then yesterday nite, it was all pleasant. she was sleeping thru-out till i woke up around 5am to check on her. duno why, since she is with us, i never had a knock out sleep. i will always "terjaga" wan. then i wen cayang her & felt her warm body. i was taken aback for a bit there, i thot she was warm & i double the fan speed. she woke up & i asked her if she wants "nen nen" & she smiled back and say "nen nen" back to me. she drank her milk & slept off back. i have a feeling something was wrong & i woke the dad up. he also felt she was a lil too warm from normal. then i realised "oh crap, fever!"... this is my 1st time dealing with feverish lil missy, all this while i have the privilege of MIL's help as lil missy was taken care by MIL from 2 mths old till lil missy was 15 mths old in Malacca.
i faitit got myself ready & we drove around SK area to check out the clinics & even the 24 hrs clinic also closed. imagine my disappointment. dammit. then we finally found one clinic which is available but it's not under ING coverage, so i gotta pay off myself. we never even register & straight away wen in to see the doc. he was 1/2 asleep, very obvious. sigh. he came to lil missy, felt her head, and told me "ya, she is having fever".. o.O .. then he wen n got the ''butt pellets'' & i asked him "don't you wanna check what's her temperature like?" & you know what the doc told me? "it's obvious she is having fever" wtf!!!! i insisted & he took out the manual thermometer & lil missy was moving so much i doubt the measurement was correct, doc told she is on 38 degrees. then doc insert the med & surprisingly lil missy din kick up a fuss. prob she was too "blur" to feel anything. doc then gave fever med & antibiotic. i told i have paracetamol @ home so i don't need his med, his "black" looking med.
everything happened too quickly & i paid rm55 for all the above. @#$#%@... the antibiotic doc gave is this, have u guys seen this b4? im kinda reluctant to give to lil missy cus more over this doc like blur2 then also not a paediatrician. anyway, after the visit to doc, we head to bbsitter house cus time for us to go to work loh. so so sad. sigh. lucky bbsitter was understanding. got a call few hours later telling me that lil missy's fever has subsided. what a relief man!
im sure a lot of you mommies would have think i over reacted. haha. but it's my 1st time & i haven't got myself the ear thermometer yet. comtemplating to get the digital Braun, Woodwards or just a manual thermometer. it's not cheap man. looks like i better go get myself 1 ASAP. i also got myself some tips from fellow mommies whom i've been bugging since morning over msn. been complaining how stopid i am. went & feed lil missy paracetamol after the doc gave the "butt pellets". it's like double dose of meds. omg. im the worst mom! arrrrghhhh!
thanks mommies whom i have been bugging. im so sorry with my nenek story. you all veteran to all this already, im still a newbie so bear with me ok. if i sms any of you tonite. please layan me ok?
