Cough Cough Go Away

Shannon is down with fever and cough since Sunday evening. I think she must have caught a cold (chinese called kum dio) after I bathed her at 3:30am on Sunday morning.

We went home and slept at 2am after the gathering at Serene's house and she vomited after coughing at about 3am. I have to bath her as she vomited all over her hair and body. In fact, I even used the hairdryer to thoroughly dried her hair before she went back to sleep. We woke up at 12pm in the morning and proceed to La Coccinelle and she started to get feverish when she woke up from her nap at 6pm. Her fever subsided after taking medicine but her cough persisted.

We didn't let her go to the Creche this 2 days but her fever came back last night at 39.5 degree. Thus daddy booked a PD appt for her in the afternoon. I brought her to the clinic and PD said that her fever was caused by the eruption of her molar tooth. She was given some suppositories, cough medicine and nasal spray. She is not having any fever today but her cough is not getting any better. After getting her to bed at 10pm, she woke up 15 minutes later coughing non stop and end up vomiting out her milk. I cleared up the mess, rubbed Vicks on her chest and back as well as her feet.

She fell asleep 15 mins later but continued coughing in her sleep for about half an hour. I think the suppositories had taken effect as I have not heard her coughing for past 1 hour. Hopefully, her cough will go away soon.
