Fever, Fever Go Away...

If I remember correctly, it's been a while since I last fell ill. Kalau ada pun, it's just the normal flu I've been getting now and then. But it was not the same case this time. Last Friday evening, I was down with fever, two days after Fadzil recovered from the same illness (obviously I 'inherited' the virus from my man :P).

I was so weak this time, not able to do much but lying down and slept most of the time. To Mimy and Fiza, if you both read this, I am truly sorry for not able to make it to the weddings. Serious tak larat sangat :( My weekend this time was totally wasted. I felt so guilty towards my two men that in a way I ruined their weekend plan as well but at the same time I felt so lucky and touched that both of them were so understanding and caring towards me. Fadzil did a great job taking care of Faaz alone and Faaz was so well behaved, probably understanding the situation. Thanks both sayangs, mommy love you guys soooo much!! Owh, when being explained by Fadzil that his mommy was sick, Faaz immediately came to me and touched my forehead..

"Mommy not well...mommy got fever."
"Daddy, get mommy ubat
!" before he kissed my forehead.

Awwwwh...isn't it sweet :)

During the period, I tried my best to quarantine myself from Faaz, worrying that he might get the virus too. I even slept in the guest room during the weekend. The fever finally gone away by Monday evening so that night I slept as usual in our bedroom. It was a bad, bad move :(

The next morning, I felt Faaz body was a bit warm. I was a bit worried. However, the thermometer gave the normal temperature and Faaz seemed to act normally. By evening, the temperature had gone up. He got the fever....obviously from me. *sangat sedih*. His face was reddish although he still active as always when I got home from work. Mama told me she did gave him 2 dosage of medication yet still no improvement. Immediately I called Fadzil to came home early so that we can bring him to the clinic.

This little boy insist to play his Car Racing game while waiting for me to wear my hijab...


There was a long queue when we arrived at the Pediatric Clinic in USJ21. According to the nurse, most of the kids who came were having fever cause everyone seemed to have the 'cool fever' thingy on their forehead. Sah, memang musim demam lah sekarang ni...


Faaz did not show any discomfort while waiting for his turn. Instead he conquered the slide there all the time, playing until his name was called. We were surprised that within half an hour, his temperature has gone up to 39.8deg! Quickly Dr. Deng gave him the medication through the butt. Alhamdulillah, the temperature went down quickly and the fever was severe that night. However, I still got up every hour just to check on him...risau!


The next day, his temperature fluctuated and it all got to do with his behavior in consuming the medication. Ya Rabbi, these days it was so hard to make Faaz take his medication. It took two or three of us just to make him consume a 4ml of medicine. Kalau berjaya pun, he managed to make himself nausea and within a minute or two, he vomited everything. It was so stressful everytime we want to ensure he got the 4ml dosage at the prescribed time! We've tried so many tactics but it wont work. We even 'injected' the antibiotics into his favourite drink: vitagen since the color is almost the same. It only wo
rked once. During the 2nd attempt, he gave back the vitagen's bottle and told us that, "vitagen not nice, yuck!" with a sour face.. (T_T).


The last attempt was through persuasive approach. Since he loves Chuggington cartoon so much, we told him if he can finish his "ubat", we will bring him to the Toys'R Us to get another train. He was so happy, demanded that he wanted "Brewster" this time. He did finished his ubat. However, this eager young men fell asleep while waiting for me to perform my prayer...


Since we had promised him and we were unsure what time he will got up again, we left him at home and went to Empire to get him the toy he wanted. He woke up just as we reached home. We waited until he had his meal before surprising him with the gift. Faaz's reaction? He grinned happily upon seeing the Toy's R Us plastic bag and when Fadzil showed him the train immediately he said, "WOW!".. :)

Faaz was being 'lectured' by Daddy.

Hihi, sebenarnya time ni daddy tengah explained, tak bolehla everytime nak makan ubat kena bribe dengan toys. This was wrong. Faaz is a big boy now, kena la be brave bila makan ubat, ye sayang...

Happy now that his Wilson sudah ade teman...



Alhamdulillah, lucky us his fever did not prolong. By midnight, the temperature went back to normal. However, there still a problem. Faaz eat very, very less nowadays and it really worries me. :( He only took 1 meal daily and stick to the milk all the time. He even refused to eat all his favourite food. Anyone care to give me tips on this? Should I consult the Dr. immediately??

Rasenye Faaz hilang selera makan maybe sb baru baik demam kut..
But as long he still take milk and 1 time meal..shud be no problem..
InsyaAllah by next week, maybe selera makan dia dah ok..

Nadia,

Bagusnya Adam, senang mommy dia :)Faaz used to be like that tp dh besar ni..huhu. You know, I told my mom over the phone betapa susahnya nak bagi Faaz ubat skang (dgn harapan dpt simpati..). You know ape dia kata? she said that exactly what my parents gone through last time with me. Hihi, pastu br teringat, I mmg takut makan ubat, dari kecik sampaaaai la skang :P I guess Faaz ikut I nmpknye..huhu.

Oh ye ke, tp at least dia mkn kn. Faaz ade hari 1 meal tu pun x habis you. I betul2 risau. Dah bawa dia jumpa Dr. balik..rupa2nya dia kena oral trush, padanla dia xde selera makan. sian dia...

Nadine said...

Izu,

La ye ke. Sian preggy mommy ni. Rajin mkn supplement k, nnti nak pegi London, sejukkan. I hope u recover fast dear.

Oic, mudah2an Faaz ikutla mcm Zahin. Jangan dia ikut cam I sudah, sampai dh tua pun takut lagi. Kuang Kuang Kuang.

Hihi, Faaz mmg giler Chuggington Izu. Thomas dia x suka. Thanks Izu, Faaz dh baik demam. Cuma ade oral thrush kt lidah tu yg dia takde selera makan. Hopefully all gone in 1-2days time. Amin...

Tula, Nadia pun rindu nak hug badan yg sedap2 tu. Now Faaz dh kurus Izu...pipi je yg x kurus lagi :)

Nadine said...

Irra,

Alahai Dina pun x sihat ye ari tu. Nasib Esya tak kena jugak kan? Kalau dua2 sakit susah jugakkan Irra..

Antibiotics every 2 hours? Kalau kat Faaz mau pengsan I nak kasi dia makan. Susah yg amat. Nasibla haritu I told the Dr., dia bgi antibiotics yg makan sekali sehari for 3days je. Alhamdulillah dia ok..kalau tak jenuh gak kitaorg.

Hehe, bolehnya. Faaz tak kisah. tp Wilson lah (red color). Kalau Brewster dia syg lebih sket sbb baru dpt. sape pegang dia tepis tangan. Hehehe...

Thanks dear, u & family take care too!

faisyura said...

Alaaa demam ye Faaz tapi sporting la Mommy faaz tu, beli chuggington kalo mkn ubat... Best betul...!

Nadia, memang cm tu kot kalo kids demam... Zura plak kan, dah almost 2 bulan susah hati ngn Aariz sebab he refuse to eat anything.. baru lately ni ade la makan sepuluh suap bubur gitu2 jelah.... sib baik berat tetap menten 12kg walopun 2 bulan tanak makan... huhuh susu je kuat..

Aritu doc kate sebab tonsil aariz bengkak tu yg dia sakit nak mkn tu... kalo berterusan 2 3 hari, nadia suh doc check kot tekak faaz merah ke tak... maybe sebab tu dia tanak mkn sgt... so bleh amik antibiotik...

nway get well soon faaz! ;)

kella said...

Nadine, I guess now is "musim" for fever and chicken pox. Hazrat had chicken pox+high fever last 2 weeks and my hubby just recovered from high fever 2 days ago. Bila 2 heroes sakit, mama la yg penat kan? hihihi...Take great care of yourself and your family ya Nadine. Cerdik betul Faaz taknak ubat ye, Hazrat asyik nak ubat je, kadang2 smpi dah overdose, doctor prescribed only 4ml, but he wants 8ml. haishhhh...mcm tu pun susah tau Nadine...hahaha

dyana "his other half" said...

hadif pun baru baik demam. last thursday pege dr deng juga.

hadif since dulu tak berapa suka makan sangat nadia. but at times, dia akan makan banyak2 than for a few days nak habiskan satu meal pun tak boleh. maybe boleh try multivitamin. scotts emulsion faaz tak suka kan.

Thara said...

alhamdulillah, good to hear that both of u have recovered. mmg susah hati kan kalau baby demam. nak-nak lagi kalau mummy dia pon tak sehat. lagi risau! but glad that everything's okay now. :)

hmm. as far as i can recall, u penah ckp kan faaz never had problem with meals? i think it's just one of the stages in a kid's life la babe. i think, memang at one point of time, our baby mmg tanak makan. buatla ape pon, dia tanak makan. mcm aydein dulu, i buat la pasta ke bubur ke ape ke, sume tanak makan. but now, haa amik kau. ape semua bende pon dia nak telan hehe :P

so dont worry. i think its just a temporary thing. as long as he's drinking milk like usual, thats the most important thing. continue making his favorite food, he'll be like his normal self soon! ;)

Nadine said...

Zura,

I terpaksa jd sporting you, dgn harapan lepas tu senang la dia makan ubat. hmmmph...x jalan jugak :P Once a while kalau nasib baik, blehla dia makan ubat without any kerenah..huhu.

Ye ke Zura. Tp bagusla Aariz, x makan pun berat maintain. Faaz altho menyusu jugak tp bila tak makan berat dia turun. Skang dh 700gm berat dia turun. Manala Nadia tak risau :(

Tula Nadia dh bawak pegi jumpa Dr. Apparently dia kena oral thrush Zura. Now tgh dlm recovery process. Padanla dia takmo makan, sian dia..huhu.

Thanks dear!

Nadine said...

Kella,

:) thanks dear. Alhamdulillah, kami dh sihat..cuma saki baki tu ade sket2. You taula batuk n selsema ni kadang2 susahnya nak pegi..harap2 cptla elok. Dh perit tekak ni asik batuk je. Hihi.

Faaz kena oral thrush plak lepas demam. But he's getting better..cuma selera makan belum nk ade. Huhu. Doakan selera dia cpt2 dtg ye Kella..risau I. Thanks..

Nadine said...

Cee D,

Iye ke. Baguslah Hadif skejap je demam dh ok kan. Legaa.. :)
Itula ingat nnti bila dia punye oral thrush tu dh fully gone nak tgk mcm mana dia punye selera datang balik ke tak. Kalau tak mmg bawak semula jumpa Dr.Deng kot. Mintak advice dia on multivitamin. Nak bg vit C pun susah anak teruna I tu, dia ingat tu pill ubat, dia takmo T_T

Nadine said...

Huspa,

Ala ye ke. Siannya. Alhamdulillah la campak dia xlama, harap x teruk sgt. Iye ke, bagusnya Hazrat ni. Aunty ciom sket. Good boy! Senang mama nak bagi ubat. In fact, terlebih senang ye Huspa. Hehehe..tp bagusla kalau dia sampai besar pun mcm tu. Senang nak bg multivitamin nnti :)

Nadine said...

Thara,

Alhamdulillah...tula, kalau anak demam kita risau. Tp kalau dgn kita2 demam lagi la risau. Sian kat En. Suami :)

Maybe la Thara. Tp kalau berat dia maintain I tak risau sgt. Berat dia turun mendadak you..from 11.2kg to 10.5 je now. Kalau mandikan dia..haaai, dh nmpk tulang dh. Manalah I tak risau/sedih kan. Tp baru2 ni pegi check up. Apparently dia kena oral thrush dkt lidah. Dr. said because of that selera dia hilang. Skang tinggal lagi sket. I hope he will be fully recovered in 1-2days to come.

tula, I mmg suh dia minum susu more than the usual he consumed. Risau dia tk cukup nutrient..huhu
