Joel's Condition

Sunday, 30 March 2008

  • Whole day sleeping
  • Ate 500mg paracetamol every 4 hours
  • Didn't consume anything except water, glucose, coconut water and apple juice.
  • Went to Samitivej Hospital to see the Doctor at 7.30pm
  • Took a blood test to determine the cause. It was a bacterial infection.
  • They suggested to hospitalise him since he was prone to vomit and looked a little dehydrated and weak.
  • We wanted to wait for the results of the blood test, first. When the results came out, we decided not to. He will feel more comfortable at home and I will monitor his condition hourly with an ear thermometer.
  • The Doctor gave him anti-biotic, nose decongestant and nausea medication.

  • Still with fever. Drinking fluid only
  • Having stomach cramps.
  • Massaged his hands and legs.
  • Ate some plain porridge with soya sauce at 11am.
  • Felt better after the food.
  • Smile for the 1st time in the last 2 days at 12pm
  • Fever has gone down
  • 12.30pm - Came downstairs to listen to online radio - The Pond & Kids Corner
  • 1.30pm - Ate a little more porridge
  • 2.00pm - Sleeping again
  • Towards evening, fever has gone down but has bad headache, stomach cramps and weak and couldn't sleep
  • Monitoring him....
  • Will be sleeping with him tonight, to monitor him closely. Have not slept with him for ages, since he was a baby.

Joel feels really bad .... This is the first time he is feeling so ill for a very long long time. In fact, I don't ever recall him being so ill. If he doesn't improve much, I will be taking him to the hospital again tomorrow.

My goodness, what kind of bacterial infection is this???!!

Please pray for him.
