Bruises, Bumps, Coughs and Colds!

What am I talking about? Well its my little girl again. She hasn't been well all of last week...firstly last Sunday night she developed a fever that kept us up at nights sponging her to keep her cool. Well it was more like having to give her cold showers becuase after a while she didn't want to be anywhere near the cold damp cloth we were using. Surprisingly, the fever went away by Wednesday night. We thought that we were out of the woods.

On thursday after work we let her play with her slide and was kinda happy to have her back. However, that night out of nowhere, she got a sore throat and cough. More sleepless nights for her and us because everytime she would get a bout of coughing, we'd wake up. We figured that it must have been why she had the fever. Anyway, it was a nasty cough so yesterday we took her to see her paeditrician and got a whole lot of medication. Things seemed to subside a little and we all enjoyed a nice long nap in the afternoon...well deserved under the circumstances.



Later my good buddy Sean came by with his wife for a little visit. It's his birthday today so we went out for a little pre-celebration dinner and took the little one with us...all wrapped up and cosy. We wanted to try the German bierhaus in the Curve but it was packed solid. Probably because Chinese new Year is almost here aand lotsa folks are oout shopping. So we headed to our favourite joint, Tony Roma's which is within walking distance. TR's was packed too and we were told that it might be a 30 minute wait. DOH...what do you expect on a Saturday night. However they did ask us if we wanted to sit outside where they have alfresco dining. It wasn't very popular last night because it was raining a little so we took a look and found that it was cozier outside not as stuffy as inside because of the crowd.


We were all so hungry after waiting that we ordered too much food. Moreover the portions were large and we struggled a little to finish but eventually did. Burp! Anyway after dinner we were in a joyouds mood and sang Chinese New Year songs all the way home! Well we only knew one song and kept singing the same song!! LOL Even Ellie chimed in...of course she wanted to sing "Jingle Bells"!!
Anyway after we got home we watched a little tv and drank coffee...and this is when I took my eye off Ellie for a second when I heard a loud thump and saw her on the floor. Initially she was quiet and then she started bawling her little eyes out. The bump formed quickly!! Gave us a little scare and while we put ice to keep the swelling down it was has to console her. Usually I'd jsut tell her get up and continue playing but this time I was a little concerned but I think she's okay now. You can see the bump below...it's subsided a lot from last night!
I really wished that I had put wooden floors like I had wanted to for a long time. The impact would have been so much less painful. Unfortunately everytime I start thinking about it I end up planning to change the look of the whole place. I really need to get some Home Decor ideas and actually did find a nice place that has Interior Design Ideas. This will be very helpful to me to make up my mind on the actual style I want. I'm tired of the old house look. I want some new ideas and maybe a new theme like the European Decors I saw. I usually get my stuff from a certain blue and yellow Swedish furniture store anyway. Hey the meatballs are great!!

GP kids are like that lah...always sick...at least six or seven times a year I read somewhere recently!! According to her paed. there is a another new bug going around again. Terrible lah!!

I should get frequent flyer miles (or frequent eater) at TR's lah...It is my fav. joint right now!! Actually my buddy goes there too but we've actually never been there together. I even got him to try the honey mustard dip and he loves it...and he hates mustard!! LOL

Cheers Marzie! :)

Adrian said...

Darlene!! Thank you...I hope so too. Chinese New Year is just around the corner and I hope she'll be better by then.

Cheers! :)

Adrian said...

LJ!! Yes she does need loads of attention and I really feel guilty that the course is taking so much time away from her. I'm really torn by that but eventually this will benefit her.

Yes me and wifey are looking forward to the long break. In fact this week got no classes but we are working on a group assignment today. In fact this year we won't really be celebrating CNY!!

We are taking Wednesday off to do the reunion dinner (long story but we have it at lunchtime) thingy but as usual we won'tbe going back to her hometown in Ipoh to meet the parents. Instead we'll be with wifey's uncle!

We usually host a little meal for the family and friends on CNY day and give out goodies and angpows but we probaby will skip the hosting part and study! So sad huh LOL Still a few days to go so might still do something impromptu hehehe

Cheers LJ!!

Adrian said...

Adrian said...

Janice!! Sorry to hear about poor little Amos...I really hope that he'll get better soon! Poor guy must be having atorrid time with the bad cough and vomiting. Hey I read somewhere that if you put vicks on the soles of a cilds feet at night and cover them with socks they won't cough. I just read about it and haven't tried it...maybe you can and let me know if it works okay Janice! Cheers to Amos! :)
