I haven’t been around the blogging world last week. I was plagued by cough and colds and also fever. It was during the Superbowl weekend when it all started. Saturday night after our church service, I wasn’t feeling so well, and so we stopped by CVS before heading home and bought a chest decongestant . I was coughing the whole night and developed the fever. The next morning, my husband prepared a concoction of fresh lemon juice (taken from our backyard) and honey. My condition became better after taking some more medicines and was able to enjoy an afternoon at a friend’s house where we watched the game together. I did water therapy which means I drank lots of juices and fluids. the photos below were my best friends for a few days.
It is sad though that the next day, my daughter also came up with a fever. It is a good thing we were able to get her an insurance before all these happened. Initially, we applied for family insurance (Medi-Cal) but apparently, after assessment of my husband’s gross income we were not approved as family, instead, my daughter was the only one granted free insurance. If only it were the same as for auto insurance, wherein you could get quotes from different insurers and sometimes for free, then it might have been easier to obtain AARP and a better budget for the family.
The picture above was taken at the ER of San Jose Regional Medical Center where we took our little princess on Tuesday morning when her temperature reached 105. She was administered with Tylenol (Acetaminophen) and while we waited for her fever to go down, she was also given a popsicle to cool off. We were released after almost two hours of observation.
Later that night, we already have a smiling little girl who is back in her old wacky mode, all fever’s gone! I know that as a mom, you can relate with my worry when your child is sick or is feeling something and you can also guess how comforting it is to see her smiling back at you again.
