Alice has had a temperature since yesterday afternoon :(  This morning I popped over to the flat to see how she was and she really wasn't well. We phoned the on call Doctor and were asked to take her up to the local hospital to be checked over.  It seems that it's a viral bug and her throat is inflamed but not infected. Claire was advised to keep giving her paracetemol and if she gets any worse we've to call the Doctor again.

It's horrible seeing her like this because it's the first time that she's felt this bad - she's had colds before and the rash recently but this is the first time she's had a temperature and really not been well. She doesn't know what's wrong and gets upset so easily and we feel quite helpless.

Claire had been up a few times last night with Alice and I was glad to bring them both home after we'd seen the Dr because Craig was working today (and Claire couldn't find her house keys!).  After Claire had had some lunch and Alice had had a little bit of yoghurt they lay down on the couch together and managed to get some sleep.  I couldn't resist getting a photo.

As Alice just wants her Mummy at the moment, Claire phoned in to work to explain what was going on and has got the day off tomorrow so that she can look after her. I'm so proud of Claire and the wonderful mother she is to Alice.



  1. Oh poor ALice. I hope she's feeling better soon and that Claire managed to catch up with her sleep.

  2. It's so horrible when little ones are hope she's better soon.

  3. Oh, poor little girl, one feels so helpless when they are ill. Glad Alice and Claire managed to have a sleep. Hope all will soon be well. Lots of love. xxx
