He’s All Better Again

This is Oisín (Ush-een). He’s been a bit sick over the past week and things took a turn for the worse over the weekend. He got gastroenteritis and the poor thing couldn’t fight it off himself. I’ll spare you the details of that horrible virus but let’s just say there is a lot of cleaning up involved.

After a few trips to the doctor, they decided it was best to get the fluids into him through IV as he was getting more and more dehydrated. Nothing was staying down and he was only getting sicker. The IV fluids did the trick. After 4 hours he started to perk up and I was then able to slowly drip more fluids into his mouth while he slept.

He’s much better now, he’s at home with his mum getting lots of cuddles and all the Peppa Pig he wants. Just seeing this little fella in the hospital bed was heart breaking and I knew it was nothing serious. I could see other parents up there who’s children weren’t going to be let out anytime soon. My heart goes out to them, I don’t know how they do it.

On a different note, who the hell puts plaster cast down a sink?

One thought on “He’s All Better Again

  1. Parents go through a tough time. We complain when we have tough days as its such a challenge when they are acting up. But the worst ever is to have your child sick in hospital. Even though at such a young age you might think they don’t know, they do… they are so smart and can absorb their surroundings. All you wish for in life is that they are happy, healthy and laugh as much as humanly possible…. if there is one thing that kids teach me on a daily basis .. its not to ‘take things so seriously’.. sometimes its okay to laugh at silly things and do silly things.. also its the simple things in life that keep you happy.

    I will think of this the next time I complain about taking a train. Instead I will look at it from a perspective of a child and think ‘this is absolutely the best thing in the world, and I am so excited right now, I could actually burst!’ … its okay to say bye bye silly man and wave as you go bye on the train – who cares if you look crazy? If that is crazy I think I would prefer to be crazy then…
