Fever And Sore Throat ( Momimhar posted on June 23rd, 2014 )

It’s always a wonderful week for us.  Last week my mother-in-law came over for a visit for two days.  Then she went to see her other son and daughter-in-law after spending a couple of days with us.  Gladly my darling daughter was feeling well already.  She got sick-had sore throat and ran a fever two weeks ago.

It started Saturday morning.  I usually fall asleep with her in her bedroom.  That morning when I wrapped my arm around DD she was very hot.  Her temperature was very high.  So I took the thermometer and checked her temperature.  Sure she’s running a fever.  When she finally woke up, she was irritable, fussy, and complaining about her throat.  I gave her something to eat and drink for breakfast but she didn’t eat much.  She was only sipping the milk.  DD was complaining that she’s having a headache.  I gave her fever reducer and pain reliever medicine once every six hours for two days.  The medicine helped her feel better.  The fever is gone in two days.

I was very worried because she wasn’t eating very well.  So I checked her mouth and saw some irritation in her throat.  Immediately, first thing in the morning, I called her pediatrician for an appointment on Monday afternoon.  Then we saw DD’s pediatrician Monday afternoon.  The doctor said that the irritation/redness in the throat was caused by a virus.  Oh dear!  Where did DD got that?  The pedia said it’s in the air and can be from someone in public places like play areas.  The pediatrician gave me an instruction on how to treat DD’s irritated throat.  After a week, it became better and better.

I am very thankful and happy that DD is well now.  Her appetite is back and very playful.  Gladly we were able to go see Na-na, uncle G, and aunt D for a swimming party this weekend.

  6. So glad your little one is feeling much better – sore throats are no fun, especially in this season. I couldn’t imagine feeling sick in hot and muggy weather.

  7. Sadly viruses are around everywhere and there really isn’t much we can do to avoid them. Just need to get those antibodies up and babies well protected. Glad to hear she’s doing better!

    It’s always so scary when they get a fever. No matter how many times it has happened before, it’s always worrisome. I’m glad she’s feeling better.
