Nightmare...again..

Not a good day for me because Ryan was sick again last Saturday..This time , he was having throat infection + fever Again(exactly same last 2 weeks ago's sickness).
What happened is last saturday I still sent him to school as he did not show any sickness symptons in the morning, no calls from teacher for the whole morning...only when I fetched him around noon time, I could sense Something has happened to Ryan again as he looks weak and no mood. He did not even touched the food I prepared for him and no smile on his face when he saw me at school(which is not his usual act).
Faster rush back home and BINGO...he has no appetite to eat for lunch..only few scoops of noodles and a bowl of barley water. Fed him fever + antibiotic(which he is supposed to have it ...an advice from doc to finish the whole bottle of antibiotic). That Saturday, Ryan has a quick nap. He woke up around 2 pm....still has slight fever, no mood. Then he got back to sleep again....and around 3.40pm...his fever started to shoot up. Not to wait, faster rush him to doctor since the doct clinic is closing at 4.30pm. Just drove out from home less than 3 minutes, Ryan vomitted inside the car....aiyah...has to rush back home to get him changed...Lucky my mil was at home and lastly she accompanied me and Ryan to the clinic. No more vomitting session inside the car...
Doctor was curious to saw Ryan again and asking me what happened to Ryan? I told him..should be throat infection + fever. Doct said ...Ryan's throat is swollen + red and it is bit weird that he will get it as he is still taking the antibiotic. Ryan suggested to let Ryan has an injection for speedy recovery as he got the same sickness within a week time...pretty short duration. And this time, the throat looks more teruk..So ryan was having an injection + suppository as his fever has reached 39 at that point of time. Ryan was having the same medicine as his last 2 weeks ago....and I have to monitor his condition closely...there is possibility to come back for 2nd injection if no recover sign after 24 hours.

At saturday midnight, as expected fever came back on and off....12midnight, I gave him a suppository as fever started to shoot up and followed by fever medicine at 3am. Then he slept till next morning and woke his daddy up at 7.10am. Have his milk and he looked slightly better. The whole sunday morning, he looked fine...we just stayed at home for whole sunday..no outing.
Around 11am...his fever started to come back...slight fever 37.4, faster fed him another dose of fever medicine and Ryan was having porridge for his lunch(glad that he likes porridge suddenly...no rejection and showed good appetite).He can play as normal.....
Only after waking up from his nap....has slight fever,that was around 5pm...another dose of fever medicine, then he looked active and even joined his daddy washing the car at the yard.
During dinner time, he can eat as normal (rice + fish+ vegetable)....and I was monitoring his condition very closely. Have to wake up every hour to monitor his body temperature.

For this whole month, Ryan will be resting well at home ( as per doctor's advices ) for 100 % recovery,before he started his school routine. So it means I will be busier at home for this whole month entertaining Ryan 24/7.

Hope Ryan will get well soon.....!!

Thanks 4 ur kind concern....

Glad he is up and about as active as ever.. last time when kids have fever, my mum told me not to give them any rice based.. just noodles like misua or those macaroni cos rice will bring up the body temperature.. :)

LittleLamb said...

Did u give Ryan supplements? I think his immune is not strong enough. Ask the doc what supplement he recommend.

Sheoh Yan said...

Supplement like Scott Emulsion and Vit C may help, beside make him drink more fluid daily. Be it vitagen, ribena, honey, chinese herbal tea or water. As long as he takes in more fluid will help.

MeRy said...

Claire : Thanks for the info...Today,ryan has gets better.

Littlelamb : I gave Scotts emulsion for daily.
The weird part is he is still under antibiotic and then he kena attack same virus again. Probably is from me becoz I was down with bad sore throat last few days.Glad that both of us are recovering now.
Thks for ur concern.

Hope after a good rest he will be back jumping here and there :D

MommyAngel said...

Oh ... I am so sorry to hear that again and poor Ryan! Hope that he'll recover soon! Eat more porridge during this time. Whenever Angel is sick, I would cook porridge for her instead of rice just not to irritate her throat. Get well soon ya!

Get well the soonest dear Ryan...when the kids are having fever, it is such a heartache to us.

It's the tonsillitis or the laryngitis that trugger his fever. I am praying for his speedy recovery. However, it's good to know that he doesnot reject food and drinks. *hugs*

LittleLamb said...

Hmm do ask the doctor. For me, scoot emulsion and appeton is not "POWER" enough. So I am giving supplement from a MLM company. I did ask for Paed advice on certain brand, etc..

NomadicMom said...

Try giving spirulina supplements too. Think it helps to build up immune system.

Mummy Gwen said...

Get well soon, Ryan! So many viruses spreading in his kindy.

Merryn said...

:( poor ryan. Hope he gets well really soon and mommy too, take care ok? hugs..

Alice Law said...

I very sorry to hear Ryan is down again, sure gonna boost his immunity after he has fully recover. Does he take Cod fish oil, it should be helpful to him.

CH Voon said...

Ryan will recover very soon.
One of the things that most of parents scare is children sick.
Anyhow, you need to take care yourself as well.
Most of the woman sick (when getting older) because don’t have a properly rest too.

Hi Mery,
I juz added your blog link :)

It happened to my gal too a month ago. The antibiotic given was not strong enough, I went back to the doctor the next day since the fever didn't subside. Normally the fever will subside after taken Paracetamol, but that time the medicine & suppository could not bring down the fever, stayed at 39.4C. I had to sponge-bath her a few times in the middle of the night.

Later the doctor prescribed her another antibiotic which he claimed is the best, hehe...

juz wonder why he didn't give me the best antibiotic at the very first time, sigh!

Hope Ryan is getting well by now.

Hope Ryan is much better now. It's a good idea to let him fully recover at home for the time being. Mummy must take care too.
