of Chinese New Year. Then, it started to spread...

Mummy's condition worsen since yesterday. Non-stop coughing cause sleepless night and thus fever, sore throat all comes at once. Went to see the family doctor 2 days ago but no antibiotic was given due to mummy still breastfeed baby Zheng. Last night discovered blood in the phlegm and mummy can't bear with the counghing anymore. It's getting worse and worse. Not so sure who to turn to at this moment and therefore sms Chanel and Loh from MMPS to get help. Thanks to Chanel mentioned about visiting my gynea.

Mummy was the last patient when arrived at Adventist Hospital at 12.15pm. Today only open half day because it's a Sunday. Even Dr.Zovi is not a lactation specialist but is particularly very supportive in breastfeeding. Oh... she is the doctor who was in charge for baby Zheng delivery, she's so happy to see baby Zheng again. She told mummy all the gynea and nurses there were trained to help breastfeeding mothers. Dr.Zovi recommended mummy to take the mint leaves to sooth the sore throat and it's much better compare taking antibiotic in the futire. The mint leaves is different from the type we use for cooking, the leave is 6-7 times bigger. Mummy was touched when Dr.Zovi went back to her home to get her homegrown mint leaves for mummy! She asked mummy to plant this in a pot for future use. Will take a picture of the mint leave soon.

Mummy prays to get well soon. Hopefully, baby En and baby Zheng will be fine in the family as MIL and daddy also starts coughing now... Seriously, this is not an enjoyable Chinese New Year...
