    Currently in hospital bored with my 10m old. It got me thinking how many times have you had to stay overnight with your kids in hospital.

    We stayed in hospital for 3 nights when kiddo was about 3mths old. He had an infection of some sort(I honestly can't remember). Only time thankfully.

    Twice.

    First time was when ds was about 15 months old and he had tonsillitis. He had had febrile convulsions earlier in the day which lead to an ambulance taking him to hospital. Overnight stay for monitoring and he was discharged the next day.

    Second time was earlier this year when ds (5) and dd (3.5) had their tonsils/adenoids out. Dh and I could both stay with them overnight (we had a double room) and they were discharge the next day.

    Default Hospital

    More than 100 nights with DD while she underwent chemo for 8 months. Could be as many as 120-130 but I didn't actually count. You get used to it when you have to do it so much. Even though the parent beds are pretty uncomfortable you eventually just get so tired that you don't care and sleep right through the constant nurse visits. Though if DD was in there due to an infection I tended to wake more easily if she stirred, then I'd press the call button if she needed help.

    Then when she broke her leg a few months ago I stayed two nights with her.

    By comparison, DS has had zero nights in hospital.

    She's ok she has an bacterial infection of some sort. Bloods came back ok, she's on a drip and we are waiting on stool results but they could take days. I really struggle being in hospital it gives me anxiety. We've had enough hospital this year.

    The reason we came is she had blood in her poo

    So far so good, she's in remission now. Has MRI scans every 3 months currently. I'll relax more (maybe) once we pass the 18 month mark after the end of treatment. With the cancer she had, supposedly if it hasn't come back after 18 months it most likely won't ever. But I think I'll always be terrified of relapse. Which I think is understandable I guess.
