It is not the highest temperature yesterday.
It was my 6-year-old son's body temperature yesterday.
He told me yesterday morning,
" I have a sore throat. I also have a headache."
I touched his head but it was not hot.
I took his temperature but he didn't have a fever.
"Maybe you might feel tired because of the air-conditioner and too hot days recently. But you don't have a fever, so go to the children's house today."
I told him.
"No! I don't want to go! Please take me to the hospital!"
"But I can't take a day off easily because we work on the shift. If you feel sick, tell your teachers. I will pick you up."
I took him to the children's house then I went to work.
When I was going to have a lunch with my co-workers, the company's phone rang.
It was my son's children's house.
The teacher told me,
"Since he couldn't eat his lunch and he told me that he had a headache, I took his temperature, he had a fever of 38.1 degrees Celsius (100.58 Fahrenheit) now. Could you come and pick him up from now?"
I asked our leader to leave early and went to the children's house to pick him up.
After we came home, it was getting worse and worse.
I took his temprature, his fever was 39.5 Degrees Celcius (103.1 Degrees Fahrenheit)!
I made an appointment with pediatrics.
But he didn't want to go there because he had a severe headache and almost threw up.
I called the hospital and told them that we could not go there by the turn of his reservation.
I kept cooling his head with ice, but he couldn't sleep and looked in pain.
After an hour, I took him to the hospital.
He cried and said,
"It is too hot in the car! I have a headache!"
Yesterday's highest temperature was 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 Fahrenheit).
But his temperature was higher than that.
His weight is now 20kg.
He was too heavy for me but I had to carry him.
The doctor said,
"His throat is swollen. It's probably summer cold."
After we came home, I gave him antipyretics.
Then he could go to sleep at last.
While he was sleeping, I went to the nursery school to pick up my 4-year-old daughter.
He slept for 2 hours, then he woke up.
Medicine seemed to work, and his temperature had gone down.
Since he didn't want to eat, I made him drink water and take antibiotics which the doctor prescribed for him.
He woke up before 6am in the early morning today.
He has still a slight fever, but he is fine now.
I am relieved.
Maybe he will be able to recover his colds today.
