Man down, man down !!

It's BOY down, to be exact.
My soon-to-be 3 year old Arif is now down with HFMD.
What on earth is that?
It's the Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease.
We noticed these spots last night but I thought it was just mosquito bites.
So, I told hubby to put Mopiko ointment on it.
He didn't developed any fever and no loss of appetite either.
That's why we couldn't suspect this earlier.
Until this morning, as I was about to change his diaper, I noticed the same spots like, on his palm.
It's obvious.
Something is not right.
We diverted our nursery-route to the nearest clinic.
And no doubt, quarantine is the word enhanced by Dr. Johari.
So now, Arif is officially (and happily) on nursery-break, for the next 7 days.
Hope nothing serious turns out later.
Wish him well !!

My son pun pernah kena.Jangkit from kindie.How could the parent just ignore it, and send the kids for school?
Jaga-jaga, nanti semua kids kat dalam rumah jugak boleh jangkit.

Betol tu nqr !
memang laaa sgt teacher suap makan reramai camtu.. Dah takkan 2 yr old nak makan sendiri kot and tak koser laa teacher nak tunggu sorang sorang habis makan.. Kebulur. Tunggu turn bebudak tu..
Harapkan antibody kids ni kuat lah..

Sometimes fiezachommel parents pon tak sedar..
Mcm i laaa..
Doc kata dah start dari mulut a few days dah.. Then baru melarat ke tangan and kaki..
I mmg tak sedar lansung sbb arif takde komplen pon.
Abg dia dah hantar balik kg. Tinggal i ngn arif je here at home.
InsyaAllah, harap tak melarat..
