My M is home from school.....again. He came back from his weekend at dad's very underpar and has got worse since. This seems to be an all too familiar story in our house. Last night I spent most of the night up with M as he was sick everywhere and naturally enough today I have had barely a spark out of him.
So off we go again to the doctor for a 'check up' and again I am told.....'its a virus!!!' Script for getting my M better: rest, rest, rest, liquids, keep temp down blah blah blah.
As a mum I feel so helpless watching my little M continually be unwell and yet we try and keep him warm, rug him up, feed him nutritious foods, don't allow too much junk to be consumed......I am really at my wits end.
We have just started work with a tutor for him and here I am in week 2 having to cancel it - this frustrates me beyond belief. M canot really afford to miss time from school, he has issues with learning and this just exacerbates the problem.
He is due to commence 3 weeks school holidays at the end of this week, I question myself as to why we can't just get through to the end of term but here we are plugging through this final week.
Am I missing something here???? Am I failing him as a mum, should I be trying to do more, should I be demanding we see someone else ( I have tried several doctors).......
Here's hoping that tomorrow my M and I can do some phonics work at least...
