Julian started a bout of diarrhoea and fever in the afternoon of 2 Jan 2009. What a start to the year! It was the worst he has experienced. He was diagnosed with acute gastroenteritis. During this time he was rather lethargic, had poor appetite and was very clingy to mummy. In fact, on Saturday (3 Jan) he took almost nothing but breast milk. Fortunately mummy didn't have to be at work for long. We were thankful that he recovered by 7 Jan.
We're not certain of the cause, but on new year's day we took him to an economy rice shop for lunch. There he had porridge with some of the dishes. That same day, mummy suffered a bit of food poisoning. Daddy was fine. Whether this is the cause, we don't know... but we're certainly not taking him back to that shop for anymore meals!
