Throat Infection

sickLittle Edison was down with fever yesterday morning. On our way to Grandma’s house, he vomited in the car. He was irritable, cranky and sick! I immediately applied for urgent leave to bring him to the doctor.

Dr. Oh came to our rescue again. She did a thorough check on Edison. Apart from fever, he had no other symptoms – no cough, no runny nose, no rashes, nothing. She told us that our little boy was having a throat infection (or Strep Throat).

Edison’s throat was inflamed, red and has some white dots. Strep throat is common among young children and it is caused by bacteria. Dr. Oh prescribed Augmentin (antibiotics) and she assured us that the symptoms will go away within 3 days.

Today is the second day. Little Edison still has a mild fever. His appetite and activeness have improved more than 50%. I wish my little boy a speedy recovery.

I wish Edison a smooth and encouraging recovery.

I have had the opportunity to see Edison after work, today. From afar, he was seen giggling and playing with grandma as our senior pointed to the sky to the junior, showing Edison the neat arrangements of our moon and stars.

Little Boy was happy to see Godpa and immediately greeted me with a childlike laughter.

Naturopath practitioners religiously believe that laughter is the best medicine. I could see it working.

Well done, boy !
