being positive and calm

When you wake up cranky and scowling and focussing on the negative.  It is just a simple choice to think differently and concentrate on the positives.  But sometimes it does not seem that easy.  Falling into old habits.

It has been a challenging week with our little man being quite unwell with to me was so obviously whooping cough and being a bit disappointed and disheartend by my fellow medical colleagues.  I won't go into details but the history alone was enough.  Every hour during the night bubba is gripped by demon pertussis as he gasps for breath and then vomits.  Many changes of his linen and ours.  Precious breastmilk lost and soaking everything.  His poor little chest must be burning and that horrible taste that can get in your mouth.

Amazingly I passed my Paediatric exam. Scoring 83%  for the Diploma in Child Health.    Hmm where to go from here?

At the moment a little focus on self care.

Oh Jillian,

So sorry to hear little Che has been ill, I've just logged into your blog (it won't come automatically) so was shocked. I'll keep reading, need to hear he's ok again.
