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.

Faith Got Sick!

It was last Wednesday that she complained of having a toothache the moment she went out from Kumon. I bought Paracetamol for preparation but then the toothache was already gone yet she still has a fever. Sister Merlyn noticed she is having runny nose, so we sent her to her Pedia, she was prescribed of some medicine yet her fever is still on and off. I sent her back to her Pedia on Tuesday, we were required to have a laboratory test and after an hour, we handed the result to her Doctor. He informed me then that Faith is having a UTI infection. That could be the reason why her fever did not go away. Right after she took her anti-biotic, she gained her strength and the fever was slowly gone.

Faith got sick for almost a week and I was so worried. I’m afraid it could be something else that is more dangerous. And good thing it was not, it was still an infection I know but at least we don’t have to send her to the hospital for admission. When I found out that Faith got a UTI infection, I tried to recall what could have been the cause, the only thing I had in mind was the junk foods when we were celebrating our Fiesta. Thus, I told her not to eat any chips at all, she answered me back right away “Mom who bought the chips again?” I realized it was me, so I guess no buying at all, lol.

I almost got admitted last Friday but since there was no room available they advised me not to. Besides, my condition is not that worst, I had a UTI that is the reason I chilled. My eldest daughter was with me the whole time she was the one who took good care of me while I was in the Emergency Room, yes I went to Emergency Room right away after my shift because I was worried about my blood pressure, but all is normal, it subside after I rested. When I was lying down at the ER, Mj was the one who bought me food, who feeds me, who asked the nurse of my condition, who made a follow up of the result and who bought me my medicine. I am so thankful that my eldest daughter, just arrived from school, took the full duty of being a nurse for me the whole day in the hospital and not only that she was even the one who took good care of me at home. When we arrived home, I went to the bedroom immediately and slept, Mj was the one monitoring my temperature every now and then, she got worried when my temperature went up to 38 again, she asked my sister Merlyn to cook dinner real fast so I can eat and I can take the antibiotic that was given to me for my UTI.

When I was done eating my dinner, she gave me my medicine right away and lay me down to rest. She keeps on putting a temperature and was relieved when my fever went down. My head is still heavy though but its manageable now unlike before. Mj was the one keeps on reminding me of my medicine and the  one who always asked me if I am okay. I am already okay and getting better now it is because of my daughter. It is good to have a daughter like my daughter who never left me during the times that I am not better.
