This week my word of the week is sad. It doesn't really do my week justice because what I feel is much more than sad, but that is the word I wish to use.
First the half term holiday started with a poorly Boo,. That girl has been poorly so much since they went back to school. If wasn't being sick was bad enough we were also due out for a review of a local pub meal and play area which we had to cancel. So a fun day out was lost.
Then Star had a physio appointment which didn't go too well, she was really weak. Shortly after we got home she began burning up and also became ill. She has a throat infection. This is on top of the 'clear out' we are doing as advised by the hospital. That took a little while to get working, but we know it is now....please, no visitors!
So we've been cooped up all week, and it's not been much fun at all.
I have also had a visit to the GP after a nasty experience and it wasn't good news. I don't have all the facts yet, but I will be having tests and a CT scan and hoping that it's not as bad as the Dr thinks it might be.
Then my Other Half managed to hurt his back, he's not even sure how but he's been lying around moaning for two days now. I took him to a walk in surgery today (he's not registered with a GP) but he wasn't prepared to wait for 3 hours. Fingers crossed it starts to heal soon.
The saddest news of all was having to say goodbye to my lovely old cat Suzie who was diagnosed with a tumor last week. I was so glad we took her home for a few days after her diagnosis. She was still eating and drinking and going out into the garden. We had lots of cuddles, lots and lots of cuddles. But as soon as she started deteriorating I knew I couldn't let her suffer. I will miss her so much. Sad doesn't really cut it at all.
On a positive note, it's the weekend and the kids don't have to go back to school until Thursday! Things can only get better.
