The rantings and ravings of a stressed woman...

stress relief
Ever had a week that you just want to walk away from? This week I could sure use some of the potions pictured above!

As you may remember we had some issues with my youngest daughter, Paula and a chronic cough, which I posted about here. Well unfortunately her cough flared up again quite some time ago and it just won't clear up this time round. To complicate matters, she has also developed a chronically inflamed throat as well as recurrent oral thrush (as a result of her inhaler). We have been to the lung specialist (twice), to a homeopath and to our family doctor, more times than I care to think about, and we seem to be getting nowhere. The poor child has had more medicine thrown down her throat in the last 3 months than I have probably consumed in my entire life!
We saw our family doctor this morning and he has referred us to an ENT specialist, who we will visit tomorrow morning. Here's hoping he comes up with something encouraging...
To add fuel to the fire, Paula began complaining of back ache about a week ago, so while we were at the doctor this morning we had him take a look at her back and he says there is a possibility that she has scoliosis and has arranged for us to have x-rays done. Please no!
The final cherry on top is that Roxy begins writing her school leaving exams .in.five.weeks.time.
Deep breath.............
