Being a parent is tough. Life can deal a few tough blows as well. Like most people, we have had our fair share of illness but the biggest surprise was just last week when I had my daughter👧🏼 home for a week with the shingles.
The shingles of all things! What the heck?? She is like, 13 years old for crickey’s sake. It was a surprise. Like you guys, I have been avidly watching the news, learning more about this Corona Virus 🦠 that has hit the world 🌍 The shingles was not on my list of approaching illnesses.
I can’t tell you how scary this was. I was really worried that if she is sick, her immune system would be taking a hit. 3 sets of antibiotics and cream later and we are on the up side. There is nothing more worrying or stressful for a parent than a child who is in pain and there really is not a lot you can do. Now that my friend is scary frightening. I can’t flee you how many night we were up just sitting there with a hot drink in the night. The hardest few days I’ve had for a while!
Lucky for us, she is back to her normal self. Quick action and no messing around, getting her to the doctor was really what made the journey less painful for her. Miss HD was gutted to be away from school last week and she missed inter school athletics and the school social! 💜
I am really pleased we made the week go by quickly. We washed everything!! I honestly was doing about about 2-3 loads of laundry each day just to keep on top of things!!!
Advice- well all I can say is be safe out there! We just don’t know what is going to happen but we can manage ourselves so keep safe and healthy!!
