Rocket to space

For a moment today, time stands still — but you can tweak one thing while it’s stopped. What do you do?

Yesterday my son ate a plateful of fish and had a terrible allergic reaction to it. He was vomiting all afternoon. I had to give him a Motilium suppository to stop him from vomiting. My husband was not at home and I was panicking because I’ve never seen him so sick. His doctor doesn’t take calls and only responds to messages and I needed an immediate answer. So I took him to the emergency of another clinic where the doctor told me to give him another suppository after 6 hours and if he kept on vomiting till the next day I should take him to the hospital for an IV.

Thankfully he didn’t vomit again and I didn’t even have to repeat the suppository. At dinner time he managed to retain a bread roll and some juice. He slept through the night and today he is his normal chatty self.

If time had stood still yesterday I would have removed the plate of fish and replaced it with chicken.

On a lighter note when I tried to give him the suppository he was comparing himself to the big bad wolf. The three little pigs put a rocket on his tail and sent him to outer space.

“I don’t want to go to another planet”, said my nearly 4 yr old as he tearfully refused the medicine.

  1. I know it was scary, but thank goodness it was only vomiting, and not anaphylactic shock!

    So sorry the little tyke had to go through that 😦

    Glad to hear he’s feeling much better… kids are so resilient, the illnesses are over and forgotten LONG before mom is over seeing them being sick!

  2. I’m glad to hear that all turned out well – what a horrible situation for you both. Perhaps you should consider having some allergy tests done in the future because it could be a very serious problem undetected. Poor child and panic stricken mom! Thankfully you are both well and better today. Take care 🙂
