These 2 weeks I’ve been dealing with 2 sick kids. Ian got fever, cough and running nose first. His started last Wed, fever came and went off, repeatedly till Sunday, until now still having some cough.
Isabel’s started since Saturday, fever came and went off till Wed - exactly the same pattern like Ian. Her cough is worse and she refused to eat due to phlegm. As our doctor is on vacation till next week, we had no choice but to see another doc, a paediatrician.
This doctor is new to us. He seems very good. Carefully examined Isabel and told us she has lots of phlegm in the lungs and need nebulizer (inhaling some kind of gas).
I remember the trauma Ian had, the last time we gave him nebulizer. Was quite worried for Isabel, but it turned out she was completely okay. I asked her to breath in and out, she thought it was fun and ‘played’ with it. And she was curious about the room and the toys, so the process was quite a pleasant one.
