What A Week! A Week of Project 366 (Photos 54-60)What a week. I've tried, so far to publish a photo a day as part of Project 366 and, apart from a couple of really busy weekends where I've taken the photos each day and published 2 or 3 together, I have managed it. This week, whilst I did remember to take a photo every day, I haven't switched the laptop on so publishing these has had to wait.
Bud woke us last Wednesday at 6am and we discovered that he had been sick all over his cot. He couldn't even keep water down until Wednesday evening and was a very poorly boy indeed. Thursday dawned with no more sickness but very unpleasant nappies. He was drinking but wouldn't eat anything and was very listless. Having a sleepy, floppy boy on my lap all day led me to phone the Doctor as I was worried about dehydration. Happily they could fit us in straight away so we took him down. The Doctor assured me that he wasn't dehydrated, not to worry about the not eating and to keep giving him juice to keep him hydrated.
We had been invited away for the weekend with Grandma and Grandad, Bud's Aunt and Uncle and two Cousins on Friday so I was really hoping he would be well enough to go. He woke on Friday a bit brighter. He still wasn't eating very much at all so we kept on with the fluids. The nappies had calmed down considerably but still weren't pleasant. I was fairly confident that being around the family would cheer him up so we headed off to Patterdale in the Lake District on Friday afternoon. When we got to our room we didn't have a travel cot supplied but there was a spare single bed in the room. We decided to risk him in the big bed and he slept beautifully. There was only a small gap between our bed and his and we filled the gap with the spare pillows and tucked him in well but there was no incident at all and he slept like that for two nights. I was a bit emotional seeing him sleeping peacefully in a big boy bed. I don't think I'm ready to change him into a big bed at home though.
I woke yesterday feeling brighter but, by lunchtime, started to feel awful again. Bud was very grumpy because Mummy was no fun. He only cheered up when Grandma came to take him out again.
