Wrong Timing to be Sick!

Today is the eve of our long-awaited vacation and guess what? I'm down with a bad cough. It started with a slight running nose on Saturday. Mummy thought it was only a minor cold that would go away in 1-2 days, as usual.

However, at Day 6 today, I still showed no sign of recovery. During the day, I appeared to be normal and well (no cough, no running nose) but at night, my cough was very persistent and sleep-disrupting. I must have contracted some very nasty germs! Mummy finally decided that medication was necessary so she rummaged the fridge for some old medicines. When she checked the date, oh dear... Dec 2008. Yes, it's been that long since I last consulted a doctor for cough and flu!


Sorry, it's expired...

Daddy had no choice but to take time off from work to come home all the way to bring me to the clinic. We are going to have an added chore now... to bring along these medicines and to remember to eat them :-(

The un-welcomed travelling companions

Sometimes I really wonder why. Why, when most kids fell sick as soon as they started school, I was ok? Why, when most people fell sick during the CNY/bad weather period, I was perfectly fine? Why, when everyone else (i.e. daddy/mummy) was sick, I remained healthy? Why, when we are due to fly to our dream holiday tomorrow, I choose to fall sick? Sigh...

  1. Aiyah...what a bad timing to fall sick and it happened to Gwen too. Don't forget to bring all the meds when you go. Drink lots of water.

    Maybe miracle will happen. She will be cured tomorrow..you never know.
