I've heard a friend who've said before "What can't kill you, can only make you stronger!"... well, I sure hope that this episode of the entire family (well, almost) taken ill will make me a stronger mom and person.
It's definitely not a very fun time we (hubby & I) have to put up with having no help at home and taking care of all the needs of the little ones... we didn't catch much sleep the past week as the kids couldn't sleep well either. Tim was coughing constantly and Little Missy's temperature was hovering around 40C for a couple of nights and would wake up a few times each night... then both kids will snooze throughout the day and refused to take their meals... when they were awake they'd watch TV all day long because I didn't have the energy to make sure they had something to do... gosh...
It was a nightmare - literally! Was glad to have finally made the decision to drag the kids to see the chinese physician at the TCM, after a few doses of the chinese medicine, they got better and today we've decided to put them back in school for half a day so that I could get some much needed rest as I've a workshop to run this weekend and I haven't got my voice back yet!!!
This time of being sick has taught me to be more conscientious about what I feed the kids (and myself) - more fresh fruits, vegetables & steamed/boiled dishes. To have a good habit of sleeping earlier each night and not overwork our bodies. Gotta take care now!
