HFMD STRIKE!!

NO SCHOOL FOR ALL THE SINGAPOREAN KIDS FOR TWO WEEKS!

We are ordered to quarantine ourselves as much as possible for the coming 2 weeks. 4 kids were confirmed to have contacted HFMD. There are a few of them including Shannon were having fever and ulcers in their mouth and thus probably the next victims.


BUT WHERE AND HOW DID THE VIRUS REACHES OUR KIDS????

According to information gathered, all the kids above had either attended the lantern festival celebration or the kids yoga session.



As for Shannon, her fever started last night. Initially, I thought it was because of the weather and the heaty food that she had these few days. Then this morning, we saw some tiny tiny little ulcers in her mouth. AND NOW, I discovered that rashes have started to appear on her foot!!!!!



It seems that Shannon would not be able escape the fate of having HFMD!! I really hope that this entire HFMD will go away asap and all our kids will get well soon.

Lily Ann said...

Oh no!

Not to worry, she'll still be active and jumping about. Keep yourself sane during this time too! Ehh....use more Dettol & hand sanitiser.

Hi Jasmine,

I'm surprised that HFMD went all the way to france!

And yes, it sounds like shannon caught HFMD.

Remember, Claire kana twice?? So I know some thing about it*roll eyes*

It's normal that she'll lose her appetite. Drinking and eating hurts. *heartpain*

Don't worry, it'll go away in 5-7 days. Meanwhile, try to keep her hydrated.

Take care of yourself too!
