It Went Higher

Last Saturday, my eldest daughter asked me if she can swim in the nearby clubhouse. I said yes since I know that she missed swimming a lot. It was already 6 in the evening that she finished; they just dropped by at 7/11 to eat some snacks and went home. I guess she went home at around 7 in the evening. She was okay the next day but she’s starting not to get okay at Tuesday, she said she had a slight fever. I had to work at that time and thought that she will be okay since I told her to take some medicines. I was worried when I went out to work; I was worried for both of my kids so I sent a message to my niece and told her to let Faith sleep with her since Mj was not feeling well.

I sent them text message from work at 11 in the evening and Mj sent me a picture of the temperature of her fever, it was 39.8. I told one of my nieces to put a cold compress so to cool her down, I was then informed that they already did it and her fever went down a little. I told Mj then that we need to go to her Pedia once I get home. Good thing that we were dismissed early at work so I was able to get home a little bit early than usual.

She was still sick when I got home, so I told her to be ready for a checkup. It was a right timing because the clinic was not that busy, we were done in just an hour or two. The diagnosed was a tonsillitis that is why she chilled last night resulting to high fever. We thought since she already took some medicines, her fever won’t get back but I was wrong because around 2 in the afternoon, she became uneasy again, when I touched her forehead she was dreading hot, around 3 in the afternoon, her fever went higher to 39.9, I decided then not to go to work, I need her to be okay plus she asked me if I can stay at home. So I informed our supervisor, I also called our workforce hotline to get the reference number for my absence. Good thing our supervisor understands, I was still spared for my absence and thank GOD that my daughter is healed now.
