PINK SICK

PINK SICK - well not really.
Mind you it is a post about being sick and some pink pretties.
Last week I was sick and so was Riley. It was tough babysitting Riley while I was feeling 'very ordinary'. By Friday the 3rd day of babysitting both Riley and I were feeling yucky. After Rileys lunch I put him down for a nap and 2 hours later he woke up feeling quite hot. I took his temperature then stripped him down to a nappy and singlet gave him some paracetamol and went outside where it was a bit cooler. I thought this may bring his temperature down a bit. He was quite lethargic and just lay on me all afternoon not wanting to eat or drink. By the time Amy came to pick him up at 6 o'clock I was ready for him to go to the Doctor as he had a temperature of 39(102) Of course the doctor was closed so we went to the hospital where we found he had inner ear infections. Thanks to antibiotics and paracetamol his temperature came down and he is much better.
As I am due to babysit again on Wednesday I thought I better get myself to the Doctor too. So now I am on antibiotics too and have similar to Riley but with my infected throat I have hardly any voice and have to speak in a whisper for the words to come out right.
So annoying not to be able to speak. Well it is for me but maybe Max sees it as a blessing!!!
So that is the Sick bit and below is the Pink



With most things packed away because of out floor getting done I have used some old photos for this weeks pink


This pretty little pink cup was given to me by a friend on her return from a recent holiday in France

Chloe amongst some pink on my bed






Have a great week

Such lovely pink treasures Alison. I am sorry that you don't feel well, this is a terrible time of year to be sick. Is it terribly cold there yet? And poor Riley, I always hated it when m girls would have ear infections...they can be so painful. I do hope you are feeling better. Karen

YUKKY YUKKY!!! I do hope you are feeling much better soon!! It's terrible when our kids or in your case grand kids are sick, you just wish you could transfer the pain dont ya!! Cooper was quite ill two weeks ago, his Temp peaked at 41degree's. I Stipped him off and washed him down with a cold cloth it was terrible. He had this yukky virus going arounbd, unfortunatly apart from panadol there's nothing else they can do when they have it. Thank god it only lasted 4 days but that was enough. I hope your week get's better!!

I hope you feel better soon, and Riley too! Your pink is beautiful!! Chloe is too cute and I love what I can see of your house.

I was just talking to my mom about you and when she went to Australia last February she flew into Melbourne and stayed their a few days before going to wherever else she was going to. Just a bit of small world info.

Hope you feel better!

Ooh ear infections are the worst, in my household they always seem to magically appear in the middle of the night. I now keep Auralgan in the medicene cupboard to ease the pain til we get to the hospital.

Hope you + Riley are now on the mend!
