My throat still hurts and I am coughing like someone who has TB. My phlegm is still greenish yellowish and my eyes are really red. Each time I have a really bad bout of upper respiratory infection, my eyes would get red and swollen too. […]
Month: February 2009
My throat still hurts today and I am also coughing with lots of thick yellow phlegm. I don’t have much appetite to eat, so I just drank some soup and ate half a cup of organic yoghurt for lunch. The Chinese say that snow fungus is good for the lungs so I boiled a pot of soup made up of snow fungus, Chinese white almonds, dried longan meat, red dates, wolfberries or goji berries, yoke choke (Solomon’s Seal) and pork ribs.
Baby C loves her porridge and I’ve been making her the same porridge with the following ingredients for almost 3 months every day:
Alternate between white and brown rice
Goji berries or wolfberries or gei jee (touted as a super fruit packed with antioxidants and nutrients)
3 red dates
1 small wedge of pumpkin or sweet potato
1 small wedge of carrot
1 french bean or any other bean or a floret of brocolli
Sometimes I throw in some red beans, mung beans and soy beans
Chicken or pork
2 weeks ago, I put in some organic millet into her porridge.
I also add in about 1 tablespoon of E.Excel’s Nutrifresh powder (mixture of fruits and veggie powder) and some cranberry powder into her porridge. That’s the only way Baby C will eat her cranberry powder (which has a sour and slightly bitter taste). Don’t know how effective it is in preventing UTIs but worth a try.
On top of this bowl of porridge, Baby C my soup lover also gulps down half a bowl of soup at every meal everyday.
Today I collected Baby C’s pee for tests again. The last test done was about 2 weeks ago. The WBC today is 3-4. I know this isn’t a good sign, though the reading is insignificant. The fashion in Baby C’s UTI occurance is that it will come about 4-6 weeks after the last attack. Her last attack was on 17 January 09. As the days are drawing close to 17 Feb 09, I’m feeling the jitters now. The WBC can accelerate real fast as the bacteria proliferates. Though there’s no bacteria in her pee today, it could be there the next day. Oh gawd, I just hope Baby C doesn’t get another UTI attack coz if she does, the surgery that’s scheduled to be carried out late this month would have to be postponed.
