Sick little Dexie

Ok, so you know how we've all been sick here for a month-and-a-half? (ridiculous I know, but just wait for the next story!)

Mid-last week Dexter developed a slight wheeze with his cold, which didn't seem to bother him much. After a terrible night with him waking frequently we took Dex to the doctor last Friday. The doc confirmed his wheeze and put him on ventolin to help. By Sunday morning (after another bad night) it was clear that the ventolin was doing nothing and his wheeze was getting really bad. We don't have doctors open here on a Sunday, so it was off to emergency at our local hospital (you might remember we were there only the week before with Evie's ears!)

The poor little thing! He was diagnosed with bronchiolitis, put on oxygen to help his breathing and admitted overnight. He's such a chipper chap - even though he was quite uncomfortable and sick, Dex still had amazing smiles for everyone and didn't stop wiggling and jiggling!

Long story short I stayed overnight with him, they weaned him off the oxygen by Monday morning and we were home by lunch-time. He is pretty much better now, just a few boogers!



I know these next two pics are blurry, but this lad just won't stay still for a photo, and he's sooo cute!


why yes, I was using a taped-up-blanket as a curtain in our room, how fancy!


ps - last night we had these falafel for dinner with these tortillas, delicious!!! (and very child friendly)

    1. I think they're tastier than the shop ones & really easy too. It just took me a few times of cooking to figure out the balance between just-cooked & too-crispy. hope you have success!!
