Poor Zahin. She was down with Tummy Bugs since Thursday night. :(
She started vomitting at 1 o clock in the early of friday morning. Yup, all of us were in Lalaland when it happened. In fact, She threw up on me and Zafri. I wondered why because she was fine before that.
The next morning she kept vomitting and looked so sick. She claimed her tummy ached and rumbling so we decided to keep her at home. She was absent on friday. During breakfast she did not eat and drink much but she still vomitted again and again. We quickly called GP but unfortunately there was no more appointments available that day. Pffft!
Luckily there is a walk in centre nearby at Barking Hospital so hubby immediately drove us there after fetching Iris from nursery.
When we arrived at the centre, there were quite number of people already waiting. But the service was fast and in no time we were called in by a nurse. Then the nurse confirmed that she had Tummy Bugs or as well called as Stomach Bugs.
The nurse said it was contagious so she might got it from other people. At school maybe..since other than her, we all were fine. Unfortunately, there was no medicine given for Tummy Bugs. The natural treatment is the only way, so we just went home.
In the mean time, we just make sure that she eats and drinks though she did not feel like to. It is very important as to prevent her from dehydration.
After some reading, she needs to avoid dairy products and caffeinated drink. So no milk, no milo for her at this moment. The nurse also advised us to give her only toasts, not even a porridge. huhu.We had to force her to eat and drink.
It really was a battle because she refused everything! She was too afraid to eat due to many times vomit. Kesian ok. She just lying and sleeping on the couch and bed most of the time..it made me sad to see her in the condition. If she's healthy, she will not be like that.
PS. Apparently, it was in today's online local paper where Tummy or Stomach Bugs outbreak all over England now. Scary!! Read here.
