Sherilyn Has Never Been This Sick

…..and this time, it is quite bad. Today is the 3rd day of her high fever and the temperature shot up to 40 degrees Celsius last night and today, despite being on Augmentin, a nose allergy syrup, PCM syrup and a syrup for her swollen throat. Daddy has been really worried and has been calling back to check on her a few times in a day. He has also been sleeping in with Sherilyn for the past 3 nights. Last night, he woke me up to ask me to insert a suppository into her rectum when her temperature shot up to 40 degrees Celsius. He also sponged her the whole night and left a pail with water in the room. Each time the temp shot up, Sherilyn would shiver in cold but thank God she didn’t throw up, unlike Alycia who would puke each time she has high fever.

This pic was taken yesterday during dinner. Sherilyn who was eating dozed off at the dining table. Her temp was really high but she wanted to eat the fried noodles that I cooked, so I gave her some.  All she managed to eat was a few spoonfuls and then she kept telling me that she felt cold…. and she only wanted my shawl, so I wrapped it round her shoulders.  Her body was burning with heat, though she felt as if she was placed in a freezer and her teeth were clattering away.  I kept sponging her body and put a wet hanky on her head.  The bowl of noodles went to the bin after a few spoonfuls and she also took a few small bites of a butter bun and a few mouthfuls of loh hon koa herbal drink that I boiled.
