PBMT - Day 354

We have been hanging out in the Hong Kong Garden on weekends. Adrian enjoys the kids playground there very much.

PBMT - Day 348

Took a day off from school and headed to QMH for Adrian's regular 8-weeks appointment. First, Adrian had the blood test (actually it was US who requested the blood test just to make sure everything is ok before the vaccination on Dec 10th) and then we were assigned to see Dr. Ha! There he told us the last CT Scan result on Nov 4th was CLEAR and the last VMA/HVA were good within the normal range as well. Adrian was meant to have the flu shot there but since he caught a cold/flu, we've rescheduled it on Dec 29th for the first dose and Jan 19th for the second dose.

PBMT - Day 347

Adrian's runny nose has come back for days and now Mama got sick with a cold as well. We all stayed home and took some rest. Again, Adrian started his VMA/HVA free diet today in preparation for the urine collection first thing tomorrow morning for our appointment at QMH.

PBMT - Day 346

We were still puzzling whether we should join in with the other families to the Ocean Park today... Luckily, the red bumps on Adrian's face subsided and leaving behind only the red dots. So we gave it a shot and packed light for our Ocean Park day event organized by the CCF. It's fortunate enough that we got the tickets as we were on the waiting list since a couple of other registered families didn't show up. Adrian got to spend a day full of fun with his best buddy in K8N. It took the whole morning for Adrian to get fully warmed up and he showed his first smile when he was riding the Merry-Go-Round. We then checked out the Panda, rode on the cable car, saw the show at the Ocean Theatre. Adrian loves fish and he was so fascinated when we were touring the Atoll Reef and the Jelly Fish Acquarium. Here are some of the highlights.

PBMT - Day 345

Adrian woke up this morning with a puffy left eye... We didn't pay too much attention to it until Mama came to pick him up from school and noticed a few more red patches on his forehead. Again, we thought they were allergies or possible mosquito bites... then fast forward to a few hours of napping after our weekly physio and OT session, Adrian woke up with a swollen head around 21:00! Both his left eye bag area and his forehead appeared to have "swollen" red bumps and some were even on his arms. We had no idea what's going on and we ended up bringing him to A&E at QMH. Having spent half an hour at A&E (priorty given to Adrian who had undergone ABMT less than a year ago), the doctor told us the red bumps were not mosquito bites but probably caused by insect bites! It could be bed bugs or some other bugs.... Unfortunately we have no ideas what causes it and poor Adrian was given some ointment to put on the affected area for temporary relief.

PBMT - Day 344

Mama was so scared to find out if Adrian had his meals at school or not... the answer is YES! This piece of news is good enough to make her day!

PBMT - Day 343

Adrian has been having lunch at school for almost a month (well, a day short of a month) and not only does he snack regularly, he finishes all his lunch everyday.... EXCEPT today!!! When Mama came to pick up Adrian today, the teacher told her that Adrian refused to eat at snack time AND lunch! He only drank the soup and that was it. Not sure why as Adrian didn't eat as he's had this dish before. Hoping that he's not getting tired of the school lunch meals, as he does with Mama's.

PBMT - Day 340

Adrian doesn't feel like eating (as always) and Mama has run out of ideas what to make him for meals. So tonight when we hanged out at the mall, we let Adrian try out the "street" food instead of bringing our own. He officially passed and he had a bowl of vermicelli with tofu puffs & some meat.

PBMT - Day 339

The "suspected rash" on Adrian's face seemed to have gone and the more we look at it, the more we think they are in fact mosquito bites. Let's hope they are REALLY mosquito bites and nothing serious.

PBMT - Day 338

Adrian goes to school this morning as usual as the fever seemed to have gone and his rash is less apparent. However, we've cancelled the weekly fine motor skills training this afternoon and booked him for a doctor's appointment. Adrian spent more than an hour playing on his bed instead of napping. So Mama decided to bring Adrian for a haircut before the doc appointment. It was Adrian's second haircut and again, he sat still for the entire cut. It's until the rinsing part that he cried out loud as he's not used to lying down for a hair wash.

Overall, Adrian behaved very well... even at the doc clinic after the haircut & shopping with Mama before our appointment time. He was very patient with the doctor who closely examined his mouth, chest, bum and even foot (doc wanted to make sure he didn't get hand, foot & mouth disease). Luckily the doc ruled out the possibility of hand, foot & mouth disease and he suspected Adrian got some kind of allergies by either contacting plant or insect for which we had no idea what it was all about... Apart from the allergies, we also mentioned that Adrian has been coughing since he vomitted twice on the day of his CT Scan on Nov 4th. He coughed because he choked after vomitting, not because he has a cold. And the doctor seems to have a similar finding saying that Adrian's left lung is not as clear as it should. He then sent Adrian for a quick chest x-ray just to make sure everything was ok. Again, the x-ray was fine and the fever was mainly due to aspiration of solids (via vomitting) in his left lung. Adrian got prescribed some meds including antibiotics to bring home and hopefully he'll feel better.

Adrian was so tired, without napping. He needed to be carried and fussed half way til we got home. He skipped dinner as expected and only had milk then headed to his dreamland.

PBMT - Day 337

Nothing has happened in the past week with Adrian enjoying school life up until this evening when Adrian developed some low grade fever (37.9C - 38.1C). He also had some mild rash, like mosquito bites, on his face & finger. We weren't sure if the rash and the fever are related but we may have to bring him go see the doctor tomorrow.

PBMT - Day 328

Adrian didn't go to school today but to QMH for his 6-months CT Scan is due. The whole procedure went smoothly with the exception that Adrian got poked three times (because he cried and moved so much that the doctor was having a hard time finding his vein) and he threw up twice when taking the sedation meds. Adrian was so tired after the vomitting and crying that he passed out as soon as we got downstairs waiting outside the CT Scan room. We'll know the results on our next visit at the Outpatient clinic on Nov 24th.
