~ aina is sick ~

13 May 2008

so, aina really is sick. she didn’t get better from two days ago. in fact, her sickness has gotten worse. we went to the pediatrician yesterday and it turns out that she has viral infection. she seemed normal during the doctor visit… she even flirted with other little boys (older ones, mostly) and tried to play with smaller babies in the doctor waiting room. but as soon as we got home, all hell broke loose.

she had no appetite. she had a hard time falling asleep, and all she wanted to do is being cuddled. you know, the typical baby problems when they’re sick.

while waiting for the fever medicine to work, her fever reached 39ºC and was still going up. and you know those cooling pad that you put on baby’s forehead? they don’t work at all. the thingy got really hot and didn’t do anything. we had to resort to the old fashion way: damp towels on armpits, head and crotch area. she didn’t want to drink milk because her nose was stuffed…

hopefully, she gets better today. at least, last night she didn’t wake up as often as the night before, which means she gets more rest. she’s currently taking her morning nap. ari is catching up sleep. and i am going to knit — something that i haven’t done for months.
