Project 365 2015: Week 8

It hasn’t been the kind of half-term we’d hoped for, with my daughter having a nasty virus. So a pretty uninspiring week is reflected in some pretty uninspiring photos!

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 46 – Sunday 15th February – my daughter has been ill since last Friday and has been lying here ever since!

Day 47 – Monday 16th February – I never give Calpol or Calprofen without keeping a careful record! This is my rather miserable record of my daughter’s consumption for the last few days.

Day 48 – Tuesday 17th February – we made it out of the house! OK, so it was only to go to the doctor, but the sky was lovely and blue.

Day 49 – Wednesday 18th February – physically, my daughter was almost back to normal today. A day of eating and drinking normally and she would have been back on her feet. Unfortunately, she had post-viral temporary arthritis and couldn’t stand up. I realise I’d been running on adrenaline all week and today I just felt drained, and sad for the half-term my daughter and I had missed out on. But the sun shining through the window was beautiful, at least.

Day 50 – Thursday 19th February – my daughter’s illness took a worrying turn for the worse (I’ll share the story on the blog next week) and she ended up getting checked out at the hospital. I’m pleased to say they let her out a few hours later. This is a photo she took herself.

Day 51 – Friday 20th February – physically, my daughter was finally better today – she was smiling, chatting and eating, but she still has a bad foot,which means she can only hobble or hop and needs carrying a lot. But she made it to Sainsbury’s to get her red nose, at least!

Day 52 – Saturday 21st February – it’s that time of year again – my daughter has made a countdown chart until her birthday in three weeks.

  2. Oh no, I’m sorry to hear she has been so poorly.
    We’ve had it here too and it sucks day 8 of stomach upset for Harry and it is horrid.

    Glad you managed to get outside for a bit.
    Lots of love

    • Oh dear, that’s a really long time for a stomach upset! It really is horrible when they’re ill. Roll on spring so all of our families can be healthy again!

  3. Oh how crap for you all, hope she is feeling so much better now. The sun does look lovely shining in – what lovely high windows you have! The NHS need some new fabric – what crap curtains to have to look at! Hope normality resumes soon x

    • Thanks very much! She’s finally back to normal today, although she can’t walk very far! The curtains are hideous, aren’t they? We have photos of them from over five years ago when my eldest broke his arm! We love our windows, they were what attracted me to the house in the first place 🙂

  5. Not a good week for you – and it’s always rather frightening (at least I find it so) when your child takes a turn for worse and has to be taken to hospital. Love your shots with the stripy shadows and the blue sky.

    • I find it very frightening too! Luckily she wasn’t at the hospital for too long. Thanks very much – I liked those two pics as they were happier ones! I think this is the first time ever that every single shot has been taken on my phone.

  6. I’m so sorry your week was full of illness. The arthritis must have been a scary thing to experience. She must be feeling brighter making a birthday countdown ;0) x

    • Thanks very much. The arthritis is a very strange thing and it still hasn’t cleared up properly. She’s definitely feeling more positive and looking forward to her birthday now, though 🙂

    • Thanks very much. Her foot has improved slightly since she went to the hospital, but has stayed the same for a few days. Hoping it miraculously improves soon.

  13. I was sorry to read your updates during the week but I’m glad the week ended better for you all. Children don’t bounce back quickly, I love how she’s counting down to her birthday. Hoping March is the start of good health for you all! xxx

  15. Thank you! It was horrible to have it wipe half-term out, but I know she would have been devastated to miss a whole week of school!

  16. What a worrying week and a shame you couldn’t enjoy the half term. Hope she’s well now.

    Post a Reply

  18. Oh no how awful, and in the half term! She didn’t even get to stay off school which makes being ill slightly better 🙁 Glad she’s over it now! We were at the hospital too this week with Teens broken wrist! x

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much. I actually think she would have hated to miss school! Your poor Teen! Kids are hard work, aren’t they? x

  19. how worrying that the virus has had other nasty side effects. Hope things are improving. I like the nice bright curtains round the cubicle.
    A great idea to keep a record of when the medicine is given, I know when I had a virus a few weeks back between antibiotics and pain killers I could not remember what I had had when, so probably went longer than I should have done rather than overdose.
    Love the sunshine picture, nice to have a bright side to look on.

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much, the sunshine certainly did brighten up a miserable week! I’ve always kept track of medicine since the kids were little. When they’re having so much it can start to get very confusing. The latest thinking is that my daughter’s bad foot is to do with the nerves, unfortunately it’s still not better 🙁
