My precious not well..

My precious Ethan hasn't been well since yesterday. He has fever and it was pretty high when we brought him to his paed yesterday evening. His hands and feet were cold which the doctor said it's an indication of high fever. True enough as his temperature reading was 39.1 Celsius. In order to control his temperature, the paed inserted the fever medicine in the bottom. His paed recommends to use such type of fever medicine if the fever is above 38.5 Celsius. Ethan is on antibiotic too coz his fever is high and that his throat is already a bit reddish. I feel tense whenever I have to give him medicines as its very difficult to give him medicine nowadays. He used to take it with water when he was smaller but now he doesn't want it anymore. Only for a few sips and that's about it. I did tried giving him his medicine using the syringe but he vomited it out twice and I just don't have the heart to see him vomiting and crying again. So I didn't try again..just keep on checking his temperature every hour last night. I inserted another one in the bottom at 4am coz his hands and feet were cold again. Hope his fever will go away soon. The paed did mentioned that he will have fever for at least 2 days ...so hopefully after today he will be alright.... MIL just called and told me that Ethan temp is 38.6 Celsius ...oh dear...hopefully after giving him panadol and sponging he'll be better...my poor little baby...hope you'll get well soon sweet heart... how I wish there is an easier way to give medicines to children... or at least make the medicine taste better for them...sigh...

I agree - medicines for babies should be made more tasty.

Hope Ethan feels better now.

poor ethan! kesian tengok baby kita sakit kan Jatt? My Anya had a high temperature last weeek too a and non-stop coughing. Took her to the doctor but they only advised to give her Carpol and Ibuprofen. Luckily she liked it cause it has a strawberry flavour. She's fine now. I hope Ethan will get better soon. Give lots of love and hugs...extra!
