Sleep Deprivation

@ 15 months 2 weeks 2 days

Ryan is better, temp has gone down (below 37.5c) though his appetite is still pretty poor gauging by his standard. I think he lost huge amount of weight. Suddenly I could carry him for much longer time now :P

He is back to his normal self (ball, ball, ball everyday). Come to think of it, even when he was down with high fever he was still very much into streneous activities, romping here and there.

Initially when nanny told me Ryan took his medicine willingly, I really doubted cos from past experience and the last few days’ med feedings, Ryan wailed pitifully with big big tears every single dose we fed him. Yesterday nanny did the magic in front of me. True enough. Ryan gulped down the Augmentin antibiotics, infact not one but two teaspoons (4ml, nanny splited into two feedings) without a single whine. I was astounded. My son surely knows who to bully. *grin*

Last night marked the 4th night since we had any good sleep due to Ryan’s unexplained tossing and whining during the night.

Eerrr.. How come I don’t remember getting any sleep at all???

Yeah.. it’s that bad. I pray for a better night tonight.

Wish us luck~~~

*Zombie face

***** on a separate note, whenever Ryan sees my hairband laying around, he’ll pick it up and put it on top of my head. Last week I asked

Mommy: Ryan, do you want to wear mommy’s hairband?
Ryan: (nod, nod, nod)
Mommy: (knowing he’ll get overreacted for anything that goes on top of his head, I asked again) Are you sure you want to wear mommy’s hairband?
Ryan: (nod, nod, nod)

Ok la… here goes the cheeky boy: (22 Jul 07)

Updated 7 Aug: That night Ryan finally slept thru the night. Daddy and Mommy finally got some decent sleep but speaking of phobia, we were so paranoid even with Ryan’s slightest whim afraid it’s gonna be another long night. Phew~~~
