Call The CDC, This House Is A Quarantine Zone!

I haven't had two minutes to stop and smell the roses this week. Tomika has been sick as a dog with a virus. So the Doctor says anyway. The poor little bugger has had a sore throat, cough, runny nose, aching limbs, and her asthma has been really, really bad. So bad in fact, that I have had her sleeping in my bed so that I can keep an eye on her during the night.

Neither of us has slept much, her because she can't breathe, and me because I'm too scared to sleep in case something happens and I don't catch it in time. Needless to say, we are both exhausted, her being worse, obviously.

She's finally asleep, for the moment anyway, and I thought I'd take a sec to myself to come on and update here before I'm back on duty. If she's still this bad tomorrow, I'm taking her into the hospital.

Bloody hell... Nobody ever told me that being a Mum would be this terrifying!


  1. Oh, poor thing. I'm sorry she isn't feeling well. Hope the doctors can give her something to heal her quickly.

  2. Awww poor kid. My eldest has asthma too. She had Bronchitis for 6-8 weeks. It took a long time for her to get better but she finally did. She slept in our room on the floor for a few nights. I sure hope Tomika gets better soon.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I absolutely LOVE comments!!!
But please, play nice okay?
