    Default Feeling down, little vent..

    This week my DD has her first fever. It got so high the other night we spent the whole night at the hospital emergency department with her getting all sorts of tests done, she was miserable. It's also the week of her first birthday

    Today I begged DH to work from home. I understand he can't and he had to go to work, I just feel so sad because she's spent all day crying for him and calling him and I can't get her to settle. And when I call him he says he's too busy to talk. I wish his company could be a little more family friendly sometimes..

    Anyway no point really, just feeling sad for DD and a little over this week already.. Wish her first birthday could've been happier and less miserable...

    Aww It's not nice seeing our little ones sick, I still get a sad overwhelming feeling when my oldest gets sick Could you plan something special for when she gets better? Just something with you, dh and dd like a picnic at a park. Gives you something to look forward to and a chance to celebrate her birthday again without her being sick

    Fx she starts feeling better soon

    hugs, it is hard to manage when little ones don't understand. I agree make another day a special day for everyone when she is feeling better. I hope all the tests were found to be ok. and she is soon well. Marie.

    Does she settle in the car? Maybe go for a drive and somewhere picturesque and grab yourself a coffee . Sometimes just been away from the house is a nice distraction . Hope your DD feels better soon.

    Thanks so much for the replies, it's nice to know you're not the only one sometimes! And love the idea of planning something special, hopefully she'll be back to her usual self on the weekend.

    Thankfully the tests were fine, we'll just have to ride out the fever. It's heart breaking to watch though. Can't imagine how tough it must be for parents with seriously ill children...
