Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease

I work in school here in Pasig... The reason why I applied to work in school is to have extra vacations, like long Christmas Vacations, Summer Vacations and Semestral Breaks.  During those weeks that children in our school are on their vacation,  we are also given additional days to relax and be with our families. 

Last week was the Semestral Break.  Sadly, instead of relaxing,  my baby Charles was sick.. First I thought he was teething coz he has fever and doesn't like to drink his milk.  the next day, still has fever,  I brought him to his doctor, and found out that he has Hand Foot and Mouth Disease, and rashes were coming out from his whole body, and blisters from his hands, and feet.  Dra. Sy chua also chicked Charles' throat and found that his throat was sooo red, and has blisters or like singaw.

It was really very sad to see Charles crying, irritated with rashes, and hungry but he can't drink milk or eat anything, then he also has fever!  Minsan nga, nagagalit na ako, dahil iyak ng iyak, but I'm also crying kasi parang wala akong magawa to help him.

After 3 - 5 days, he's okay na.  I gave him Immunosin, and an antibiotic, and Tempra for fever. Thank God, magaling yung Pedia nya.  I pray na sana he'll continue to be well.  No more sickness for the family....
