Here is a recount of Rachel's viral infection updates for the past week: ~
12 March: Her teacher called to inform Rachel's having a temp of 37.6. I went over to pick her up.
430pm ~ Gave her paracetomol & she went to sleep. Temp shot up to 38.2 in the evening. Another dose of paracetomol.
13 March: At 130am, I took her temp & it was 39.1. Panic! Immediate sponging from 2am ~ 4am. Yes, I sponged her for 2 whole hours.
In the morning, I took her to the doctor. Doctor prescribe some antibiotic & cough syrup. Temp @ 38.6. Only 2 feedings of medicine & Rachel began throwing up everything, including her lunch. Nothing can stay in her stomach. Not even water. What goes in comes out almost immediately. Brought her back to the doctor in the evening & was prescribed more medicine, suspected case of intestinal infection. Was told to stop giving her the antibiotics. Temp range at 38 ~ 38.6 thru out the day & night.
14 March: More puking. Lost of appetite. Pale face. Sunken eyes. Tires easily. Slept thru out the day. Temp still @ 38.7, taken at 1030pm. Sponging continued.
