All Change

So we get the Count sorted out sleepwise - that allnighter was a oneoff but he's been pretty good only waking up at 3.30 and again at 6, and what happens? The FB comes down with something and is up all night crying because of stomach cramps until eventually at 7am we take him to A&E to have him checked out. Of course as soon as we enter the hospital grounds he cheers up and is back to his normal self by the time any medical people see him. And he's fine..all day until half an hour ago when the Count fell asleep and the FB started crying in pain in his sleep again..

I'm off to print out a copy of the Geneva Convention which I shall then read to both boys emphasising the illegality of sleep deprivation.

(there is a plus side to this though, the FB has finally started taking calpol at home. In the past the only way to get him to take it was either to have nurses administer it, or disguise it in yogurt or pink milk)

Oh no! Poor FB, I hope he's feeling better soon and you can get some rest.

You really are in the thick of it, aren't you? Just catching up on your posts after a week, a busy little writer you have been too! Glad you have found a new house, good luck with the moving and stuff!

Eek! Poor you. When my kids have been going through a bad sleep phase, I've been known to swig their Medised and let hubby get on with it. Just a thought....

I wonder what is going on in the statosphere? SG has had some stomach bug thingy too, & then there is Rosey over at Days Go By.
Hope the little fella keeps up the good sleeping!
Annd hope FB is ok.

They can be so heartless. I hope FB recovers soon!

He's feeling much better, thank you all for you good wishes. So far, and (imagine here I am touching wood) he hasn't cried out this evening.
