Coming to the end of this weekend, I honestly just feel pretty drained, physically, mentally and emotionally.
Thursday this week saw this one over here give me a pretty horrid scare. At 820am, way past her usual wake up time, I went into her room to wake her only to find I couldn’t. She wasn’t unconscious or anything but she was just extremely drowsy. I shook her hard several times, and each time she would briefly open her eyes to look at me, then close them again. When she seemed slightly more awake, I told her to go get changed and I left the room to sort out the younger ones and on my return, I was horrified to find her slumped on the ground. She was conscious but not responding to my questions of what’s the matter and if she was in pain. I picked her up and she literally just flopped into my arms as dead weight, with hardly any ounce of strength in her. I cannot remember when was the last time I was so scared
I called the hubs who was at work and then my in laws and was so thankful that the latter were home and were able to get to us quickly. They helped me bring her to the GP while I stayed home with the younger two. Totally wished I could have gone too but it would have been too chaotic for us all to go. Anyway long story short, she was diagnosed with dehydration and a viral infection and is totally fine now. #AustralianSummerisSoBrutal
But then the other two kids and finally the hubs caved to the virus too, leaving me the last healthy wo(man) standing. #Notfunbeingtheonlyhealthyone
So yup that was my week in a nutshell. I don’t feel ready to go into a new week but that’s motherhood hey. Chin up and keep walking 🏼! Anyone else relate?
All that said, I’m so thankful it wasn’t something worse, thankful my loved ones are all over the worst of their illnesses now and that they are all on the mend! Here’s to a better week :) ️ #storiesofplay_motherhoodtales - 12 hours ago
