My first trip to the Hospital


After I finished my blog last night before bed and had my bottle, I had an hours sleep only to wake up and vomit everywhere again.  Daddy cleaned me up and mummy cleaned up the mess, thank you mummy and daddy.  They checked my temperature and it was very high again and I was burning up so they decided to drive me to the Hammersmith Hospital.  They were really good there, we only had to wait a couple of mins and the nurse put something in my ear and gave me some medicine. I didn’t like it at all, these strangers touching me! Daddy held me very close and tried to reassure me it was going to be ok and that they were very nice strangers.

Then we saw the doctor and he tried to look down my throat and check my breathing with a very cold round thing.  I didn’t like this either and I screamed and cried very loudly.  Luckily my temperature started to come down and I was feeling a little bit sleepy.  The doctor told me my throat was quite red and it could be a throat infection, so he wrote out a prescription for a bunch of medicines.  I hate taking medicine!! It tastes disgusting, YUCK! Poor mummy has to wrestle me down like a crocodile just to get some of it in my mouth.

When we got home I went to straight sleep and had a nice big sleep in this morning.  I am feeling a bit better.  Mummy said we won’t be going to swimming lessons today 😦 It’s not very nice outside either so I think we are going to have a warm doona day inside. I hope I perk up a bit for Australia Day tomorrow.

About Harlow London Stanley

With a lot of help from my mummy, I am writing this blog to help my friends and family stay in touch with me when we move to London in a few weeks. I am going to miss everyone and I am not very good at writing emails and I can't talk yet, so skype can be difficult. So we thought this would be the most fun way for everyone to see what I am up to. At the moment I am almost 6 months old so there are few big milestones ahead of me, teeth, crawling, walking and talking are just a few that I hope to master this year. All of my family will be home in Australia and will miss these amazing moments, so I promise to post them with pictures, videos and little diary entries as soon as they happen.
