Ryan’s temperature was still a little on the higher side (36.8 – 37.1) last night. Yeah, he wasnt really having a fever but being the usual kiasu kiasi mummy, I finally brought Ryan to see the paed last night.
The paed checked everything, nose, eyes, ears, head, hands, toe, fingers, all all all. Found nothing wrong. My heart aches when I saw paed used a stick thing to push Ryan’s tongue down to check on his throat. Ryan went “Oek Oek Oek” (the puke sound) and used his hands to push the paed’s hand away. We have to use force to keep Ryan still. Then he went “Wah-Wah-Wah” (but no tears) and as soon as paed removed the stick, Ryan straightened his back, twisted left and right trying his futile luck to break free. My poor baby. Think he was trying to get away from the paed. His eyes by then were all red due to the Wah-Wah-Wah earlier.
Paed couldn’t find anything wrong with Ryan. Then paed asked me one question. How bad was Ryan’s fever. I said err.. highest was 37.3C. He gave me a funny smiley face and said “You shouldn’t worry. That’s not FEVER”. Kekekeke… Behind his smiley face I can read his mind *This mummy so silly stupid.. really tak han mo yeh cho*. Sorry lor.. but better be safe than sorry.
Anyways.. paed did advise us to give more water to Ryan after seeing his red and cracked lips. (chinese say YIT HEI). Erm, easier to say than done. Ryan hates drinking plain water. He will take a few sip before he pushed the bottle away. That’s how extreme he could go against plain water. But when he sees me preparing juice (his fav prune and apple) he will snatch the bottle from me before I’m even done twisting the cover.
I am in dilemma. What drinks besides plain water I can offer to a fussy heaty 9 months old baby? They say barlee without sugar… anything else ar? Pray help.. anyone can share with me some good advise?
This morning while chit chatting with auntie, so happened the topic of honey was brought up. I said never ever feed Ryan with honey. She went.. “Oh, really” “Cannot meh”. At the back of my mind I was like “WTF, why she sounded so blur and like san yau si (guilty look)” Of course she said she did not feed Ryan with honey but I seriously hope she’s telling the truth… sigh.
