But One Is Still Down!

Khadra was still charting 38.5C to 39.9C after three days of fever. She was already on an antibiotic course since Sunday afternoon and was confirmed to have an enlarged tonsil. Sangat besar, I could see it protruding from the sides even without her sticking her tongue out. She was also not eating well, in fact we hardly got her to eat anything since Friday, so that was a concern. The last straw was her vomitting (yet again) with traces of blood in it. So we took her to the Emergency Department of Pantai Medical Centre at about midnight.
Since her tonsil was so enlarged coupled with the reasons above, the attending doctor advised us to admit her for an intra-venous antibiotics. He had to draw some blood for denggue testing anyways and he assured us she'll feel better quicker after a day or two in the hospital. And the drama? Forget about it.. As soon as she heard she was gonna be poked, she wailed and wailed and wailed when the needle was nowhere near her yet. They had to bundle her up in a blanket so that she did not move and I was by her side, asking her to focus on me instead. Khaleeq was also offering advice ; "Er.. Khadra, I get sick too.. "After a while, she calmed down and let the good doctor poke her hand. When I told her that we were staying in that night, her first response was, "But they don't have kids' channel here.." As soon as I assured her that they had Disney Channel in the room, she looked calmer.

So, here I am now with my Khadra..
We got a single room in the peadiatric ward, where the kid got a bed and the parent sleeping over also got a bed. (Cool huh?) There's also wireless connection in the wards. I went back to get all the stuff we needed for a sleepover and send Khaleeq back home. Brought her favourite (Sleepy) Doodle Bear (it is actually Kira's, but she loves it so!), Khaleeq kirim her his Bumblebee to take care of his sister while he's not around (so sweet) and bajus, toilettries for me and her. By the time I got back, it was already 2:30am. Hubster was flat on the other bed (Kesian dia, this is the ending to his Father's Day this year).

Anyways, upon admission, Khadra was still charting 39.9C and a suppository inserted up her a$$. At about 4am, her fever has gone down somewhat and she was just given the oral suspension. Early morning, Dr Azam came in to check up on her. He recommended the nebulizer for the shortness of breath and said that we may have to think about removing her tonsils for good. (Not immediately, lah..) She took one egg sandwich and a few sips of Milo for brekkie - good progress. She's looking much better, and the fever has noticably subsided. She's enjoying her Disney channel (it is on 24x7) and the only drama we had was during the nebulizer stuff. Things are looking up, I really do hope she has a speedy recovery.

i had my tonsils removed at the age of 16, and i've had enlarged tonsils even when i'm not sick - since really2 young, maybe khadra's age... maybe earlier...

but yeah, i haven't had much fever since then, and the best thing is, i get to eat as much ice cream as i want after the surgery - to heal faster!

i still practise that when i have sore throat now you know... hehehe...

noordinarymomster said...

Kak Dilla
You might not remember me, never mind just wanna share, my son(5 years old that time lah) once had similar problem and suggested by Doc to remove his tonsils, so me and hubby sit down n have discusion on it. We received very informative feedback from my son principal the pro and cons for not removing it...we seek for chinese herbs(recomended by the principal) really control his diet n I think he is lot better now..

alamak, supergirl tak sihat... kesian mommy dia just as much as kesian dia. ps: i kicked a doctor yg nak kasi injection dulu (so i was told, but my parents could be lying), so wailing tak lah drama enough, hehe ;)

dillazag said...

hey there mummy crocs,
appreciate the information. thanks very much. we'll definitely try to manage what she's eating first before jumping to surgery. :)

dillazag said...
