My brave little witch

... Oh well, here we go... Lucas' tonsilitis has a new companion: stomatitis. He had it once back in 2005, and gods know why here is this f* thing again. How I wish I could be in his place.

The last two days he's taking beans & meat soup through a straw, with tears in his eyes. I have to softly insist so he takes as much as his sored mouth full of thrushs can bear, while I hold my own tears. I hate seeing him like that. He's so brave, understanding he needs to drink his milk and soup so he won't get weaker.

I only managed to book an appoitment with my niece's doctor for tomorrow, so in the meantime he's taking nistatina for his mouth and amoxilin for his throat. To compensate his lack of regular meals, I'm also giving Pediasure, everything under the doctor's advice by phone (I must be her nightmare). I'll ask her to see what can be done to reinforce his immuno system. A new homeopathy treatment, maybe. I'm so upset, because he has such a healthy nourishment, I'm so careful with that, and luckly he eats everything, except mango, gourd and gilo (wiht his colorful meals, these won't be missed).

Right now he's sleeping with a bunch of his stuffed animals, after crying a bit in his dreamland, probably in pain, so I gave him a spoon of Alivium so he can have a decent night. I just can't sleep right now, almost 1am, so sorry for him...

But as I told him today, this will pass, it's only a hard time, and soon he'll be back to school, to his capoeira classes, we'll play outside in the sun, he just need to wait a little bit longer this time. Ah, Holly: his tonsils are too tiny to be removed, or they would have been already *sigh*

And as I always tell myself, moms should get an extra heart the moment our babies are born - actually we all should get that for moments when the ones we love are suffering...

Wow - you are 2 hours ahead of me. That suprises me. How you are feeling does not. Just about all mothers feel like this when our little ones are miserable. I hope he feels better soon. Tell him the people from Michigan wish him well.

Ohhhhh Nydia!! There is nothing worse than our little ones being sick and us feeling so helpless. We wish we could take their suffering onto ourselves.
Sounds like you're doing a great job though, keeping him hydrated & fed & medicated.
It is heartbreaking, but like you told Lucas, it will pass and he'll feel better soon.
Don't forget to take care of yourself too!!

Elder tea is good for ANY condition that ends in 'itis'...that means its inflamed, and that is what elder bark is best at treating.

Can you get rosehips easily where you're at? Rosehip tea tastes great and is a FANTASTIC immune system booster--those little hips are packed full of vitamins!! They are also generally safe for people of all ages. ^_^

Poor Lucas - and poor you! How it hurts when we can't stop our babies hurting! Soon your brave son will be well again, but I know that doesn't help either of you right now. Hugs from Ireland for you both.

Oh, poor baby boy! Thrush is so incredibly painful, I do hope he's feeling better now. I'm positive he is with a dedicated mommy like you.

I shall light a candle for him anyway...even if I am quite late. :)
