High fever

Kai was his usual sunnyself this morning, crawling all over the house and terrorising the cats. But after he woke up from his morning nap, he cried and so I carried him over to our bed for a cuddle. I only realised that he fell asleep in my arms after Terence came back from the driving range. It was then that I noticed he was very hot, even his tiny feet.

Took his temperature, and it was 39.4 degree celsius. We gave him paracetamol (1.5ml), and had to sponge him down. He screamed his head off.

His fever now comes on and off. He's sleeping again.

Poor baby. Probably caught the virus from Terence.

(Picture was taken before we realised he was sick.)

His fever still comes on and off. This morning it was a high of 39.3. Had to sponge him again. Poor thing.

Anyway, I didn't realise the position is good for regulating his body. Guess you would know how it's like too!

Sigh.

it's actually better if you're both not wearing tops - google "kangaroo care".
