Oh my hat! What a week! Wednesday daycare phoned and told me to come and fetch Jamie because he started vomitting and his little tummy isn’t well either. So hubby went to fetch Jamie and brought him home where we both watched him like hawks. After a good nap it was clear that he wasn’t going to keep anything in and our thoughts immediately went to March when he had the Adeno virus and was hospitalized and on a IV for 3 days, so his dad took him to the doc while I completed some work stuff.
Poor little guy wasn’t only suffering from a stomach bug, but he’s got an ear infection as well and the sinusses are blocked and a bit of an eye infection. On top of this all his toofies are bothering him as well.
But we’ve got a little trooper! I kept him home with me yesterday, I had a rough day as I had to work as well, but we survived and after lots of cuddles and lots of love and care from his mommy and daddy he is better, not 100%, but definitely better. So this weekend we’re staying in, cuddling up and having loads of quality family time together.
I get so sad when my little one isn’t well. I just wished these little bodies didn’t have to get sick and they were guaranteed full health until they’re at least teenagers. They don’t understand why they’re not feeling well and it breaks my heart. I’ve never felt this helpless in my life, until I held a sick baby. Yesterday again, I just wanted to cry when I held that warm, “pap” little body and he put his arms around my neck, perfectly content to stay in my arms and snuggle up against me- other days he just wants to run around and play and only indulge me in a quick hug before he carries on.
Mamma will make better, that’s a promise
Feel better my Jamie xx
