Yesterday was very, very quiet. It appears that I am the noisy one in this household after all. Who knew! I woke this morning hardly able to speak and when I tried it sounded like I had smoked 100 cigarettes a day for the last 30 years. I haven't smoked for 8 years now so I know it's not related to that. It's horrid though and what is worse, which is why I am going on about it is my poor little baby has it and her 2 biggest sisters! The only plus side was and has also been today that because I have only been able to whisper whenever I talk the girls are all whispering too.
I just wish there was more I could do. I actually got a doctors appointment yesterday which was a massively impressive accomplishment. Unfortunately he said he wouldn't do more than prescribe rest unless I completely lost my voice or the girls worsened. Well guess what? Yes, I completely lost my voice and I ended up with a horrendous fever and I didn't realise until the hubby told me this evening that the girls had fevers too. He had to look after all four of us. I don't have tonsillitis but it feels just as painful. How is one suppose to ring up for a further appointment if they have no voice and more to the point no energy left to get themselves to the doctors? I should have pushed harder yesterday but, unlike my usual self, I just didn't have the energy to argue.
I did know that baby was really poorly last night because the first time in ages she came and slept in with me. I couldn't do much apart from cuddle her and she thought that my mummy magic powers should do more. How can you explain to your 2 year old baby that you do not actually hold any super powers? Kev was super dad last night though. He took her to a cooler part of the house to help her fever, managed to get some water in her and cuddled her until she was calm enough to sleep with me. I felt so bad listening to her crying for Mummy and me not having the energy to go to her or a voice to call to her no matter how hard I tried.
On a positive note: Harmonie took the tree decorations down with a little bit of help from her sisters and myself; We all watched The adventures of Tin Tin: the secret of the unicorn, which was actually really good if anyone was wondering; Naomi painted her snow glitter globe so now it's nearly finished; Honi has been bouncy happy all today and Kev came home with a takeaway coffee from the coffee shop.
The weekend is near and I'm hoping my lovely hubby doesn't catch this as it is miserable. Hopefully I'll have something more interesting to tell you all in my next post.
