#CroupSucks

MOST RECENT

Nap in his cot lasted about 10 minutes so we are back on the sofa which we’ve been sleeping on for the last few nights, just like this! As long as he gets sleep it means he’s hopefully getting better with rest, however I am absolutely hanging as you can see all over my face 😱#tiredmumsclub#tiredmummy#needcaffeine#croupsucks

AAAAND I’m back after 3.5 months 😩 it’s been some time and I’ve missed writing for the blog. For the radio-silence and for being so understanding, I have left you with an account of my most difficult experience as a mother...the most difficult post for me to write...’The little girl with Croup...’ .
.
.
I’ve been postponing writing about this as I didn’t want to go back to that traumatic time when Alyvia had Croup. I hope it helps any parent/s out there who have experienced this horrific illness with their children. I’ve included an audio of Alyvia’s breathing...or absence of breathing (!) to give you an idea of what one might experience. .

Next post will be about why I was away for so long so stay tuned!!! 🤨🧐

Happy Tuesday and happy reading 🤓

Well what a weekend we had. Full of Hospital stays and visits from Friday - Sunday and then coming down sick myself on Monday (my birthday!). Thankfully the boys are doing better - Lachy is still battling high temps and sleepless nights for all of us. Croup got us all really bad this time round but all is on the mend. It's given me a huge respect for those poor families who constantly have their babies in hospital 💔. Thankyou everyone for your well wishes for the boys and birthday wishes for myself!
Also a huge shoutout to our mums who were tag teaming all the kids at different points of the weekend!

Even sick this little one is happy just like her brother was #luckymommy #croupsucks #earinfectionssuck #sweetbabygirl #hopeshefeelsbettersoon

My poor baby had croup. He scared me at 4am this morning when he was struggling to breathe. I thought we were going to have to go to the hospital but luckily it didn’t last long. So we took him to the drs this morning and she confirmed it’s croup. So he has to take steroids for 3 days and he should be all better!! There is nothing worse in this world than your baby being sick. So tonight call for a sleep over in mummy’s bed so I can keep an eye on him.

Poor little guy spent the night in hospital with croup and now he is wiped out. #kaiwilliam #sickbubba #croupsucks #purelove

Why yes I have been wearing the same clothes for 24 hours and have not left the house because both girls woke up with a croupy cough! 😭😭😭 After a long day of snuggles, Disney movies, lots of bathroom steam sessions and more snuggles it felt great to be upside down for a moment. Now time to shower and put on fresh pjs cause who knows how much sleep any of us will be getting tonight. 🤷🏻‍♀️ .

With my sick little munchkin 😩 #Croup #CroupSucks #GoodByeSickLeave #Dammit

It sits. And sits. And sits. Waiting. Staring at you. Crying out in wrinkles and creases.
Yup. This laundry has been sitting here allllll week long. Reminding me that I'm falling behind on, well, everything.
But the thing is babies get sick. And sick babies need mommies all the time- day and night. And that means things fall behind.
The things that fall behind are not the important things. So don't feel bad, mamas.
Let it sit as long as it needs to. Lord knows it isn't going anywhere. .

My gorgeous little love has been battling croup since Saturday. She got rushed to the ER by ambulance Monday night. She had a clear bill of health from her pediatrician earlier that same day. That's how croup is. It's scary, it hides and comes on strong at night. Before we called 911 we tried all the at home treatments to no avail. She's been sleeping all week. More than she slept as an infant. She is strong, she's our little fighter. As Rick said she's a Sayian, she comes back from illness stronger than before. #emmalilly #croupsucks #littlelove #sayian

Snuggles with my poor sick sausage 😢 hate seeing him not well, even though he’s not well he’s still full of cuddles and pretty cheerful. So much love for this wee thing of mine ❤️❤️❤️ #austinjames #snuggles #sickbubba #croupsucks #snapchat #lovehim #myweesausage

Slightly terrifying start to the day, Dex woke at 5.30 gasping and choking for air, then when he started "barking" coughing it was all systems go to hospital. Few hours observations and home with medication. Our little trooper though, you wouldn't think he's poorly, he was charming all the A&E staff!

Day 2 of croup is done. Seems like his cough is getting better. Hoping that he's able to sleep better tonight and that he continues to improve. Hoping mother's day brings me a Desmond who feels so much better.

Thought I’d get my boobs back once I weaned him. #notthecase #happymothersday #sickbubba #croupsucks

This sweet boy is exhausted. I hate seeing him miserable and it breaks my heart that I can't make this go away for him. Day 1 of croup has been a doozy and I think I'm getting sick also. Very thankful for mother-in-laws and husbands who step in to help so I can get some rest as well.
Thank you everyone for all of the prayers. It means so much for you to take time to lift up my baby boy. Praying and hoping that this is not something that lasts for very long.

This girl.... currently getting beat up by strep aaaaaand croup 😩😭. Not the way I wanted to spend Mother’s Day weekend but i’m definitely thankful I get to be with her when she’s feeling so crummy. Keep the prayers coming! Hopeful she gets better soon!💕 #ihatesickness #croupsucks #strepthroatsucks #nofilterneeded
