Gwen is sick since last week. I thought that she’s now teething due low grade fever last Tuesday and Wednesday. But when I noticed that she’s having difficulty breathing at night, we decided to take her to the doctor. She has cough and colds, and she was prescribed Nasatapp for the colds, Loviscol for cough and Amoxil as antibiotic. It was heartbreaking to see your baby hurting, now I can also say what other parents feel, I wish I can just take away her sickness in an instant.
Doctor said that she should be okay in 2 or 3 days but it’s now Tuesday and she still has stuffy nose especially at night. To make it worse, due to her stuffy nose, she can’t nurse from me. And she consumes a reduced amount of formula milk too… We tried dropping Salinase but I guess the effect is only short-lived.
Sickness in the family is really bad news, and I hope Gwen who is still fragile won’t be sick again anytime soon. It’s also an unwelcome expenses for our family budget, we could have used money for samsung lcd televisions we’ve been saving for. But it can wait, as long as baby will be fine.
