Princess is not well.. Actually, she has been unwell for more than a week.. She started with a runny nose.. Then she started coughing.. And for the past week, we would get very stressed whenever she coughed as we always had to clean up the mess after she ‘merlioned’..
We got some cough medicine from Eu Yan Sang.. She seemed to be slightly better, or so we thought.. Hmm.. Her cough was still phlegmy but there was no fever.. We just kept asking her to drink water..
Due to work commitments, both of us couldn’t take Childcare leave and would pray hard every morning that she would pass the morning screening at the ccc..
Just last Saturday night, she came over at around 3am and asked to sleep with us.. She complained that she couldn’t breathe so I gave her some nose drops to clear her nose.. Then at about 4am, we found that she was very hot.. 40 degrees Celsius! I gave her ibuprofen to bring down her temperature.. Then we sponged her for a while.. In the end, we gave her a cold shower to bring down her temperature.. Sigh..
Her fever kept coming back so we prayed hard that she’d be better today..
This morning, her temperature hit 39.. I decided that it’s time I brought her to the doctor.. I know there were things to be done at work but I’m sure I’m not indispensable at work and that my girl needed me more today.. Finally, I decided to take childcare leave to bring her to Dawson Place Clinic..
She was given Augmentin, Salbutamol, Rinathiol and Fedac.. She was also given Flumicil to help clear her phlegm.. Doc says there was no wheezing and that the fever should go away after 2 days of antibiotics.. And for the record, her weight was 13.4kg…
She slept a lot throughout the day.. Hopefully all the rest she had would be useful for her recovery..
She was still cheerful most of the time although she got a bit cranky when she felt sleepy..
She was still active and playful enough able to wink when I brought her to Yakun for breakfast! 🙂
