Just looking for a bit of hand holding really as I'm by myself and away from her.
DD(3) sent to hospital by GP this afternoon with tummy cramping, raging temp, high pulse, shallow fast breathing. They think some kind of infection. She also has a weird rash on her leg
I've been with her since then - she's had a cannula put in for anti-bs tho not had them yet as well as some medicine in her bottom bc she spat out the oral ibuprofen...
Now I've come home to feed the baby (7mth) so DH stayed but hope to go back later. Am on autopilot, bathing dd2 & now feeding. Don't know what I'll do w myself when she goes to bed. Ha! This'll be the one night without bedtime dramas to keep me occupied won't it?
Oh I feel for you. Five weeks ago my dd2 aged 5 was sent to hospital by ooh doctor. DH had to take her as I had a two week old dd3. I have never felt so lost and helpless. Luckily she came home just after midnight but those 5 hours were awful. I would add dd wasn't at all fazed that I wasn't with her though . Hope your dd is ok, let us know.
Yes stealth, my PiLs going to come back but they have a thing til 9.30 so I'm here til then. Hopeful can go back then and DH come back for baby tho it makes more sense me staying at home as BFing, don't know if I can.
It must be horrible for you to have to split your time like that. Sending wishes for a speedy recovery. Intravenous antibiotics can work like magic in little people & she'll probably be full of smiles very soon
Oh you poor thing. I know how it feels ... one of you has to be at home for your younger child while the other stays in hospital. Its very very hard (and just about the only time I really wished we had parents nearby to babysit). I am sure your dd will get better very soon. Sending every possible healing thought to you and your family.
I was in same position as you when ds was just 4 and had a 3 month old and he had swine flu and pneumonia and Dh had to take him to hospital. I felt soooo guilty! It was Xmas day too. ds wasn bothered, he had his teddy and Dh and when he got home he was spoiled rotten
