The last couple of days have been a bit daughter had a high fever the day before and temperature went as high as 103.2F... she lay listless, drinking a few sips of milk and water...we rushed her to the doc and were relieved to hear it was just normal is usual with her, as soon as we went to the doctor, her fever subsided..

Yesterday, it was fuss time..... demands for water, I had to carry her every second, if I sat down she was on my lap, and tears at every breath taken....!! needless to say, nothing got done, and dinner was home delivery from 'Mystic Punjab'...

By 10 PM, she was in high spirits and singing and dancing....while trying to sleep, she has a big routine of saying her prayers, then 'Good night, sweet dreams..' about 50 times to which both of us have to reciprocate, then 'mindathe kidakku' .. roughly translated as (keep silent and sleep), which is usually what I have to tell her a dozen times each night ... and finally, something new...a big hug and 'Ichunu amme ishtaayi' ...meaning 'Ichu likes amma'......

One hurdle over, thousands to come, the rewards just, and is good ....Thankyou God...!!!


  1. Wow. I'm glad she's better. I've been a registered nurse for over 15 years and have never heard 103 being referred to as normal....

  2. HI Swapna(:)
    Oh I glad your little one is feeling better ..I know how scary it is when they are sick and especially with a high fever~!!

  3. I've finally amanged to lg back into blogger. For two days I couldn't blog or comment!! But the gremlins are gone and I'm back.
    I am so glad your little one is feeling better and that it was nothing too serious. A tiring time for mum though.
    She sounds delightful!

  4. Hey great to know the little one is better now. My son had the same habit of saying good night and sweet dreams umpteen times! Enjoy it while it lasts :)

  5. So glad she is feeling better and today will be even better for her with no fever!

  6. Gud to hear that she is fine.We met in the garden in our society

  7. aww poor little thing, glad it wasn't anything too serious and that she's feeling better. The night time routine reminds me of when my daughter was little. It was horrible trying to get her to go to bed at night.

  8. Glad she is ok. Fevers are very worrying.
