Back in U.S.

We safely arrived in COS yesterday. I had to dress Evy in long pant, long sleeve shirt, socks and also covered her hands with socks all the way home. We got a scare in the Hong Kong airport as the officer asked us to remove her socks on her hands. Luckily when my husband explained that it was some rashes, she didn't pursue it. *wipe sweat* Evy was still having painful throat and mouth sores on all the flights home, thus she hardly eaten anything. Luckily Edda was feeling better and able to eat and sleep. My parents in-law came with us and they will be here for two weeks. Right now we are all suffering from jet lag, some more severe, some just mild. After this update, I need to go get some sleep too, I woke up at 5am this morning and I don't think I get enough rest. I can't cook because I cleared my fridge before I went back, so later we will have to do some grocery shopping. Edda is back to her usual self again and happily eating and requesting for food. She is able to play and run around again. Evy is getting better, at least her throat and mouth is not painful anymore. However since she is getting hit hard on her hands and feet, it will probably takes a while for her scars to disappear. Right now all her sores, blisters, red spots were turning dark red and dried up, and very scarely looking. I hope it won't leave her with ugly scars!

You are back in US already ah?! :D When I return from a trip somewhere, I usually become too lazy to cook - plus, similarly, I find it hard to get groceries only till I recover from jet- lag and tiredness.

WHO said...

oh my goodnes... how can u be so irresponsible and let the kids travel when they are sick..

this is how epidemics strike lor.. when victims travel.. but the diff is, these victims dont know they are suffering from a contagious disease.. u KNOW they are having hand foot mouth disease..

so irresponsible!

Lia said...

Doesn't sound pleasant. Hope your girls are much better now.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Tigerfish,
Yes, back already. Since my inlaws are here, have to show them around and thus not much time to cook.

Hi WHO,
Just being practical. Unless you want to pay for our air-tickets (for 4) then it's another story. All we could do is to cover her and forbid her to play or go near other kids.

Thanks Lia. She is recovered now. Hoping to cook something worthy of posting also. :P

Thanks wokandspoon! They are back to their normal selfs already. :)
