means one thing – A very crabby and cranky toddler 🙁 It is a torture to see Ashley grimacing in pain every time she drinks or eat *sigh* I wish that it was me who has the ulcers.
The bloody ulcer on her upper lip. There is another smaller one on her inner left cheek. She told me there is another one on the right but I couldn’t see it 🙁
I don’t understand why she is so heaty when she has been drinking lots of water every day, eating fruits daily and I boil herbal drinks for her twice a week. Ashley is still feverish with temperature around 37.6 – 38.2 deg Celsius. We have already seen the paed 3 x this week because she is also coughing 🙁 I just hope that darn ulcer will go away asap.
I have been applying the “watermelon” powder (a chinese medicated powder for ulcers) but it didn’t help. Yesterday, I brought her to the paed again and was given the above Oral Aid. She screams her head off each time I apply these gel/powder for her. Very heartbreaking but Ashley didn’t refuse each time eventhough she knows she’ll be in lots of pain. She just wants me to hug her tightly while she cries her heart out after that 🙁
