Sick Season

Just like they say at Christmas 'Tis the season to be jolly...' it seems 'Tis the season to be my household at the moment. My Gran came home last week and seems to be doing okay. I think she is as well as she is going to be. It's just sad to see the marked deterioration in her so suddenly. However, it is now my mums turn to be ill. She has had the sniffles for about a week but then on Monday couldn't even get out of bed. I was so worried about her that I nearly took her to hospital but encouraged her to go to the doctor and put on some strong antibiotics. She was diagnosed with community acquired pneumonia!

Today is the first day she has eaten since Sunday and the first time she has been out of bed to not take medication or be sick. As a result everyone has been mucking in to run the house and it's times like this that I realise how much my mum actually does. I'm surprised she wasn't taken ill sooner!

With mothers day being on Sunday (in the UK!) it certainly makes me realise how much I appreciate her. I am certainly spoiling her over the next few days.

Get better soon Mum!
