Hi, I have written a few posts about my dd being so poorly all the time. She's caught bug after bug from nursery. Its been 10 months since she started and this winter has been awful. Since January we've been in a constant state of illness. My partners had 3 colds with fevers aches and pains. I had one virus lasting 10 days, then another lasting 2 weeks. My kids have had constant coughs, colds aches and pains. Last weekend I noticed the usual. My daughter was starting with another cough she had got from nursery. Then a day later my 14 month old baby started. On Monday he was struggling with every breath. I tried to get him in to see a gp early. They heard his breathing and said ambulance. I said I would take him to out a&e myself and off I went. 10 minutes later we were there. Within 5 minutes of booking in we were called in despite a busy room. They did his pulse and temperature. They said his torso was hot and hands and feet were cold. They gave him paracetamol, took bloods, started him on a strong antibiotic and put a canula in. They pumped iv fluids into him then contacted another hospital with a children's paediatric department. We were taken 50 minutes by ambulance to this hospital. They did more tests and said he would be staying in. They continued pumping antibiotics Into him. The next day they did an x-ray and confirmed the infection was in his lung where the air leaves the lung. He had to stay in 3 nights. He is home now on antibiotics still. He's barely eating. He's so sleepy still. There were 3 other little ones admitted into hospital whilst we were in that had recently started nursery and ended up so poorly. We've all got chesty coughs now. As a family we are all run down and worn out. I am writing this in tears. I don't know how to get my family well again. I don't see anything when I look ahead. I don't see normality anymore. I miss my friends, I miss taking my kids out, I miss having structure. My 4 year old is teary and emotional because she's stuck home as the weather's bad and we can't take little man out at the moment. To add to everything I've made the decision to reduce her nursery hours to just 5 a week. She was doing 14. I'm upset it's come to this as she loves nursery but something has to give. She isn't there half the time and as soon as she goes back she's poorly again. I can't justify paying £46 a month (She gets some funding) for her to not go. Also whilst we can't avoid all bugs and I know they catch stuff eventually, my baby has been through an awful week due to a virus turning into an infection. He's only 14 months old and he's had a good 10 colds and tonsilitis and now a nasty infection. He doesn't even go to nursery but he's dealing with what his sister brings home. Please tell me it will get better.
