Last night, I hardly slept. Chubby kid was down with fever. Her temperature did not go down even after continuously taking fever medicine every four hours. She awoke at 2:25am, all feverish and cranky. Again I fed her with the fever medicine and use an ice pack to bring her temperature down. Finally, at 4am, she broke into a sweat. After 36 hours of continuous fever that did not subside even with medicine, it was a relief to see her sweat. I was already feeling the after-effects of lack of sleep.
I heaved a sigh of relief and tried to catch a wink before sunrise.
