Fever And Celebration

Today marks our wedding's 4th anniversary. And today is also Isabelle's 2nd real big time fever throughout her 18 months of life. It breaks our heart more to see her sick than not having the chance to celebrate our anniversary as planned.

Isabelle's fever did not subside fully this morning. So we took her to the doctor's clinic. This time, she got it all... fever, cough, flu and sore throat. I was very worried if her condition will worsen and lead to another croup. I am praying for that NOT to happen. But I know fever does some good too besides the little harm to the parents (sleepless nights and endless worries). Building her immunity system and making her a stronger baby.

She was active as usual, maybe just a little bit more mellow. Not extra cranky at all except when she see the medicine coming near her.

DH has to attend a very lengthy quarterly meeting today. He was worried about Isabelle at the same time and feeling guilty that he can't be home to care for her and to help me out. But God knows better. DS is on annual leave and is home. I am not alone and I have a helping hand.

God is good specially at times like this :)

Time to give her some supplements because she is exposed to many things surrounding her now. Remember..she walks now. So dust, dirt, people....

Thank you Jenny! Yes. God is good and we have to remember this all the time :)

Thank you for the advice about supplements. We tried to give her Scotts Emulsion, she dont buy it. Will try out other brands. Meanwhile, we will ensure she gets what she needs from the food she takes in daily. Thank God that she don't get sick often but you are right, at this age, being exposed to more things & people, she needs more POWER :)
