Fever... Oh NO!!!!

Discovered Isabelle's body felt a bit warmer than usual this evening when I changed her into her pyjamas. Took her temperature and it read 37.7 degrees C. Oh boy... that reading brings back the nightmare of her fever/croup episode. Phobia.

We debated a while if we should give her paracetamol. In the end, to be safe, we did. Right after the paracetamol, we tuck her into bed and within 5 minutes, she was fast asleep. Not sure if it was due to her tiredness or due to the fever. But sleep is good for any day, anytime.

Hopefully later when I check her temperature again or tomorrow morning, the fever has subsided. I should also get ready to hit the sack early tonight as I might most probably need to get myself recharged sufficiently for a long day tomorrow.

Good night and pleasant dreams!

Hmm.. for us 37.5 we're still OK, just wipe Ben's body with damp cloth, make him cool down, wear airy clothes.

Above that reading we will give paracetamol, then next 4 hours check again, if subside, then no need to repeat medicine. If still high, repeat medicine and sponge bath.

Hope Isabelle gets well soon! Just keep telling yourself fever is good, its a sign her body is working to fight off viruses ok?

Take care and God bless!
