So anyway, while waiting for our turn to see the doctor, Nyx was busy waving “Hi” to everyone she saw at the lobby. Very awkward for me and Guojun cos we don’t speak much French, and people were trying to be friendly and talking quite fast, hahaha. There was also this little boy around 2 to 3 yrs of age with a serious cut on his head and blood all over his t-shirt. He was just busy running around and making his poor dad and sis chase after him.
Finally when we got to meet the doctor, the first thing Nyx did was start screaming and crying hysterically, something she does every month when she goes for her regular checkup. You see, the doctor had around his neck a stethoscope and he was wearing a white uniform. So Nyx thought she was gonna get another injection on her tiny backside. Even the nurses were screamed and shouted at by our monster. Oh my poor eardrums………. She refused to sit down and just clung to Guojun with all her might, afraid that once she sits on the observation table her backside is gonna get “stung”.
The doctor checked her ears and throat and told us her throat was slightly reddish, so it may be the cause of her fever (a sore throat), but just to make sure, they had to collect her pee to run a test, checking for the possibility of an infection). So they attached a pee bag to our little monster and asked us to wait for her to peepee, then call the nurse to do the test. Guojun and I were already so tired by then. Finally I couldn’t stand it, I asked Guojun to take Nyx to the toilet and turn on the water tap. It worked! Haha…. You see, everytime I give her a bath, she pees when she sees the water running. So finally the test was done, there was no infection so the doc told us it might just be a virus. He gave her a dose of Advil and wrote a prescription for us so that we can buy her meds on Monday when the clinics open. Aiyoh, poor Baby. Lucky for us, I already had on hand the meds which the doctor prescribed. Some months back when I took her for her regular checkup I insisted the doctor write me a prescription for meds just in case Nyx developed a fever while she’s teething, and I never needed them, till now. Phew! So great, don’t need to wait till Monday.
Although the baby Nyx is alright now, we’re still monitoring her temperature and making her drink loads of water. So all the grandmas and grandpas and aunties and Godmas and grand uncles and aunties and the clan of nannies………. donch worry ok? Hehehe =) Nyx and I can’t wait to see all of you soon!
