Baby Bears Got Sick :(

posted in: sick bear (Tags: , ) - 2 Comments

It was a rough week for the Bear family.  First, Boy Bear got cough, cold, then moderate grade fever.  Then, when it seemed that he was getting better, Girl Bear suddenly had convulsions. It turned out that she had fever at the time of the seizure.  Papa Bear and Mama Bear had to bring her to the emergency room.

The fever climbed p to 39.9 degrees with no obvious focus of infection. CBC and urinalysis were not suggestive of bacterial infection.  Since Boy Bear got rashes the day after Girl Bear got admitted, we began to suspect roseola infantum.

After more than 3 days of fever, the rashes finally appeared and the temperature went down.  What a relief to know that it’s nothing serious!

The Bears Meet Big Blue

The Big Blue Whale, that is.  The largest animal on Earth. The largest that ever existed.

Papa Bear noticed that there was this display of the world’s biggest baby at Market Market in Taguig City. He decided to bring Mama Bear and the Kid Bears to see this display.

They used to be a numerous breed, but they are now an endangered species, mainly because of hunting by men.
