Nursing Two Patients: Stomach Flu and Turmeric Ginger Tea

Long time no update because my internet is quite slow to go online and I have been sick with colds.  The other day I have two patients to nurse after my father had a stomach flu and felt feverish, when he came home from work he asked me to make him a cup of coffee since he is feeling cold, I have offer to make him a turmeric ginger tea but he doesn’t like the idea and within just a few hours he started to use the bathroom almost non-stop, he just went out and he has to use it again. We’ve asked him what did he ate at work, it turns they had a raw radish salad for lunch, which make me teased him that maybe the radish was planted near a poop tank that is why the radishes where contaminated, or his co-worker who prepared it has contaminated hands.

Anyway, I initially gave a biogesic capsule to my father since he said he felt cold and feverish when he came home but since he had a situation  I bought two loperamide capsules and asked my sister who went to store to look for ripe bananas but unfortunately there’s none. At dinner I have asked my father to eat so he could take the capsules, he did but since he ate only a spoonful it didn’t help him. It was already midnight and nothing has changed on my father’s situation so I told him, it happens because he didn’t listen to me, he didn’t eat a lot on dinner and not agreeing with me to drink turmeric ginger tea and when I guess he already felt exhausted and tired, he gave in and asked me to make him a turmeric ginger tea, he also ate  a big serving of rice, and that’s where the urge to use the bathroom stopped.

My father wasn’t able to go to work the next day because of what happened overnight, he complained of gassy stomach in the morning so I prepared again turmeric ginger tea for him while my sister teased our father to always listen to his Doctor (pertaining to me), lol.

Well, my father wasn’t feeling well until today, he is complaining for sore body and I hope he will felt better tomorrow already.
