One Superhero Down!!

Owhhh, yesterday was not a good day. My eldest Q was down with fever with a 39 degree celsius temperature. He was feeling really lethargic and had no appetite, not even for drinking water! That is soooooo unlike him. In normal situation, he would never sleep or nap during the day. Yesterday when he reached home from school around half past three, he slumped down on the mat with a cushion for his head and closed his eyes. His body ran hot, and he refused to take a shower (which NEVER happened before). When finally he agreed to jump into the shower, he wanted warm water (which NEVER happened also). I was worried sick because when he is unwell, normally he would still have the energy and some appetite for food.

Brought him to Klinik Menara pronto. I was afraid of Dengue. I had to monitor his temperature and was to sponge him from time to time back home to keep the temperature down. Paracetamol every 4 hours too. Gave him 100+ and also boiled barley water. Poor him when nighttime, he had frequent trips to the toilet. Upset tummy and purging. Gave him some meds for that and also massaged some 'minyak cap kapak' on his tummy. As for today, his temperature has gone down but he still had to go to the toilet several times still. Good thing that he did have some food today, that kind of eased a bit of my worries.

I don't think he will be going to school tomorrow. Let him rest at home for another day. Hopefully, he will recover fully by then.
