The mention of 'medicine' made her go all teary; 2 pairs of hands needed to feed her 2.5ml of the syrup (the 3rd pair snapping away on the camera); after swallowing the medicine, she started bawling.After a nursing directly for a while, she had the happy look again, aaaaah.. She's getting better already, thank goodness!

Cough & Sniffles
On Tuesday night, after sharing an ice cream with Samantha che-che, Zara started coughing, the 2nd time Zara she had cough and flu since she was born (touch wood). Although it wasn't serious, since I didn't have any medication at home, I took her to see the Paed on Thursday morning. I told her, "Mummy bring Zara go see Dr to take Medicine ok?". She started repeating, "Meh-ee-sen" At the hospital, she was happily running about, playing with the toys and slides at the waiting area. When it was her turn, she let the Dr checked her without a fuss. I also accepted the Dr's recommendation of a new vaccination called Pnemocococcal vaccination (for protection against bacterial meningitis, septicaemia and pneumonia). It was when he administered the vaccination that Zara cried. "Bum bum pain pain" She cried and complained. However, she still tearily waved and uttered, "Bye-bye" to the Dr when we were leaving.
