Anney is hospitalised

Anney is currently being hospitalised.

It all started on Monday midnight when Anney started puking out all her milk, all over herself and the bed. Then the vomiting continued every hour or so. She can't keep anything down, whether milk or water!

Then at around 4am, DH drove Anney to the ER and Anney was given an anti-vomit jab. The vomiting did stopped for 8 hours or so and it all started again after that. Although Anney was still quite active, the constant vomiting worried me sick. She was hungry but just could not keep anything down in her tummy.

We sent her back to ER in the evening and luckily, there was a paediatrician on duty that evening. She diagnosed that Anney to have acute gastroenteritis and the possible cause is viral. Apparently, there is a gastroenteritis outbreak in town and it started before Hari Raya. The paed immediately requested Anney to be admitted to the hospital for IV drip as one of the main concern for gastroenteritis is dehydration. Dehydration can happen very quickly in young children!

Poor Anney cried big time when the doctor and nurses inserted the IV line on her left hand. They also have to bandaged her right hand to prevent her from pulling the IV line.

The paed has just instructed to stop the IV drip now(after 22 hours) and luckily, the vomiting has also stopped. They has also given anti-vomit drug in the IV drip earlier. If Anney could resumes drinking and eating normally, then Anney probably could be discharged tomorrow.

Am praying hard Anney will be well soon!

Hi, hope that Anney gets well soon. I'd just been to the ob-gyn (near the paed's office) and was really stressed seeing and hearing kids' getting IVs in!
