Get Well Aidan

We're currently in the UK for our winter break. we enjoyed the boxing day sale but unfortunately we're down with some kind of bug. Hardy was down first, and then i was down almost the whole day, and then it hit Aidan.

It is seriously worrying to see your son down. he's having fever, temp of 39.5c, very chesty cough, running nose and diarrhea. extremely clingy, he wants Hardy most of the time, no appetite and whines a lot. very unlike him. i suspect this could be his last stage of teething, or it could be simply the winter bug. he now sleeps on the bed with us, hopefully it'll help. but despite feeling sick, he can still laugh and play. but still.... we are worried, i am still worried sick. this is actually the first time he'd ever been sick like this.

We brought him to Warwick Hospital's A&E last night as his tempreture went up again and got him some new meds. no infection, just a virus, hopefully, he'll get better very very soon, before our journey back to NL.

I have been worrying and crying and not to mention had very little sleep. and at times like this, it made me realize more that money is not everything, health is. and at times like this, your partner needs to be as strong and calm if not, even stronger and calmer. at times like this, you really need to pull yourslf together, for the sake of the child. at times like this, nothing is more important, no sale is worth going, no place you'd rather be than to be with your son.

Get well soon Aidan. i love you very very much.

Kak Zaza,
Poor Aidan.Hope he is getting better by now. Having your own child sick right in front of a mum eyes, who can stand that? He can still play even though he is not well, that is a good sign.
Keep yourself well, and I pray that Aidan will get better soon. That is the least I can do.

Zaza,
Hope Aidan gets well soon... Emma was down with the same virus since Christmas Eve and the fever finally broke yesterday...
Don't worry so much Zaza... Enjoy your holiday.

Oh, it is really worrying when a child get sick. Keep monitoring him and yes, out in the cold wintry season of sales is not recommended.

You take care too

Get well soon Aidan. My youngest son was also very sick down with diarrhoea, had to take him to A&E in the middle of night.

Salina said...

Insyallah he will get well soon. Doa ibu tu kan mustajab zaza! It's a phase that many children have to go through but the most difficult part in treating toddlers like Aidan is that they couldn't express in words what they are actually going through. I have utmost respect for paediatricians because their discipline is one of the most challenging in the medical field.

My prayer for little aidan!

Hi za!
Hope aidan will recover soon. Don't worry too much k? Just make him feel happy n comfy. When u worry too much, he can feel it and he will become more upset. It's all part of growing up for him to build up his antibodies. Mean while u n hardy have to take care of yourselves too coz aidan needs both of you to be better...... Take care little sis. All our love, hugs, kisses filled with anti virus for the three of u to get better. And not forgetting happy new year 2008!
Love you,
Kak Shasha

Hey Z ... By the time you read this, I hope Aidan is fully recovered and back to his cheery and chirpy self. Being sick is not fun for an adult, much less a toddler. You are a strong gal with both feet firmly planted on the ground, Z and there is so much love in the family. You will always get by life's occassional humps. :)

Take it easy, dear. Warmest Hugs!
Talk to you in the New Year.

hi za! don't worry too much k, si comel aidan's tough, surely recover soon and get over the bug, insya'allah. the first usually is pretty scary, but it's part of him growing up. once he’s bigger, school going age, he'll be immune to them so to speak. be ready with the meds and get doc's advice so you'll know what to do and of course doa bnyk2, these will help you feel a bit in control. hope that helps. you too, get some rest. nevertheless, happy new year wishes to you & family, may it brings plentiful of cheer, luck and love to your families. --yaya
