This is just a quick post for those who wanted to know why I have been inactive for so many days when I was away to India. I usually post photos on social even when I’m away but this time we had small trips planned to couple of places – Vaishno Devi in Jammu & Kashmir as well as Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab. Everything went well except I had a small injury where my toe nail came off when we reached Amritsar. It later had a small infection which was treated and is now on the mend.
Secondly, my son caught ChickenPox Virus even after vaccination. As per doctors, vaccination helped it to keep the condition under control and thankfully he didn’t get blisters on face. His scalp as well as body still has dried spots and I remember he has been crying a lot due to discomfort during this trip. Above all, the temperature was 35 Degree Celcius which is a bit too much for a child born in the UK!
As if this was not enough, he also caught Diarrhea later but this was understandable due to change in weather, place, pollution and what not! The diarrhea was not too bad though so we decided to deal with it by taking all precautions and keeping him hydrated etc. This explains my absence from social media and blog while I was abroad.
However, after coming back to the UK, my son’s diarrhea became worse followed by vomiting. I’m cleaning him more than 6 times every hour if he is awake and dealing with soiled bedsheets, blankets, pyjamas too (Yes, Glamorous life of a Mum!).
No, this is not it! Surprise, Surprise !!! My husband has been confirmed Chicken Pox now and has got really bad one. He has got blisters all over and has been told to take rest, stay away from us and that means its only me who has to take care of both of them, sort out food, cleaning, buy medicines, take them to Doctor when I don’t drive. Our close friends live in another city and our families live abroad which means I imagine sleepless nights trying to do multiple tasks.
Someone asked me about medicines..GPs in the UK do not prescribe anything except Paracetamol unless you’re dying. Welcome to England!
We overall had a lovely time with family abroad but our son always gets unwell whenever we visit there. His vaccinations are up to date, we carry his milk and water every time we visit abroad but sometimes things are not in our control. We can’t change air or weather. It is sad that even though we were born abroad and love to go back whenever we get a chance, our son is just not okay there health-wise.
On other note, the photo above was taken early this year in Spain. I couldn’t find a good family pic from our recent trip.
p.s. Scheduled blog posts will go live as usual but posts on Social media may be selective for some days.
Please do not write sympathetic comments but any ideas/suggestions to improve anything or sharing about someone you know who had similar experience would be great.
Until next time.
