My Little Pumpkin's Down

I saw a red spot on his left shoulder and thought, hmm.. maybe not. we were suppose to have guests over that afternoon, mus, rozie and the girls, but the doctor confirmed it was waterpokken earlier that morning. so i had to ring them up to cancell and apologise.

My little pumpkin is down with the pox. But he can still laugh during breakfast! Look!



But as the day went by, more and more seems to appear. he got very clingy, less bubbly, less cheerful, less talkative, less crawling, cant let go of my leg and cant let go of me! i just cant seem to put him down! i cant even go to the loo. he wants to sleep on me and always wants me to carry him. but at certain stage i just had to put him down, he IS 12kg!! but i am trying to be with him at all times to just soothe the pain and comfort him. and this morning he woke up with a temp of 39.2.



My poor Aidan. its heartbreaking. my heart cries when i look at him. but i know i have to be strong for him and keep his mind occupied with my stories, my singings with us playing.. i know it hurts and its itches. i wish i could make the pain dissappear.

His fair skin has turned red with spots, I cant blow his fluffy cheeks, i cant tickle his chubby thighs, scared that it might be painful, i'm struggling to find a spot to kiss his on his once smooth forehead, i cant put my face on his tummy after his change, we cant tickle his body, no more playing "this little piggy"... i kept kissing his cheeks, his tiny hands, his tiny feet and pray it will all go away.

I kept telling him that how mama and papa are so proud of him and that we love him. we understand how he feels and he'll get out of this being stronger and he can fight this and it will be over in no time. nanti dah baik kita gi jalan jalan, we'll take a stroll down the lake to see our ducks, we'll play at the playground, mama will make you some ice cream... i hope he understands and know whats in our hearts...



I hope aidan will be stronger, happier, back to his oldself, bouncy, bubbly, happy and healthy very soon. they say it's gonna take at least 10 days. i'm just counting the days till the spots are all gone.

Sorry to hear about Aidan's bout of chicken pox!
There is coconut juice being sold in hyper markets (like C1000) or Turkish sundry shops.
And calamine lotion will help with the itching...
Take great care.

Hugs and kisses to Aidan!

alahai... ciannya aidan. take care tau!Za, kalau ikut petua org tua2 kat sini, kat umah tu jangan masak yg goreng2. rebus @ steam je. kalau goreng2 takut dia rasa lagi gatal. Itu org tua2 kat sini pesanlah. pas tu make sure tak kena hujan langsung (by the way kat sana hujan ke?) takut nanti bintik2 hitam tu tak hilang sampai besar.

Hi Zaza, very cool here in gent, kesian org2 kat sini, mengidam summer dapat autumn = ) But i hv no complaints, i am VERY happy with this version of the summer, i get enough yearly sun from our trips home for Raya = ) I wish your baby a speedy recovery! Nora has spots weeks ago and it turn out to be just a re-action to her fever. Kindof good Aidan has it now, i pray that Nora will get it during summer, senang, and hope she wont get my genes, cos i only got my poxes when i was 30 yrs old!!! arrghhh, seksa babe! hehehe Ok hv a superb weekend, will pray for a super speedy recovery for Aidan and lots of rest for Aidan's mamma!

Alamak, kesiannyer!! Is it very hot now? Keep him cool/airy, it gets very itchy. Kalau teruk try cari that neem soap, it's daun semambu traditionally used to ease the itch and kurengkan spots. Don't know if it will help Aidan. We did a lot of things to aid Naufal when he got the pox. Tried calamine, but his skin was allergic to calamine, which made it worst. I know your feeling, mase Naufal kena i cried too. He was Aidan's age when he caught the virus. There's immunization, but only for 1yr above. I hope Aidan's a minor case and will recover very soon. Sabar lah, za. Tunggu sampai spots kuwar kat tapak kaki, then they will dry off (another week of itch & adoi..). Take care.

Hi Zaza. Hope Aiden is feeling better by now. I'm looking to drop by this Sunday but of course I'll call first - kesian tengok Aiden sakit macam gitu tapi sakit2 pun tetap cute!!! Geram aku tak puas cium dia kelmarin!!!

Hi Zaza. Hope Aidan is feeling better by now.. Cutenya dia... ketawa dia buat Kak Azi geram aje..

Moga Aidan cepat sihat...

Hope Aidan gets better soon. try bathing him in lukewarm water with a tablespoon of sodium bicarbonate in it. My dad told me that it reduces the itchiness.
