We were the unlucky few I guess. My daughters fever turned out to be the hand, foot and mouth disease. I spotted the oral ulcers, blisters on my little girl hand this morning and suspected it might be this and quickly took them to the clinic. She also has some tiny red spots rash on her foot, hand and buttock areas which we first thought might be heat rash and sort of ignored it. And then my older girl started to have high fever early this morning and not feeling so well. So, I suspected she might contract the same disease as my little one. True enough, both of them have hand, foot and mouth disease and it needs to run it course in about a week. No wonder my Edda has no appetite at all. She was the one that help herself on food first and suddenly she was like pushing the food away. She also became very cranky and kept crying for no apparent reason (reason being painful ulcer but at that time I had no idea). Now we know. The doctor gave them a medicine for fever and drops for reducing pain and fever. I hope they will feel better soon as we will be heading back to U.S. this Sunday.
Because of this we won't be able to visit Sentosa Island. My girls have to be in quarantine until they recover simply due to the fact that this viral is highly contagious. Guess I also won't be able to visit Daiso and meet E from Precious Moment due to this short coming. :(
