So, I should probably start by mentioning that Kory is a little unwell.
He started last night with a temperature. Through out the whole of the night he was tossing and turning and crying. I gave him some calpol to help with his temperature and cuddles to help him sleep.
Today he’s the same except now he’s got a runny nose and a cough too and just isn’t himself at all. My child has had colds lots of times before but he would always just carry on as normal.
All Kory has wanted today is me. And as nice as it is to be needed, I haven’t been able to get on with the things I’ve needed to do. Like the housework. I haven’t even been able to get dressed!
I literally haven’t been able to do anything all day.
I know some of you are probably thinking
‘Who cares about the housework when your child needs you’
I don’t mean to sound selfish, it’s just we have spent the whole day in bed just watching tv whilst Kory sleeps on and off. He has fell asleep on me a few times through out the day but wakes as soon as I move. I feel so sorry for him, I hate seeing him like this and I feel so helpless, I wish there was something I could do for him.
Something is telling me that this could be the start of chickenpox. Kory has been around other children lately who have had it and my baby is hardly ever ill.
Not like this.
