Need an energy injection

It's been a @%$&# of a week.

DS woke up 2.30am on Sunday morning vomiting, and as the day progressed, developed diarrhoea. This continued on Monday, and Tuesday morning I took him to the dr. A sample was taken and on Thursday the verdict came back... campylobacter. Which is a notifiable disease. So now I feel like the worst mother in the world. I've no idea where he's picked it up - could be daycare, could be some chicken we had, could be some bird poop he's got on his hands etc. DH and I have escaped it so far. Which is just as well. Ministry of Health is supposed to call me, but so far I've not heard from them.

My poor little boy has been lying around the house hardly knowing what to do with himself. He does seem to be on the mend thanks to the antibiotics.

Now I need something for the lethargy thats getting me. Sleepless nights, helping my folks move into their new place, low iron - it's all catching up on me.

  2. Oh man, you aren't kidding about your week. I agree with Janine, you need to be looking after you too. Big hugs. And phooey to the Min of Health, they rang Mum and queried her after Dad contracted campylobacter after he had been in hospital for a week. They couldn't see how Mum wasn't to blame for that one!!
