Isaac keeps complaining of stomach ache.
Still having fever.
But able to drink well.
Still has cough and runny nose.
Poop more than 5 times already. It's not runny, it's softer than usual.
Quite worried about his stomach ache though.
Back here again!
Decided to bring him because he kept complaining every 5 mins of stomach ache.
Also just vomitted although it looks like phlegm.
Okay, someone's got pneumonia
I think the stomach ache is from the ache of coughing maybe?
Waiting for chest X-Ray now.
Fuck la. Of all the things, allergic to the antibiotic.
Going back to the hospital again!!
You know, I just want to curse ok. Fuck fuck fuckety fuck.
Luckily gave test dose of antibiotics before the dad left for work.
Sat next to him to observe and true enough spots started coming out from side of mouth.
Cheeks got redder and I tot the chest too.
Waiting for the change in meds.
Walked back into the A&E n told the nurse what happen. Ain't gonna pay another 130 bucks ok.
Hopefully this new antibiotics (klacid) doesn't give an allergy. Cross fingers!
👼🏻: this is my favourite place ever! (When we went to the ED the 2nd time.
👩🏻👨🏻: *don't know to laugh or cry*. Anyway it's time for us to go home. We are done at the hospital.
👼🏻: oh why are we not going to the hotel room and stay?
We are back home. After giving a him a bath, I thought it's ok to reward him.
I told him we can paint after taking his flu meds. Luckily he complied n drank it quickly.
Ok la, paint long long la….
Phew. So Isaac had the other antibiotic, and thank god he didn't develop a reaction to it.
Looks like he is allergic to penicillin class of meds. #drugallergy
We need to let his allergist know.
So the reason we don't know whether Isaac has a drug allergy or not is because we've never given him antibiotics before.
He has taken flu meds and paracetamol, but that's about it. I've never even given him ibuprofen too!
I do have a suspicions that he *might* be allergic to a few kinds of drugs, but I never expected him to hit the jackpot of penicillin allergy.
Previously he has not had antibiotics because I was breast feeding him and he recovers pretty fast from any of his illnesses.
Moral of the story
Breast feed for as long as the child's immune system is still maturing.
Up to 7 years also 7 years la. It's unfortunate my milk dried up when I was 18 weeks pregnant. I did not on purpose stop him from breast feeding. In fact it's mostly nightly he latches, and yet I did not product any milk.
Different body produces milk differently I suppose.
And I notice after stopping BF, he doesn't bounce back as fast from illnesses.
Just is my observation and in no way saying other ppl can't BF
Is not good.
I did it also out of nessecity as he is allergic to all kinds of dairy and during the first year of his life, allergic to soy too.
I do intend to tandem nurse once didi is out too!
I just hope my boobs can tolerate 2 boys latching at once 😝😝😝😝
So what are we going to do about Isaac?
I guess we just got to love him more.
And make sure he finishes his 10 days of the antibiotics for his pneumonia.
I'm glad that he's not burning with fever anymore and his cough is much less tonight as he sleeps!
He also doesn't complain of abdominal pain anymore.
Although his new complaint is "my mouth is so salty". I think it's due from the klacid which usually gives off a metallic after-taste.
Tomorrow another clinic review, this time is for his skin!
