Wednesday, 27 November 2013: Two Hundred and Forty Days Old.

After spending most of the day sleeping, Ayla’s temperature reached 39.2 degrees this afternoon.

The fever prompted an immediate visit to the doctors, which ended up with a prescription for antibiotics and a list of things to watch for.

It seems that Baby Ayla has a virus (the red itchy eyes and runny nose), an upset stomach (the diarrhoea), a flared-up case of nappy rash (due to the diarrhoea) AND an ear infection (hence the antibiotics)!

The poor little darling. She looks so terrible, she feels hot and she’s limp and listless but there’s not much I can do!

The doctor told us to keep her cool with damp face-washers is the fever persists through the Baby Panadol, and we’re to watch for any rashes or overall deterioration.

I don’t think it’s anything serious (touch wood), but having a combinations of minor illnesses is making it all so much worse for her! I just hope she gets well soon!!
