Yesterday we caught the train from Guangzhou to Hong Kong. That was really fun! I sat in a seat with my back to the front of the train and it felt funny to be riding backwards. Alex started itching and before we knew it he was a big itchy red splotch. When we arrived in Hong Kong Alex failed the temperature test, he had a 102 temp!!! I was freaking out…we were detained…ultimately they checked him out and recommended we take him to a doctor. We got to the hotel and bathed him in cool water, loaded him up with Zyrtec and Tylenol and he woke up this morning a LOT better. His rash has faded and no more fever.
The only thing we can think of is that he tried out some pineapple and that might have done it. I will have get him allergy tested. That was scary.
The pics of the kids sitting are them on the train. There are two pics of Lillian Xiang Xiang….calling us to board….later!
