sigh!

my lil missy been having fever on / off since this episode & i dunno what to do now but to pray for her speedy recovery. she will be OK by daytime & the fever will kick in by midnight normally around 4-5am. im really worried as of why is she experiencing this for more than a week already. from last tuesday till today (she was OK during the weekends), she hasn't recover completely.

there is no rashes, she only vomited once on last tuesday, she has runny nose, cough a little, little phlegm, she still eats her porridge, drinks her water, playful, demanding & cranky. hopefully no dengue symptoms, or hfmd symptoms. her temperature varies from 37+ degrees to the highest 39.5 degrees. the 1st visit to the pediatrician, we were not given antibiotics. however, we were given it today, when we paid the pediatrician another visit. doc checked her breathing, told that lil missy's throat is still reddish, got a lil virus there, must give her lots of water. no cold drinks, bla... bla... the usual stuff. but why is she still having fever?

the last i checked, i could see her a molar coming out, probably this is causing her fever? sigh. im really stressed now. i no longer can see lil missy's chubby cheeks. that's a goner. im so sad. CNY is coming. what i can do now is only to monitor her & keep giving her medicine to keep the fever away, but i know giving too much medicine is no good... but what else i can do? we are going back to malacca this friday, if lil missy still is still having this fever marathon, i might want to bring her to pantai melaka to see her paeditrician there, have her blood check or something. and i seriously don't want to do that.

hey, viral infection (throat is red) normally takes a week or so to go away, even with antibiotics. Remember what the mommy you met at KLCC told you? Fever is not a bad thing. It's the body trying to fight the infection. As long as she is happily playing and no signs of lethargy, then it means she's fine. don't worry ok?

better be sure she has no infection. go bring her see dr again.

dont worry so much...i'm sure she'll be fine. as long as she eating regularly and still active as ever, then she's recovering. give it some time and keep track of her temperature. if by weekend you're still worried, then visit the doc. keep me updated on the progress, ok?

p/s: shiok nye balik melaka for cny...jealous gua :(

I hope lil missy has no more fever by now. If her fever still persists, you gotta let the paed check further. Get well soon and have a safe journey back tomorrow :)
