Back From The Clinic

Yesterday night at 10, didi developed fever (37.8ºC). Gave him a dose of paracetamol. Good thing the fever hasn't returned since then. He was tossing and turning the whole night. And was breathing loud and hard and fast. I was so worried something's wrong. Wished that the hours would pass by faster so that we can bring him to see his paediatrician in the morning.

At the clinic, he was as active as ever. We were the only patient there so he was playing happily with the balls and slide. He didn't fuss much when the doctor checked him. Doctor said his right ear is slightly red. Arrrgh! Ear infection again! Must have spread from the throat. Dr prescribed flu, cough and wheezing medicine and ear drops. I took the antibiotics to standby, in case his condition gets worse.

Didi waved and said "Bye" to Dr when we asked him to. Dr commented that he was behaving much better compared to jie jie when she was his age. I guess he could still remember her screaming and crying the minute she went into his room. :D

Back home, I gave him the medicine. Had to force feed coz he wasn't cooperative. Sweet talking to him didn't work. Letting him fill up the syringe with medicine didn't work. Letting him pump the medicine into his mouth didn't work either. But he didn't mind taking and pumping water into his mouth. :-|

45 minutes after taking all the medicine, you get this...

~ too tired ~

Get well soon CE. My paed always tell me that the most important sign to look for is whether they are behaving normally. If they are, nothing to worry about :)

keira has a cough too, coughing every night,and I also just caught it! went to the doctor here, but they don't prescribe any medicine one. western doctors believe you must just let the cold run its course... so i have to go to pharmacy to buy my own cough medicine. hope yours get better soon!
