Ok let me catch you up… Ada and I have the lurgi. It all started last week when I started feeling a bit off so naturally I stocked up on Lemsip capsules, lemsip drinks, berocca, iron supplements, eating my weight in kale and litres of orange juice (with bits!! for extra goodness naturally) BUT it crept up and bam 💥 worse cold ever!!!! Made all the worse because I’m getting like 3 hours sleep a night …. which brings me onto Ada.
Our lovely poppet is full of it, blocked up, coughy and congested. Even her little eyes look sore. 😞 Not only this but she also had to have her first set of jabs & her little health check too… it’s probably been the hardest few days yet (ever 😰) But huge shout out to the nurse who did them, she was ridic speedy! Health check went well, I obviously had a list of stuff for the dr to check. The only thing we have to go back for is Adas little heart, she didn’t know if there was maybe a little murmur there so going back in 2 weeks for her to double check – just for absolute 100% clarity that’s she’s fine!
One thing I have realised since she’s been poorly is the importance of our little daily routine && now we’ve had a tough week it’s quickly becoming undone, she isn’t sleeping very well & is super clingy. She will only be settled by me or my mum too which is odd because she’s normally such a Daddy’s girl for the evening cuds. My Mum only popped in from work to drop off some snuffle babe and I kept her prisoner for 2 hours & made her feed Ada.
I ended up taking Ada to the drs on Monday as I just wanted reassurance that she hadn’t developed bronchitis or collapsed lung or anything ( I have to stop googling) … she hasn’t! Btw the dr was amazing, really set me at ease and told me things to look out for and made me not feel stupid for counting how many times she’d sneezed that morning (25! 25 times!) Told me to cuddle, let her sleep propped up a little and make sure she’s getting enough milk, and advised me of the right way to use calpol! (I’d been giving it too her for fun 🙈)
All all the while this is going on… Ziggy (our dog) went into be castrated today. But he couldn’t have it done because he needed to have his soft pallet done instead. So he’s walking round all wobbly, disorientated & is crying. ☹️ Not only that but he Pooped on my new La Redoute rug! 😡 Oh which Ada also puked on this arvo too… brilliant.
And now Jamie is getting the cold….. which as you can imagine is worse than ALLLL of the above and we’ll probs end up in A&E tonight because he can’t breathe out of his left nostril”Carli, I’m getting soooo ill you don’t understand 🙄🙄”
Anyway wish me luck, I think tonight might be a long one. 😩
