My older daughter is feeling under the weather. She's down with cough and slight bronchilitis. I have started her with her ventolin yesterday. Today, I brought her to see the doctor and doctor had advised that we continue with the ventolin for 3 more days and he passed me some medicine for her cough and running nose.
We stayed at my mum's place today. We had late breakfast which means our lunch was late too .. ehehe
