Its terrible to get sick during this period of time especially when you are down with fever, sore throat, cough and flu. These were exactly what Ethan was down with when we brought him to see the doctor again this morning. And so, the doctor asked the magical question again, “Did Ethan come into contact with anyone who has return from H1N1 affected countries?” My answer to her was “NO” BUT, I do not know if any of his classmates has been to H1N1 affected countries.
But then again, as we discuss with the doctor, the childcare would have turn away students who are sick. So after much deliberation, the doctor decided to give him addtional medication. I could see from the doctor’s face that she was thinking, and thinking and thinking whether to call 993, and I was hoping she would not, cause I just cannot imagine how we are going to manage it. And since Ethan did not come into contact with anyone who went to H1N1 affected countries (to my knowledge), I was pretty confident that the doctor would not have done so.
Separately, Singapore has reported 34 cases as of Saturday, an increase of 7 such cases. So far, all the cases, except 1, are imported cases and let’s hope that this situation will remain as it is and there will not be any community spread.
