This pic was taken on the day Baby C was discharged from the hospital. We had lunch at Ocean Green Seafood restaurant again. I ordered a steamed egg and gave a few teaspoons to Baby C. When we went to this restaurant for dinner a month ago, we ordered steamed egg, steamed fish and spinach soup for Baby C. She ate them and was ok. We are now suspecting that the steamed egg this time had Salmonella bacteria and that’s what’s causing Baby C the intestinal viral infection. Anyway we will know the truth when the results of her stool culture are out tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.

Today is the 5th day that my poor baby has not eaten any solid or semi-solid food. Some of the things that have been going into her tummy via her mouth are Vitamin C syrup, paracetamol syrup, anti bladder spasm meds, some breast milk, Cactus juice and water. That’s about it and my poor baby is still very weak from hunger, all the vomiting, pain and discomfort. She has been on Vamin Glucose drips (a nutrients and vitamins solution) along with the regular saline drips.
I bought a bottle of organic dried seaweed, grains and mixed vegetables from the organic shop the other day. I meant to buy it for Baby C, to sprinkle them on her porridge. On reading the label, I decided not to give it to her as it contains organic raw sugar and organic sea salt.
That’s one of the ways I eat this seasoning powder – by sprinkling them on my hardboiled egg every morning. It can also be sprinkled on porridge and bread. A bottle cost RM27.50 but this organic shop is having a stock clearance for this and sold it at RM20 a bottle. I find it tasty but my kids wouldn’t want to try it, haih!
