Ayah and Hasya were feeling better on Monday night and throughout half of Tuesday. However, by the time they came back from work and school respectively yesterday, both were having slight fever again, and aching joints. The bug seems to be making its comeback every other day it seems. And this time around, Hanna pun dah start demam.
She looked pretty pale and was not her usual perky self when she got back from her tuition last night. Gave her a couple of PCM (which she had difficulty swallowing, as usual :) Hilman and Hasya are much better at taking pills whole compared to their Kak Long actually :) Anyway, after having her supper, she went straight to bed. I told her that she should not go to school if her fever were to get worse, but she insisted that she had to go to school as they were having the inter-class choral speaking competition today and she was the conductor for 2H.
You can read her version here :)
Hmmm...all three of our kids are like that! They never want to miss school even if they're sick! It's good I guess...But, that would mean that they can be guilty of spreading all the bugs to their friends at school! Sigh...
They follow their Ayah. Cannot stop working. Throughout his waking hours, he would be working, working, working.
That brings us to the next thing. Ayah had to work on a presentation which he's scheduled to give tomorrow, and he was also supposed to work on his 2-weekly article for Me*ro Ah*d last night, but, he just had to take a short nap before he started tapping on the keyboard. He had been working on an article for Ma*ay Ma*l the last few days which was sent to the Editor just yesterday, and he really needed a break. And his fever was not helping at all.
Just as he was about to lie down on the bed, Hilman came in, grinning. We knew that he was hoping to be allowed to sleep with us because apparently there was a BIG cockroach on the wall outside his room when we got back from my MIL's last night, and before we knew it, it was gone. And Hilman was pretty sure that it had gone into his room. And because of that, he was so not going to sleep in there :)
Seeing Hilman entering our room, Ayah asked him :-
Ayah : Chiman, urut kaki Ayah, boleh? Please?
Hilman : Okay! (without hesitating at all and he went straight to Ayah's feet), but I want to check if your feet got fungus or not first...
Ayah : Fungus??! (And Ayah and I tergolek-golek tergelak!) HAHAHAHA!
Just then, Hasya came in, asking me to feel her forehead. I had also just given her some PCM before that for her fever, and she just wanted me to check if it had started to work on her or not. And Hilman said -
Hilman : Kak Ngah, are you demam?
Hasya : Yeah...
Hilman : You can sleep with Ayah and Mommy tonight. I sleep with them when I demam, too, you know?
Hasya : Naaahh...I want to sleep in my room, but, I just can't sleep.
Hilman : I always relax here first, you know. Everytime before I go to my room. I relax here until I feel sleepy. But, sometimes I would fall asleep terus. You can relax here first, too, Kak Ngah.
(That's Hilman - offering OUR bedroom to his Kak Ngah. Hehehe!)
Hasya : Naaahh...I think I'll go up now. If I still can't sleep, I'll come down. Okay, Mommy?
Me : Okay, darling. (Kiss kiss, Hug hug). Get well soon! You come down if you cannot tidur, okay?
Hilman : So Kak Ngah. You're not sleeping here tonight? (Just making sure :))
Hasya : Naaahh...
Hilman : Okay then. I can sleep with Mommy and Ayah then.
And he jumped straight onto the bed!
And yup! He ended up sleeping with us sampai pagi.
But, not before he was satisfied that Ayah's feet didn't have fungus on them, and not before he urut his Ayah's feet until Ayah pun tertidur... :)
