Living Arrows 17/52 – A testing week with a hospital trip!

This past week hasn’t been great, at all. Firstly, I’ve been unwell. Again. Yes I know. You’re always ill. That is what unhelpful people tell me. I’ve got immune system problems, that are bad at the moment. So yes, it probably does feel like I’m always ill. Anyway, on Wednesday last week I decided I wasn’t going to stay home and mope. I got Daisy and myself ready and off we went to Water Babies. Afterwards I had a doctors appointment and then we went to Sainsburys to do some shopping. As we left the store Daisy suffered a febrile convulsion. This lasted for 10 minutes. This Living Arrows 17/52 post gives you a brief insight in to what happened next!

Living Arrows is a linky from the lovely Donna from What The Redhead Said. Parents are invited to link up weekly and share photos of their children from the previous week. I love taking part and I’m looking forward to looking back at the end of the year.

Living Arrows 17/52 - Daisy after leaving hospital

This is our lovely little Daisy recovering when we got home from the hospital.

When Daisy had her seizure they told us that it was likely she was either getting over and infection or just getting one. I know Daisy and while she had been a bit off colour she wasn’t ill prior to this. However, since it happened, last Wednesday, Daisy has been poorly. She has been coughing and spluttering and it is presumed she has caught my tonsillitis. Poor girl! I feel awful for her and I’ve been recovering myself too so it has been a very, very testing week. Particularly for my husband.

Children are incredibly resilient though and Daisy, by Friday night, was already on the mend. As you can see here from this cute photo of her actually managing some more sleep!

There are lots of testing times as parents. I’m sure I’ll face more testing times than this in the future. For now I am just relieved that Daisy is well on the mend and today we are off on holiday!

    Oh bless her. I really hope she’s feeling better now – poor little thing. I hope you’re feeling better too x
