A Poorly Little Lady

So some of you may have noticed that it seems as if I have fallen off the face of social media and the blog over the last few days. Today is probably the first day where our household has had a bit of normality and I have been able to sit down and write, my beauty has been so poorly. 

I knew a few days ago that there was something wrong with her because she was quiet, not getting into mischief and became cuddly. To be honest with you all I love the cuddling part something she rarely does but trying to locate my keys and the television remote - not so much.

On Friday we became very worried when her temperature reached 39.1 and we made an appointment with the GP, who advised us to keep giving her Calpol and Nurofen which did help lower her temperature. But that night was horrendous as she would only settle for about 20 minutes before waking up screaming, it was a long night for all of us. 

The next day she wasn't any better with her temperature and it hit 39.8 so we telephoned for an out of hours appointment. Lady was so poorly she wouldn't do anything other than lay there, cry and she wouldn't settle on her own, I had to hold her all the time (which was not helping with her temperature). It was so hard to see her so poorly especially as there was nothing we could do to help her - we just felt so helpless. We finally got to the hospital and the doctor was so great with her. We were told that she was doing well considering she had an ear and throat infection which was causing further pain with her tonsils. My poor little lady. 

The doctor gave her some antibiotics along with Calpol and Ibuprofen. But we had to wait around the hospital for a little while as the doctor wanted her temperature to go down before leaving and 40 minutes later after she destroyed the children's area we were allowed to go home. We put our little lady straight to sleep and caught some much needed shut eye ourselves...we needed it!

The next couple of days she began to get back to herself especially when we got a visit from Nanny and Grandad - it was like she was a different child! Grandparents just have that effect on them, don't they? It's been a few stressful couple of days but thankfully she is on the mend. 


  1. All last month I and both of my boys were sick with Bronchitis and it wasn't fun being sick myself and worrying about my kids being sick and not being able to do much for them. They were given anitbiotics, which helped a great deal. I was actually sicker for longer. I'm still getting over it. I hate when my kids are sick though. Even though they're older and can tell me what's wrong, I still worry, especially when they spike a fever. That worrying never goes away, I'm afraid. I'm so glad your daughter is on the mend.

  2. Thankfully she is all better now making a mess of the front room, but I wouldn't have it any other way. To be honest with you this was probably the first time she was really ill and for quite a few days. Poor Amelia. I couldn't imagine that worry going away as she gets older though. Glad that you and your family are now over the worst too. Thank you so much for popping over and for your lovely comment.

  3. Ah poor little Amelia. It's so worrying when your little one is sick. I'm happy to hear she is on the mend. I hope she's back to herself now. Thanks so much for joining us for #bloggerclubuk, hope you will be back again tomorrow! x
