So glad we brought Ryan to the paed yesterday. It turns out his fever has no connection with his flu vaccine. He’s actually down with a bacterial throat infection. Was prescribed Augmentin (antibiotics) and suppositories for fever and pain.
Saturday, 28 Jul
11.00pm – Thermoscan reading showed 38.8C again. Inserted suppository. Ryan rolled and whined all night.. Neither hubs nor me had any good sleep.
Sunday, 29 Jul
3.00am – Wailed for no apparent reason. Ryan’s reading remained consistentlyt at 38.5C. Inserted another suppository.
9.00am – Ryan woke up and started behaving oddly. He was cranky and cannot let mommy out of sight.
11.00am – Brought Ryan to the paed. Diagnosed throat infection and was prescribed medication.
1.00pm – Force fed Augmentin (4ml). Poor baby wailed his lungs out.
2.45pm – Woke up after 1 hour nap.
4.30pm – We laid on bed watching Baby Bright after sponging Ryan. I felt his hands and feet were very cold and poor boy shivered. I quickly turned off the aircon and hugged him for warmth.
5.00pm – Ryan’s temp peaked at 39.8C. I almost went berserk. Quickly inserted the Venon suppository. Quickly sponged Ryan with wet towel.
6.30pm – The medicine kicked in. He was able to play a bit.
9.00pm – Tucked Ryan in after another round of sponging and suppository.
11.30pm – Nightmare began. Ryan wailed for no reason. After a while of soothing he dozes off.
12.30am – Wailed again. This time no soothing could bring him back to sleep. He decided he wants to be awake.
1.30am – Still awake
2.30am – Still awake
3.30am – Dozed off
4.30am – Wailed again
5.30am – Wailed again
7.15am – Woke up
We literally did not get any sleep last night but thankfully Ryan’s temp remained below 38C. That is the most important. I really don’t mind not sleeping at all. I just want to see Ryan back to his normal self.
Today, 30 Jul
Sent Ryan to nanny this morning. When I told nanny of Ryan’s ordeal, she said this to me:
Nanny: Poor boy. ‘Keh Lian’. He got infected by ‘fei mui’. Fei mui (chubby baby girl) is the other baby cared by nanny.
Me: (Kek sei. Arrgghh… !!!!)
