Aidan and his trademark TL look

Hope I don't jinx it again this time by saying that Aidan's fine..

Yesterday, after thinking that he seemed okay with his temp averaging about 38%, I left him with my in-laws and went to the mall to do some X'mas shopping. When I came back, they told me that he was burning hot with a temp of 40% and mil was sponging him a few times to bring his temp down..In the middle of the night, he was still sleeping uneasily, waking up a couple of times and his temp was still high. Woke up with a temp of 41% so by mid morning,I decided to call to make an appointment to see the paed at abt 11am..

And just as i was getting him ready to go to the doc, I realised he wasn't as 'warm' as before and so I took his temp again... and for the first time since he had fever [Sunday nite], his temperature dropped below 38%..It measured abt 37.5%. I think the li' bugger knew that if he goes, he'll get pricked by the needle (doc was gonna do a urine and blood test) so he decided to get well prompto! Called the doc's office and they said that if the temp spikes again, then bring him in..and till now, his temperature has actually gone down to 37% ..Am praying that it'll stay this way..

But..the spots on his face..aiyoh..! He looks like me when I was 18 (a teenage with lotsa pimples)..most of the spots are around his mouth and a 'patch' of rash just appeared on top of his lips. And furthermore, the rashes due to roseola has also sprouted too..mainly around his forehead near the scalp (tiny red dots scattered about) and some ard his neck and arms. Well, just have to hope that the rashes subside during the next few days so he'll look presentable during his birthday :) Actually, I'll be happy enough if he just recovers by then..not pretty nevermind :P..


I think Aidan has my eyes and nose :)

And the fella was actually fussier when his temp came down..Kept on wanting me to cuddle him and constantly making those babyish whimpering sounds. But..the feeling of it is actually kinda nice lah.. Feels just like when he was still a little baby :)</div>


Man..got tons of presents wrapping to do especially I was unable to do so the past few days. I'm such a klutz at gift-wrapping and am wondering whether I can get hubby to help me do it although he's just as bad with wrapping...I really marvel at how people can be so creative with fanciful papers, ribbons and flowers..My wrapped presents always look like they are about to fall apart...

Tomorrow will be my turn to watch LOTR trilogy ..Got the starhub redemption tickets to watch the second marathon and it starts at Saturday 1am and will probably finish by lunch time..I'll just have to make sure I don't fall asleep during ROTK..

action sampler ah? all the while I thought lomo will create such an effect..*blur*

think his fever peaked for the past 2 days. now should plummet down liao....dun worry about the rashes...if it's roseola, they will disappear in about 3 days..still in time for his birthday party!! hehe

anyway, great to hear he's better....:))

Happy birthday, Aidan!! May you be happy and healthy always....

Re: yeah!
i think it is roseola..some of the 'dot's aren't..probably due to the initial food allergy but the rashes due to roseola has finally sprouted..ard his forehead and neck/arms. So at least it's a sign that he's on the road to recovery!

Thanks for ur bday wishes to AIdan :)))

So did the paed say what's wrong with him? Poor boy...can see that he is not happy...
Dec. 18th, 2003 05:50 am (UTC)
ended up not goin coz his fever went down considerably by late morning (just when I had planned to bring him to the doc for a urine & blood test)..Aidan probably din wanna get jabbed so he got well fast :D~
It turned out to be rosealo coz the spots/rashes finally came out today..

i think this series is extra sweet. both of you (though aidan is crying)

very close bonding of just mama and baby.
Dec. 18th, 2003 09:37 am (UTC)
thanks..i actually like this series of pics too..nice to be reminded how 'babyish' aidan can be :)
Dec. 18th, 2003 09:16 am (UTC)
did you teach him the TL look?
Dec. 18th, 2003 09:38 am (UTC)
No..that was self-learnt..i think he takes after hubby in that aspect :P
Dec. 18th, 2003 09:27 am (UTC)
Aidan looks so sad, in the first pic and his face is all scrunched up and red :( I just feel so helpless when babies cry, I just wanna cry with them :(

I like the second and third pics. Second cuz he's being comforted by his mummy and piggy :) and third one cuz of the darker lighting and the angle of your faces.

*raises hand* me too! I'm horrible at wrapping presents which is why I use the bag and tissue method, just by a bunch of different sized bags, insert present,cover top with tissue paper, sure it sounds lazy,but I'd much rather do it like that then look at a poorly wrapped gift.

Ya don't fall asleep during the movie hehe you might miss a few good parts!! :P
Dec. 18th, 2003 09:36 am (UTC)
the reason why he was cryin in the first pic was coz he was actually happily playin with the cap of the camera lens and when I reached out my arms to take the pic, the cap went with the cam so he could not longer play with it anymore..so immediately, his face scrunched up ..

But he's quite easy to console usually..not one who cries v long n often..best way is to distract him with something..in this case, piggy :D

Hee..the most impt is not to fall asleep in the last movie coz at least i've seen the first 2 and i have the dvd at home just in case too hehe..
