yay, boo’s not sick anymore

so, as the title says boo’s not sick, nor is yogi (who started once boo stopped..) and tom has been to canada and back, the carpenter & painters came and repaired and painted our windows and i’ve survived. not brilliantly but i have.

the garden is blooming but i haven’t downloaded photo’s from camera. boo has been eating peas straight from the garden, both green podded and purple podded. we’ve had strawberries and even some potatoes. the first ripe, red tomato was eaten yesterday and all (almost) in the garden is rosy. the carrots are struggling. some bastard rabbits keep eating them, although we may now have solved that and the brassica issue so things could be looking up. we have squashes and melons and celery and all sorts doing very nicely thank you and i will insert images once i get the chance.

the chickens seem to be doing ok, mostly 4 eggs a day. they have completely trashed my herb garden but it was to be expected and nothing further will be planted until one of us has constructed a lid for the patch.

muffin’s having a good time at school after a horrid period. Noise is thoroughly enjoying being in school and has chosen her GCSE options, all of which she is very happy with. Boo started Tumble Tots and is loving it. Yogi, well she’s just yogi, small and smiley and very very loud – being the youngest of 4 she definitely want’s to not be forgotten…..

anyway, proper catch up another time when i have more time, and some images and i feel more like me

Boo’s sick

no real work going on here at the moment – well other than some freecycling as boo is sick.

she’s been sick since monday, all she wanted to do monday was watch telly and regardless of the less telly life we’re trying to lead i let her, she was so grouchy i decided to just go with it, i’m glad i did. monday evening she started throwing up, continued until midnight, then took a four hour break and started again at 4am…. took a few short breaks through the day and then managed a full nights sleep! yay, we thought, she’s better…. nope, wednesday we called the doc and the conclusion was if we couldn’t get her to keep anything down in the next couple of hours she would have to spend the night in the Royal Alex (children’s hosp)…. this is where the good bit/fun started!

the doc pointed out that as i was still breastfeeding  her (which i don’t shout about but do feel very strongly about) we had the best possible chance of keeping her out of hospital. if i could just convince her to only take tiny amounts every 15minutes for an hour and then every 10 minutes she should be ok. so that’s what we did. and so far she hasn’t been sick since 4.30pm yesterday – i haven’t had the courage to let her take more milk in one go yet though. i thought if she made it to 4.30pm today then she could have some toast maybe? she’s still quite listless but better than yesterday and as i said, 21 and a half hours without throwing up…

so that’s probably it blogwise for this week, i’m knackered but, yay for breastmilk, if she wasn’t still breastfed she’d have spent the night in hospital, attached to a drip!
