This is going to be another of those long, sleep-deprived nights… Our eldest, 39 month old Tim, seems to have come down with something. Just this morning he was his usual, bright, perky, self-assured, loud, lovable self and then this evening he started looking feverish and had a bit of a cough starting up.
After coming home from anticipated mass, he refused to eat dinner and said he wanted to go to sleep instead. This truly surprised me and his Papa, as usually we’d have to practically force him to go to bed early.. this meant there was something wrong with him indeed! By 8.30 pm Tim was fast asleep.
We called his pediatrician who advised us to give him some Paracetamol so we woke him up, but he ended up spitting it all out and throwing up whatever was left in his stomach at that time (*sighs*)… At the risk of another vomiting episode, we decided to give him some Fern-C enriched grape juice instead every 2 hours.
And guess what?
So far, so good. His initial temperature before 9 pm was 38.5 degrees Celsius. After his first Fern-C juice intake at 10 pm, his temp dropped to 38.3.
It’s now almost time for his third Fern-C intake. His temp a few minutes ago was 38.
After this, maybe I’ll really consider helping Papa (my Dad!) more with the Fern-C business!
