40 degree Celcius

I am sorry I haven't updated on the Melbourne trip pictures yet. The thing is Arianna was down with fever since Monday. It dragged for so long and there are times where her body temperature hits 40 degrees. She hates sponging, hence I occasionally throw her in the bath tub to cool her down. Her fever is high especially at night time, hence we have to shove in the medicine to her ass hole.

Yesterday was her fourth day and I took her to see the pediatrician. She went for blood test and her white blood count is low. Sign of viral fever. Luckily her platelet level is still normal. She went for another blood test today to monitor that. Because low platelet and low WBC is a strong sign of dengue fever. But Alhamdulillah, the result came out negative of dengue and WBC reading is improving.

I am happy for that. But the sad part is, it's not going to be easy anymore to take her to see the doctor. She is so traumatized especiall after having to go through 2 blood tests, one day after another.

Hopefully she'll recover from that soon. We have a full weekend coming. Wifey will be entering the Mengo Green Hunt competition on Saturday. Saunday evening is Arianna's cousin birthday party and Sunday morning Wifey and I will be watching Transformers 2. Yes I know Optimus Primus is going to die in that movie.......

Enjoy your weekend :)
