De-Stress Me, Please

Baby has been sick for almost 2 weeks. It started with a simple fever and tonsils inflammation. Actually, she got the germs from me. I was sick during Chinese New Year. Doctor gave a set of antiobiotics. It did not work. Another bottle given. Eaten. No change.

Blood test taken. Results were normal. Thank God.

She rested for a few days in the house. Went back to school on Friday. Did not want her to miss out in school. Everything went well . Brought her to see an ENT consultant because the fever may be from her sinus, as told by her paediatrician. It turned out that her sinus was fine.

OK. Noting to be alarmed about as her fever was very very mild. This afternoon, I took her temperature again and it showed slight fever. Called the clinic. Her doctor asked me to bring her in for a chest x ray, urine test and a complete blood profile. Battling the heavy downpour this evening and the massive traffic jam, I managed to get to the hospital in 30 minutes.

Nothing firm has been diagnosed yet as her urine and xray results were promising. Now comes the full blood profile which by tomorrow noon, I will be able to know the results. These 2 weeks had been very physically and mentally exhausting. I wished my burden could be lightened.

I am a mother and a father. All decisions lay on me. All burden lay on me. All responsibilities lay on me. All welfare also lay on me. Needless to say, all expenses also lay on me.


CHeeeers !

    Anyway woman, had a thought about this.

    I really think you are doing fine! Heck! We are all doing fine!

    Look at our kids, we must be doing something right! Correct or not?

    I would say, you just trust your own instinct when it comes to your life and bringing up your baby (oh, this advise is for targetted at myself as well).

    Ps. No one can tell you what's wrong and right. Get what I mean? *wink*
