So it’s Christmas Eve eve and we have made it through this mad week! T finished school Tuesday and had a sleepover at her friends house until Wednesday. They had a really fun day all day Wednesday making Christmas crafts and playing at an indoor play.
I finished work Wednesday after a really funny secret Santa and Christmas buffet where I must have eaten my own body weight in sugary foods! (Cue workouts beginning again soon) I left work with a chalk board mug and gave out a novelty apron of a speedo clad man to a friend which they didn’t take off all day 😂
Thursday was all great, me and T had done the Christmas food shopping and had a friend round for coffee, presents and mince pies with their two children. We had a great afternoon catching up and entertaining little Kaleb who is into everything!
The evening was not so great. T is very funny about blood, injections and anything else like that. When she had her booster injection before starting school she fainted and had to be laid down in the nurses room for a little while, when her first few teeth came out she would almost faint with the blood and when she saw me have a blood test when I was in hospital last year she nearly fainted. This is said it’s been over a year since anything like this happened so I thought we were over it. Then Thursday evening she comes to me with a little cut on her finger, I go to get a plaster and by the time I come back she is hyperventilating, I try to calm her down but she goes pale and collapses on me in the kitchen. She is only out a couple of seconds but it’s the most scary thing seeing your childs eyes roll and watching them struggle not to choke on their tongue. So she came round and we got up off the kitchen floor and moved to the sofa where she fainted again and then was sick. After this it was like she was back in the room suddenly she was with it and everything was fine. Poor T had a bad headache and was very tired for the rest of the evening falling asleep on me watching The Grinch, something she’s not done in a long time.
I now know I shouldn’t have moved her from the kitchen floor so quickly after she fainted the first time so this is probably why she went again. I just thought get off the floor and away from the bin she had knocked over but moving too quickly can cause fainting again I now know.
It’s clear she has no control over this and no amount of me saying ‘You’re ok, come on, you’re alright’ will help once she is like this I just need to try and find out the best thing to do when it happens.
Yesterday she woke up much better, she was just hungry! 😊 She spent the day with her Dad and we met again at her last riding lesson of the year where she tried really hard even though she was on her own! Today I can’t wait to get her back home because then I know she is home for Christmas. One more person and our little family will all be here- Scott is on 12 hour days until tomorrow when he gets home at
6 for Christmas!
