Food Poisoning

My poor boy had food poisoning last week. It took 6 days for him to recover. Had diarrhea and vomiting  at the same time, and was in and out of sleep for 4 days. Saw a normal GP (Such a waste of money!), then Hospital ER (was told to throw away all the medication given by GP) then the following day to our trusted pediatrician (Reese was given probiotics). Poor boy was constantly complaining being weak and hardly took any food or water. Day 4 onwards he was better but was still having diarrhea and vomiting. Managed to take spoonful of food and water every hour or so. Finally, today he is alright and his stool has harden. He has lost significant amount of weight. What an experience!

At Tropicana Medical Centre at 3am

Day 3, weak but managed to watch some cartoon

Day 7, recovered and enjoying a book and sausage bun

Engrossed in the book

Hi martha,

I hope your girls will be well soon! :) Still praying for you and the girls!

BabyBooned,
He ate a ham and cheese sandwich. I guess the ham was the cause. We went to TMC for emergency service only. Our regular pedi is Dr. Junina at Mutiara Damansara. I believe your kids go to her too? :)
