Where Did It Go So Wrong?

I know you get the strength to cope with things but sometimes it does all get too much and it brings you down, well today is just one of those days.

I had to take Little Gnome who is 1 to the doctors as he was coughing and spluttering, his breathing sounded so awful. It all started yesterday he just had a slight cough and as the night progressed his breathing deteriorated. Why is this getting me down, well the fact that my child is ill. This is the third time since Christmas that he has had a chest infection, I was half expecting him to be admitted into hospital.

We got to the doctor’s and luckily it was my doctor who is lovely and so helpful. He listened to his chest and straight away he was put on a nebulizer for a good 10 minutes to open up his airways. Whilst he was on there, I told him I had not heard from the pediatrician about Gnome’s referral. Well straight away he tapped away on the computer to start chasing it up. The records hadn’t been updated to show Gnome has physiotherapy and occupational therapy once a fortnight, so that was going to be sorted today as well. Fingers crossed it won’t be long for the referral then we know exactly what we are dealing with and put wheels in motion to get the right support etc.

The outcome of the appointment was he has yet another chest infection, he has been given steroids, inhaler, anti biotic. If I have any concerns about his breathing or it sounds like this morning, I have to take him to hospital. This all stems when he had bronchitis when he was 4 months old and was in hospital a week, which was an awful time.

I’m sat here just watching Gnome as he is fast asleep with all the medication, wishing i could help him more ,so upset that he is ill again. I’m an emotional wreck but need to stay strong for the rest of the family.

  1. Oh sweetie, (((massive hugs))) it’s HARD, i know. My lil one is really unwell at the mo, so having to use his inhaler. Only problem is he screams and uses all his strength to try to push it away when i try to give him it. You are doing an amazing job with your little ones. Xxx

  2. Oh hun. Nothing “constructive” I can say…. just sorry Z is ill again and try and get some rest (easy said).

  3. Hey hun, just checking out your blog during my lunch hour. Sorry to hear yr wee one not well again. You are a super amazing mummy and Little Gnome is very lucky. It would be nice to have a stress free week. Hopefully things will pick up soon. Just remember that you have to look after you too. Sending hugs your way and let you know thinking of you as always.

  5. I’m sorry to hear Little Gnomes back under the weather. I really hope this is his last infection for a very long time – his little body needs a break from being ill. Take care both of you! xxx
