I understand now the importance of taking care of myself first before I can take care of anyone else.
I had a bad sorethroat Tuesday night. Really bad in that I couldn't even speak or sleep! I was sucking strepsils, sweets, guggling with Listerine, drinking honey, drinking water etc. When girl girl woke up and couldn't fall back asleep, I couldn't even sing her to sleep.
Worse still was the raspy breathing of Christopher beside me making me worried and awake. An occasional cough from boy boy and also hubby. Sigh....
Was going through in my head what I need to boil tommorrow. And the fact that I could not drink Hor Yan Ho because Caylee doesn't take too well to tea in her breastmilk!
The next day was worse. Thank God hubby took paternity leave. I decided to keep Christopher at home as well. Went to the doctor and got some presrcibed medicine for myself and boyboy.
Wednesday was such a bad day. I was feverish. Hubby was warm sitting under the fan while I was sitting as far as I can and was still shivering.
Worse still was that I had to take care of Christopher while hubby took care of girl girl.
All I wanted to do was to crawl under the covers. But I had to play 'car' with Christopher and watch TV with him.
Antibiotics helped clear my throat which was the worse of the pain. Runny nose at least I can manage since it doesn't cause pain, just inconvinience.
Christopher looks better. But now Caylee is down with a flu.
I really have to eat well and exercise and take care of myself. Else I cannot take care of hubby or the kidlets at all!
