It's a rainy day today and the weather was really cool and nice. But somehow, I just feel really gloomy as Big FAN, Small FAN & Baby FAN all caught the nasty flu bug from SMALL FAN. So, all three of them was coughing away. Small FAN seems to be getting better after taking his 3rd course of antibiotic although he still has a lot of phelgm (but at least he is able to sleep thru the night).
Baby FAN caught the flu really bad, was coughing and sneezing these 2 nights and she is refusing to drink milk as everytime she drink, her nose got block and she started choking and coughing....Poor girl, she is already so small (only 6.5 kg), now with this nasty flu, she is going to be even smaller. Yesterday, after a few attempt to breast feed her at night, I got really desperate, wake up at 5am and started to take out the the pump breast milk from the refrigerator, warm it up and feed her spoon by spoon. I think she managed to take 1 oz and started coughing again and refuse to drink anymore...sigh...Maybe like what my sis always say, I have to start praying for her to recover faster ;(
Brought her to a Doc on Monday and she was given 4 medicines, 1 for running nose & cough, 1 for lung protection, 1 for phelgm and 1 for fever. Poor girl, I need to force her to drink the medicine as she clamp her mouth shut. After the med, she got so tire that she just doze off while sitting on her walker. I wonder if the med is too strong for her...poor thing. 'm suppose to bring her down to the doc today as doc advise that she should be on the nebuliser if she is still coughing today. But I'm a little hesitate to put her thru such suffering, she is only 6 months old. I'm now hoping for the miracle of my breast milk to cure her....
have u tried to feed her using the syringe?
personally, i think the nebuliser is better then letting her take the medicine. alex is also suffering from running nose and a bit bit of cough... no fever yet. have been giving him his medicine so often that nowadays when i carry him on my lap he'll start to cry thinking that i am giving him his medicine. makes me so sad cos he seems to be rejecting me! sometimes when he drinks his milk, he'll start coughing and then he'll vomit out the milk.
Sigh...brought my Baby FAN to see the Doc again as she is still coughing quite badly, yesterday, have to carry her in my arm and sleep on the sofa as the phelgm keeps blocking her nose if she lie down...sigh...
So Doc gave her antibiotic, say 5 days already, better treat the virus.
oh dear... maybe u can rub some vick on her chest to help clear the blocked nose?
Gaby is also down with fever today. HAve some problem giving him the fever medicine cos he doesn't like it.
SMALL FAN got so use to eating medicine already, now everytime I say, eat Medicine, he will bring his chair, stand on it (so he can reach the table) and just open his mouth one by one. He can even tell me which med is nice, which is not.
