We brought Ethan to the clinic in the evening as it is already the 4th day of fever and the paed just gave Nurofen to control his fever. Unfortunately his fever did not subside and by midnight it was as high as 40.4C!
We panicked and quickly brought him to the ER at that is situated about 10 minutes drive away from our house to test for dengue.
Little Ayden tried to cheer the obviously unwell big brother Ethan.
He managed to put a smile on Ethan’s face :)
Mission accomplished :D <3
Ayden even accompanied Ethan during check-up.
But I took Ayden away when they wheeled Ethan in to take his blood. I brought Ayden to the hospital playground while Darling accompanied Ethan. Poor Ethan cried so loud when his blood was taken as the nurse could not draw blood out from his hand. She poked and poked yet no blood comes out that she had to call for the doctor’s help. By then Ethan was so traumatised that he screamed his lungs out due to the pain :(
This was Ayden, bored to the bones while waiting for the entire ordeal to be over. We went home after they managed to get Ethan’s blood sample. I tucked the boys to sleep while Darling drove back to the hospital at 1am to collect the test result.
Thank goodness it was NEGATIVE! Ethan is not down with dengue. Such a relief. Now, we will need to control that fever of his. He should be as good as new by the end of the week.
