2009-05-01T21:13:00.000+01:00

I sympathise with you. Aexander has had hayfever every summer of his life. It does seem to improve a little year by year and touch wood he hasn't started yet so I'm hoping he will eventually grow out of it.
We have lots of rapeseed fields here too. I don't get hayfever but boy that pollen certainly affects my eyes and throat.

Maybe we should all be quoting Max when talking of swine flu. After all "It's just a cough".

We all worry when our kids are ill - a perfectly normal reaction. Wait till they try it on and their perfectly healthy - drives you mad!

PS. I was following your blog, then my blog had a meltdown and lost you. Found you now.

You're so lucky that he doesn't get sick much. My daughter seems to suffer viruses back to back, from autumn through to the end of spring.

Happy Birthday to you! Enjoy your weekend.
It is hard enough for me to nurse a cold of my own, but the kids have such a hard time telling us what is wrong.
They are also much more resilient when they are sick. Sounds like you did well.
It also sounds as though it could be just seasonal allergies and Asthma aggravated by those allergens.
I too am an asthma sufferer and he sounds like a strong boy. very important.

Happy Birthday SPD - and I know just what you mean about when they're sick. You don't want to over-react and yet you don't want to miss something important (which, by the way, it usually isn't). I'm sure that when my sons are ill they wake up more because I'm in and out of their room checking on them, than they ever do because they're actually not well...

2009-04-30T18:39:00.000+01:00

I love it! The last time my son went to surgery, my husband and I were nervous as can be and my son was kicked back in the bed with his legs crossed and his hands across his stomach. Just TOTALLY relaxed. He wasn't worried a bit.

Have a great birthday! I hope it's wonderful.

Can absolutely relate to you on this. We so wish we could take away the illness with a magic wand don't we.

2009-04-30T05:41:00.000+01:00

I hear you! I got the "your child isn't feeling well" call today from the school.

I went to pick up the kid, and she had a horrible rash all over her body. Hives? I have no idea. A first. I've been a wreck all afternoon... She's a trooper.

That's so classic: "It was only a cough."

Happy Birthday!!

2009-04-30T00:20:00.000+01:00

My son currently has a tonsil infection (complete with puss and everything). The problem is that he's only 2 1/2 and still isn't talking in full sentences yet, so he doesn't understand the importance of taking medicine even though it tastes horrible.

The Ex and I had to hold him down last night so he'd take it. Worse. Feeling. Ever.

He forgave us both minutes later with smiles and hugs, but to have to do that is gut-wrenching.

2009-04-29T23:12:00.000+01:00

It is the hardest thing to be worried about them when they are so little so I completely get the loss of humour. There's always that tinge of fear, 'what if' and no matter how much we rationalize our feelings, in the end we just love them and we want to take the hurt away.

It's good Max feels safe and loved and is able to say 'it's only a cough'. He is obviously not picking up on a less funny dad, but a dad who gives him what he needs and doesn't pass on the worry. You're amazing.

Oh and Happy Birthday for the weekend. You're just a youngster compared to my very mature 34....(Not).

2009-04-29T19:27:00.000+01:00

Does it make me seem a little bit crazy that reading that reading that there is someone else on this planet that is...hypervigilant made me feel normal?

My children are older than yours is, and over the years they have had to tell me more than once "it's just a cold mom."

2009-04-29T18:58:00.000+01:00

It can be difficult when your kid is sick. For me, it's the helplessness... like, I'm the DAD - I should be able to take care of them.



Firstly - a)birthday!!! Have a good un b) Walsall!...

2009-04-29T17:09:00.000+01:00

Firstly - a)birthday!!! Have a good un
b) Walsall!!! - jeez and I thought I was bad ;-)

And now to child illnesses. Mine never gets sick (oh don't you just know that I'm now going to get a full on onslaughter of child illness). The odd runny nose but thats it. Nothing the calpol can't sort out. But her Dad is convinced that everytime her nose runs she has swine flu (ok maybe not but you know what I mean). If she is ever at his and her nose runs he hot foots it over to the doctors (who is absolutely crap) and she returns with a dose of antibiotics. I have had countless run ins over this as to me the doctor is just perscription happy and how can someone have a chest infection when they haven't so much as coughed??? Plus we all know at this stage that antibiotics aren't good for kids at all.
Calpol all the way for me :-)

I feel the same way and my son gets sick quite often.
His dad was very sick as a baby -- asthma as well so every time he starts sniffling or coughing my mind starts to wander through all the possibilities.
..and allows me to argue with his MD. lol
Most recently he's started wheezing when he's sleeping -- very loudly, and you can tell it's coming straight from his chest.
Call me a paranoid mama but I worry. His doctor not so much.. so maybe I should take a cue from you and start to listen.. :p
