Feverish weekend mood

I had to pick up mini me early (around lunchtime) from kindergarten yesterday as she was feeling poorly and had a high fever. Poor thing, she was crying her heart out when I got there. But she was mostly upset about not being able to attend her friend’s birthday party on Sunday than anything else. It’s strange how kids can have so much energy although having a high fever. If it was me I would be knocked out on the bed for sure! 

So we had a slow rest of the day and evening, trying to make her drink as much fluids as we could, she wasn’t at all interested in eating. When I put her to bed the fever had reach 39,6 degrees and after giving her medicine and reading to her she calmly fell asleep. She woke me up in the middle of the night asking for water and she was burning up, the fever peaking (hopefully) at 40,2 degrees. I didn’t get much sleep after that, laying awake next to her listening to her breathing and her troubled dreams. She was tossing and turning, both crying and talking in her sleep, but the fever finally went down to around 39,8 (after I gave her some more medicine). Now that she’s had breakfast it’s at 38,8 and I’m feeling a bit calmer than I did last night. 

I’m resting next to her, super tired and still in bed even though it’s almost time for lunch. I’ve decided this will be a day of rest and sleeping. Eating and drinking when she needs to, tempting her with her favourite kinds of food and drinks. Fingers crossed she’ll be feeling better soon.

Laters babes!

Over and out
