This parenting thing is ROUGH!!!! and kinda scary.
My five year old very quietly warmed right up to 103.8 degrees yesterday.
I very quietly PANICKED… and then proceeded to do all the things that I know you must do. I placed her in water and wet her hair in an attempt to cool her down and then I fed her some potent fever medicine which normally kicks in after 45min or so. And then ran her to the doctor. (Thank God there is a doc office across the street)It took 3 hours to cool down to normal. I sat with her at the Doctors for 3 hours and all they could say is that she may have a virus, because nothing seems inflamed, red or infected. So fever medicine it is and we wait it out.
Today I have a son who is also warming up but thankfully not as hot as his sister. Yet
Fever scares me. Thank God for Panadol and Thank GOD for CATAFLAM.
Still no sleep for me. need to make sure that the fever keeps cool.
looking forward to flu season to be over.
