This week I have felt as though I have been floating. Almost a bit like I have been walking next to myself trying to push my body along.
Braeden has been quite sick this week with a weird gastro bug. Which has meant that I have spent every night this week with barely any sleep. He even went a whole 24 hour period without eating or drinking, although I did manage to get some breastmilk into him. He is now making his way through a packet of icy poles, but hey, anything to rehydrate him right?
Braeden being sick is a whole new experience really. It has been a long time (well 3 years, so not THAT long) since we have had to try and coax fluids into someone. One of the great advantages of Ryley having a PEG is that when he is sick, we can still pump fluids and feeds through. When he has gastro, we can at least keep him hydrated because we can slip little tiny syringes of fluids straight into that tummy of his.
Can't do that with Braeden.
Anyway, he seems a bit better today.
It really is hard to juggle the whole work versus sick child thing hey? David and I played tag team this week with work. We never take days off for ourselves if we are sick. We can't. We have to save them up for when our kids are sick. I guess that is what most people have to do though.
At least the weekend is meant to be nice. That means time out in my garden which has been neglected this week. On the plus side though, there are two massive zucchini's which I will stuff. And my squashes have gone crazy again too. Nothing like a bit of neglect to make things grow!!!
