Just a quick post while I am trying to wind down after a hectic 24 hours.
As mentioned yesterday ds had a gastric bug. Well this took a turn for the worst and he was hospitalised yesterday afternoon and put on a drip to re-hydrate him.
He went down hill fast and before I knew it I was at the doctors surgery and then sent straight to the emergency department at the local hospital. He had been vomitting every half hour all day and although I was getting him to drink fluids he could not keep them down. He was so weak and couldn't even walk. I had to carry this 12yo from the carpark to the hospital and it felt like miles. A nurse that had just finished work saw me struggling so offered to get a wheelchair. He spent the night being monitored and I stayed at the hospital with him overnight. The paedatician was worried that ds had appendicitis but this turned out not to be the case.
Anyway I was not sleeping well and at 2.30am I got a call from hubby who had succumbed to the virus as well. I had to leave the hospital at some unreasonable hour to come home and pick hubby up and transport him to the hospital for a jab in the rear end, bring him back home with all his medication and go back to ds. I arrived back at the hospital at 4.30am.
Eventually when I finally drifted off to sleep it wasn't long and breakfast was served and the doctor popped in to check on ds.
We arrived home at around 2.30pm today and I crashed into a deep sleep for an hour. All the time I have been thinking "when is it my turn?" but nothing yet although I have a queasy tummy and I pressume that is from disrupted sleep. Knowing my luck I will be up all night suffering with the virus but I hope not as it is a nasty one.
So needless to say the very hot day yesterday was soon forgotten about and some of the nectarines have fallen to the ground. I am not feeling at all like picking any at the moment, maybe after a good night sleep (hopefully) I can attempt them tomorrow. Yesterday evening I had to leave ds at the hospital while I came home to give the garden a drink and check the animals. I had to do this as well this morning as hubby was too sick and sleeping like a baby. He is still sleeping but feeling a lot better. Ds is a lot better although his appetite is a bit off and he is feeling a bit flat.
I had to cancel all the Day Care children and advise them to stay away for a few days.
Will be back soon,
