She has chickenpox and has had it for a week. Today has been horrendous, she has tantrumed (sp) all day. She has even had my mum in tears. I just couldn't believe that she could be that awful without an underlying problem! Biting, kicking, screaming like a lunatic.
So I googled 'complications of chickenpox' and convinced myself she had a brain issue.
They said she was fine. I feel like a bit of a twat now.
Had she had any medicine with amazing additives. Ds went mental (in hospital) when given paracetamol (the lovely pink one) with a steroid. Because apparently the steroid tastes bad. Well I think that 4 hours of non stop screaming and thrashing was not worth a 30 increase in taste enjoyment.
No, nothing. Dh has just come in after two days away and she is being the model child now. I think she has just been sleeping so badly because of the chickenpox that she has got herself into a right overtired state. Dh and I are creeping around her now, terrified we'll set her off! Wimps.
suwoo - ds used to get very teary and shouty after nurofen. We switched to paracetamol suppositories and he hated them so much he pleaded to be given nurofen. I told him it made him angry, he promised it wouldn't, his temp was very high - I gave in. At the first sign of shoutiness I reminded him about his promise and threatened the suppositories again. And you know what - he has been fine since!
