My Niece Nong Ja, Isaan Thailand.
This is my little princess and she is fast asleep. She complained yesterday after returning from school (daycare) that she had a tummy ache. There has been no temperature but the last two days complains of a tummy ache and a headache.
She hasn’t eaten much these last two days but is keeping her fluids up, has been sick a few times and a little clingy at times. There has been a terrible flu going through Ubon, adults and kids struck down and with some ending up in hospital. Ja’s class only had 7 or 8 students for a few days as the rest had fallen ill.
Ja has so many stuffed toys, they get accumulated and then given away and accumulated again. But these ones stay as they are her own little family. Ja is holding herself here.
This is her mum Joom.
This is her dad Jack.
This is her Auntie Miss Noot.
And this is me, Jay. I used to be a bear. I don’t know if this is worse or better being a frog.
She will often come into the bedroom telling me that one of the dolls is crying or sick and then we have to have a little chat and make them better. She gets medicine and food for them if they are hungry. It is absolutely priceless and love it.
Ja loves Power Rangers, Ben 10, Mr. Bean, Looney Tunes and so on. But her Rangers outfits are special and when we first bought her a matching outfit, we couldn’t get it off and bought another so we could alternate and wash them. Now her dad jack has bought her a few Ben Ten 10 shirts and she was very happy to model the new addition although not so well.
The girls have gone out tonight, so Ja and myself have been alone. Ja’s mum has arrived back in Ubon for a month’s holiday so she is here as well. Tonight Ja has been so quiet, a few times tears and complaints of a head or tummy ache. She has had some medicine and spent most the day sleeping.
I hope tomorrow she will be back to her normal little self soon and driving me completely crazy again.
Actually just now she woke up and crying and has a bit of a temperature, so maybe it is the flu. She is not a happy camper as Noot isn’t here.
