Almost all day today I spent my time sponging him down to bring his temperature of 40 degrees C down. It would come down for a while before spiking up again within the hour. Several times I would put him under a warm shower for 10 minutes to bring the temperature down, but still his fever wouldn't subside.
In the evening, after an exhaustive day of sponging him down and putting him under the shower, I decided on another method to try to cool his body down by getting him to sweat as he did not sweat at all today. I told him to skip, little realising that my son actually has never skipped. *grin*
Here he is in his attempt to skip.
He did sweat, but still not enough to bring his body tempearture down. We just got back from the clinic again just now (11.45 pm) since Aiman's fever did not break at all despite all the sponging and warm bath that I gave him all day, and the skipping that he did.
He is finally sleeping more soundly now compared to last night after another dose of fever medicine. I just hope that he sleeps well through the night. I need my rest too. It's been a very long day......
