Day 27: Assurance

Our original plan of consulting the pedia for only one child turned out to be for all three of our children.  While keeping watch in the wee hours of the morning, the youngest one surprised us by retching so suddenly.  But since it seemed isolated, it was thought that maybe "hindi lang natunawan during dinner".  

However, several hours later, while prepping the eldest for school, he too had retching bouts while taking his bath. Hmmm....this is not good.  But thinking that maybe it was just an anxiety symptom before going to school, we let him leave for today's school activities.  A couple of hours later, the school calls to say that he's been vomiting in school and doesn't feel well.

Oh no! And so, we took all three to the pedia to seek professional advise.  After eliminating all the symptoms associated with head injuries, child #2 was cleared.  A big thanks to the big guy above for that!  And since all of them had been exhibiting similar symptoms, the pedia thought that they may have eaten something that didn't agree with their body.  Armed with prescriptions and instructions, we were now more confident that there was nothing serious to worry about.  Of course, we still had to be vigilant and make sure that dehydration won't be a problem, thus the help of ORS (oral rehydration salts) and an antiemetic medicine.
