Blair was having high fever for four days. I think I was the one who passed the virus to her as I was having flu for few days before also.
So Blair started off with high fever between 38-40 degree Celsius. Up and down over the few days from Tuesday to Friday.
We brought her to children clinic after a day feeding her paracetamol syrup. Her fever has not disappear after 24 hrs.
At children clinic, doctor has no clue what will the illness be. So he was checking the 3 illness that are life threatening – meningitis (脑膜炎), UTI (尿道发炎) and pneumonia (肺炎).
While doing urine test, she is required to urinate. amazingly, she urinate within 5 mins time. Even hongkiat cant believe she can do that.
She was not infected for the mentioned 3 illness. Doctor ask us not to worry. Doctor said she was attacked by virus but did not say what virus. He said the fever will disappear within 5 days. We will just have to monitor.
The high fever really went away by Friday. But we noticed red spots on her body. I quickly go google about this. Found out a illness called roseola.
The symptoms mentioned are totally same like Blair, having high fever and red spots.
It was not something serious. It’s a common sick for baby at her age.
Moreover, she behaves normal. As active as she always did.
Blair always have something to impress me.
Like today, she is having slight fever. We want her to drink the medicine, she refused at first, but after we talk to her that she is sick and have to drink medicine to recover, she seems to understand. She happily finished the medicine and a glass of water.
I am impressed by the attitude that she is having. She is only a 21 months old toddler. She can understand us and willing to cooperate. This is not a rare case, she really understand us and seldom give us difficult time. Never wanted something and don’t want to give in. She always cooperate and listen to us.
My good girl. Mommy loves you!
Updated: Another impressive question she asked when Hongkiat is trying to take her temperature with ear thermometer, “papa, which ear do you want?”
This is something definitely new as we did not teach. I am amazed by how fast she can developed by relating everything.
I have mixed feelings.
I don’t remember I attended any nursery or playgroups (that’s what they call in Singapore) before kindergarden.
I even attended kindergarden when I was 6 years old. Attended 1 year before I went primary. That’s how short my pre-school life.
Nowadays, parents will put their kids to nursery and playgroups. The toddlers are as young as 18 months old.
Part of me agree that they should start young, so they learn as much as they can, as they can absorb and learn fast at this age.
Another part of me thinking that its so cruel that they need to blend into this competitive world at this young age. If they learn slower, they will have bigger learning curve later, they might have hard time catching up.
I’ve just registered Blair to a 2 hour daily (Mon-Fri) playgroup. I think 2 hour is reasonable. She can mix around with more people besides the family members, she can develop better social skills, she could learn a lot more than what we taught her, in a proper way.
My baby girl is going to class soon, as soon as next year! How time flies so fast?
Feel so lost when I don’t know what to do. Don’t know how to start.
Don’t even know what to ask. Posted questions to the analyst but no answer even after 1 week. My questions are too stupid? Or I asked the incorrect questions?
Feel so unproductive. Sien.
Shit, not in the mood of working now. Keep thinking about my upcoming trips!
I couldn’t believe I have not exchange any money for the coming trip, which we are flying tomorrow!
I have not finish packing. Will need to review the itinerary again.
Tonight will have a lot to do! But I am excited, although I’ve been there for few times already. Because I am going with all the people I love.
