If we were having coffee, or hot chocolate with extra marshmallows (Which, currently I am mildly addicted to), I’d tell you how utterly exhausted I am.
Since September, my daughter has been so ill, pretty much constantly, except for a few weeks here and there (Thankfully, she had a great birthday and was well for that). This week she started off okay, but Thursday, World Book Day (The day when kids seem to dress up as their favourite film character, but that’s another story entirely), I had to go and get my dressed up as Matilda daughter from school, as she was sick from coughing so much. Things went rapidly downhill from there, and Friday morning she woke up with what she thought was a bite on her arm. So she came into my room saying, “Mummy, there’s this bite on my arm”, but clearly my kid had not looked in the mirror yet, because her face was absolutely covered in hives or urticaria or whatever you want to call it. After giving her anti histamines, things only got worse.
We ended up taking a trip to the doctors and she was diagnosed with bronchitis, and her allergy type rash is because of that. She was given a pump for her bronchitis and stronger anti histamines. Unfortunately, the anti histamines still aren’t working, and when she woke up this morning, ridiculously early because she was so uncomfortable, the rash had turned into one giant hive causing swollen hands, and ankles. The doctor and the internet says it can last 48 hours so hopefully it will start getting better tomorrow. The pump is working, she’s still coughing really bad, but I can tell it’s doing what it is supposed to do.
What surprises me the most, is despite all the illness she’s struggled with, pretty much constantly, she’s still so positive. She asked me to take a picture of her back last night, because she wanted to see how bad it was. She was so glad I did because she said it looked like a penguin and it made her laugh. I really wish I could be that positive about rubbish stuff. Bless her. I hope she starts getting better tomorrow.
Things haven’t all been doom and gloom. At the beginning of the week, I bought myself Call of Duty Black Ops 3, and it was a huge surprise that it was so good. I’ve always preferred Black Ops because of zombies, but even the multiplayer is good. I’ve been really enjoying playing it by myself and with my friends. Surprising!
Anyway, I should get going and get my little one some dinner. I also need to go shopping for a new theme, as the theme I’m currently using doesn’t allow for complex tables. Given that I talk about several different topics, I figured that a theme with menus and submenus would make it easier to get to the topic people want to read about. I also thought it would be better for some of the mental health posts I want to do.
I hope your weekend has been better than ours.
