Down with fever and now he lost his appetite..

Faheem the little explorer was down with fever last week. The babysitter texted me around 3pm saying that he had a sudden raise of temperature. Thank god I already stocked up his latest cold and flu medications before heading for Langkawi 2 months ago. I told the babysitter to feed him Progesic first and keep me updated of his temperature.

We rushed home after the office hours and he was 38.3 degree Celsius by then! Realizing that we didn't have any antibiotics at home, we get ourselves cleaned and took him to the clinic. The GP was quit shocked knowing that his temperature had spiked up to 39.8 Celsius! The highest ever he has ever caught. Voltaren was inserted right after the doctor was done with the Influenza screening swab..

Faheem wasn't cranky that much but he was indeed so weak and restless. My poor little boy.. =( After 15mins, we were so relieved when the doctor informed us that the Influenza test was negative. Alhamdulillah. Faheem slept soundly when we reached home..

His temperature fluctuates for 3 days. On the 4th day he was totally recovered from fever but I noticed some reddish dots (like a rash) on his forehead. I became panicked again for the second time in a week. It is measles?! We went to the same GP on that early morning and it turned out a post viral symptom. No treatment or medication is needed as it may vanish in a few days time. Syukran!

But then here comes another head ache. Faheem has lost his appetite ever since he was down with high fever until now. We've tried everything from bananas to tau-fu-faa to papaya to oat biscuits to mashed potatoes to pastries and even junk foods! Slash the everyday entrée of blended porridge, it's a big NO! He drinks his milk but not as much as before but he consumes a lot of plain water with his favorite sippy cup. I tried adding some honey in his plan water but he totally hates it. He refused heavy meals for almost a week and dear Faheem looks a bit thin and scraggy now! =(

Susahnya hati mama Faheem.. Though he has turned out a super-active toddler right after he's recovering from fever but your body needs nutrients my boy. Haih.. Esok kita try bubur nasi dengan chicken soup pulak nak! Not the ordinary chicken soup tu tau, but the one yang mama makan dengan papa selame ni k. Smooches!

  3. ihsan mmg jenis susah nk mkn. everyday waktu makan mmg mama memerlukan komitmen yg sgt tinggi. bila xsihat lg la xnak makan. jenuh beli n hulur macam2. last2 yg dia nak cuma apa tau? yogurt, keropok ikan n tok dia punya biskut. biskut hup seng 4 segi tu ha. wah ni mmg jimat ni kihkih. dia ngap2 sampai xmuat mulut. berselera sungguh. honestly aku dh xlarat risau. asalkan dia makan aku dah bersyukur. skrg ni besides regular meals wajib everyday aku bg dia vitamin, fresh milk, breast milk n in between nutritious tidbits. nk kena take note only foods apa dia accept especially bila dia xsihat or simply xnak makan.

  7. ihsan dh setahun 5 bln. haah nmpk meninggi je. selama ni pn kalau ikut graf ihsan mmg kecik tp normal la hihi. tp aku tgk rata2 n from my reading pn common budak2 baya ihsan xbape nk makan. active plak. tambah2 blk msia ni dh bape kali dia demam la apa la. so mana la xsusut. as long as dia still makan even 1 or 2 bites n xtinggal susu itu dh ok. faheem xlalu sbb xsihat la tu. kdg2 mcm ihsan angin dia berubah2. so aku cuba ubah cara mkn or jns mknan. skrg ni smbil suap aku bg pinggan utk dia mkn sndiri jugak. mmg bersepah la tp dia mcm suka je.
