No 1.  Youngest has got pneumonia....... yeah I know I couldn't believe it either!  He just had a virus cold type thing over the weekend and gradually got worse.  Yesterday afternoon he was screaming in pain clutching his tummy, temp 104.  I thought it must be appendix or something like that.  Took him to Drs and he said the lung pain appears in the tummy.  I know a lot of you know all about 'referred pain'.  Anyway the Doc said it was so bad that I would have to take him to Hospital by 8pm last night if he didn't keeps the antib's down.  The poor little lad has never even had a chest infection.  His first illness was earlier this year when he had penicillin for tonsillitis.  I wonder if once they get their first dose of antib's down them it opens the floodgates for all the bugs to try and have a go!  By the way he's much, much better now.  I can't believe the difference in him in 24 hours.  I have been told he will be susceptible to more infections for a few months following this.  Anyone had any experience of pneumonia?

No 2.  When we got back from the surgery yesterday afternoon our oldest son had fallen down the stairs whilst holding a pair of scissors and was spouting blood everywhere!  Luckily we have a minor injuries unit a mile away where my sister sometime works so that was soon under control.  It was only his finger but she said he had nicked a blood vessel which was why it was bleeding so much.

 

No 3.   This morning I came back from Brighton childrens hospital where my eldest had had a check up following a lump removal from his back (all ok) and the kitchen was under 2 inches of water. Someone (i.e. me!) had left the hot tap running.  Some of the units and wooden floor are ruined.  Hubby is not best pleased with me!

 

Hopefully that's all.

 

I need a drink!

 

Hope you're all not to bad today.

Hi Claire,

Really sorry to read that you have had a few to  many problems lately. Keeping fingers crossed that all problems are now safely out of the way! Very worrying when it is ones children!

 

Perhaps as Glynis says treat yourself to a take away, you deserve a little pampering, if wine doesn't upset your bladder then i'm sure a glass or two would be nice!

Take care love camomile

So sorry to hear about all this Claire! Hopefully things will calm down now.

But regarding the pneumonia, I had a very similar experience with it a few years ago. I first had a cold and then a few days later began feeling pain in my shoudler/upper chest area. Soon enough, I had a fever of 106 and could not keep anything in. I was put on strong antibiotics and within a couple of days I had no fever, very little pain. The hard thing about pneumonia is that it makes you so tired. For about 3 to 4 weeks after it, I could not walk 3 blocks without running out of air. And your doc is right, you do become much more susceptible to other infections. For the following two winters, I had a very mild form of pneumonia (they called it walking pneumonia) but since then, have been well. It's been a good 4 years now since I had anything like that. But children are more resilient than adults so hopefully, your son will recover faster and not become vulnerable to repiratory infections.

Hope you are well and recovering from all the crazyness and preoccupation. Take care,
Carla

Hello Claire,

 

I had Pnuemonia and Pleurisy when I was 6 years old (1958),  then the treatment for it was quite long drawn out spent 3 months in hospital, first two weeks under oxygen tent and still have lumber puncture scars on back. No idea why I had this just started off with a cold.

That was then, now they can zap Pleurisy /Pnuemonia with anti-biotics straight away.

Although it left me with a weak chest, I have had no trouble since.

Kids including me are very resiliant and do have a hundred percent recovery.

Wishing you calm waters from now on.

Thanks all,

 

Just to say all ok with everyone this morning.  Little boy is so much better it's unbelievable, he's even gone to nursey today although I will pick him up at lunchtime - it may be too much for him to stay all day.

 

I had three glasses of Lindauer last night (my fave!)  Oooh, it was lovely!  Slept like a baby!.

 

Take care all,

Claire xx

Hiya Clare

 

I am so pleased things are looking up for you and that the children seem better.  Glad you had a good sleep!  Is that drink alcohol??  Havent heard of it.  What I cannot understand (and probably never will) is one day I can drink alcohol and I am absolutely fine yet another time I can drink it and I am in 100 per cent agony!!??   It is not consistent.....

Hi Chrissy,  It's Australian Sparkling wine.  I do actually prefer Champagne but can't afford to drink it very often!  My real favourite is Laurent Perrier but I only ever have it Christmas/birthdays/anniversaries/bank holidays/days with a 'y' in them!  Only joking of course!

 

Why does my font keep changing every time I write  new message?

That is so wierd.  It's completely different when I write the message.  At the moment it's saying the font is Verdana (10pt) and when I post it it comes up normal.  I'm not even gonna try and work it out!
