Me and Kory are off to the doctors today.
I’ve been feeling a bit run down lately and today I’ve woke up and my throat feels all swollen and it’s difficult to swallow. I hope it isn’t tonsillitis again!
And Kory just hasn’t been himself at all over the weekend. Since ringing 111 Kory did improve and I’m not half as worried about him as I was when I made that phone call but he just isn’t himself. He hasn’t had a temperature since, he’s been playing and he’s eating and drinking but he hasn’t been sleeping, night times have been horrendous and his nap during the day has been halved. He seems to be crying A LOT which is so out of character, one thing Kory doesn’t do is cry for no reason.
Winge, yes but cry, no.
He’s been super clingy and he keeps putting his hand in his mouth and screaming. I’ve had a look inside his mouth and I can’t see anything different but then again, I’m not a doctor. It does sound like it could be a bad case of teething but never has Kory ever suffered with teething like this before and this has been going on now for a few days.
I’ve decided I’m going to take him to the doctors just to be safe.
I hate seeing him like this, I feel so helpless and I just don’t know what to do to make him feel better. Calpol helped with his temperature and cuddles helped him to calm down but nothing seems to be helping with his mouth. The thing with toddlers being unwell is it could be absolutely anything, it could be something, it could be nothing and there’s no way of them telling you. It’s just a guessing game.
I’m hoping that by taking him to the doctors he can give me some answers as to what has been wrong with Kory and something to help him feel better.
P.S. Even when we’re both feeling under the weather we can still smile for the camera 🙂
