In Sickness & In Health

{written 11-15-12}

There's nothing worse than having a sick child. After two days of sickness with Peanut that then went on to invade Bug, I am worn out but happy to report that we survived.

Peanut got it much worse than Bug and as I laid on the couch with my sick little Boo Boo, I couldn't help but get upset. As a parent, I want to protect my child from everything. He was so pathetic slumped in my arms or doubled over using my leg as a pillow, I wanted nothing more than to wrap him in my arms, kiss his little pink cheeks and whisper my love you's over and over.

As he laid between my legs or sometimes even beside me radiating heat in the middle of the night, I could do nothing but stroke his hair and wish that it were me instead of him.

I had a horrible thought when I saw him place his hand on his stomach, what if he was having stomach pains or his apendix had burst and he doesn't yet have the ability to tell me his complaints?

Yes, I'm paranoid about appendicitis - my dad almost died from it. 

I couldn't help but think this would be the first of many illnesses, will it ever get easier?

  1. It hurts each and every time they get sick. You just feel so bad for them. It doesn't go away. Poor sweetie.

  2. It's the worst to see them so sick and feel so helpless! V's been sick twice so far and the most recent time I was away on a work trip so that was awful! :( At least once they get older they'll be better able to tell us what's going on with them. So glad your sweeties are doing better now!

  3. Big cyber hug to you mama. It hurts so much when they are sick and we have to watch helplessly

  4. I'm so happy they are better. Looking at the photo makes me just want to hug and kiss them and make it all better, too. Such hard times to go through, mama. As hard as it is for you, I hope you realize how important you are to them and are SO comforted by you being there and getting them through these times. They are so fortunate to have you and B.

  5. Oh, my. That picture is precious and heartbreaking all at the same time!

    Two and a half years in, I can say, for me, that it stills is one of the worst things in the world to see them sick. I have stopped moving into "worst case scenario" mode every time, though. That's progress, right??

    Hope everyone is on the mend and that you all have a wonderful, healthy Thanksgiving!

  6. Hope he is feeling better and that you didn't get it. Being a twin mom I think is harder because we have to feel this much love at the same time. I love your blog and I am your newest follower. :) Swing on by if you feel like it.
