I'm sick! I've got myself a cold and cough so couldn't go into hospital with Meg for her chemo. Phil's had to take her which is absolutely fine; I know Meg will be very well taken care of by her Daddy. It's just me! I feel really weird not being with her. I keep texting and calling to talk to her; it's so frustrating. I know it couldn't be helped, getting sick, but I still feel like I'm letting her down by not being there. I just like to know exactly what's happening and make sure they don't forget anything....silly I know.... I can't even visit because the ward staff have told me not to visit until I'm well. I thought I was feeling a bit better yesterday, but I've woken up this morning feeling really wretched, and have a temp of 38, so I'm hoping this is the worst day and I start to improve quickly so I can be with Meg. Apparently it's a problem for a number of parents on ward 3B at the moment. There's a nasty strain of the cold going around and it could be very serious for the children if they got it as they're all immuno-compromised. I think I'll go down to the hospital anyway and wavethrough the window to her from outside - I might not be the only parent there!
So, if you have any miracle remedies to get rid of a cold quickly, please pass them on! Thanks!
