How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Ridiculous JT, if he's not coughing at all, and has been immunised. Bearing in mind WC lasts months, is she saying she wont have him for months?? He is not sick, she cannot refuse to have him, and if she does, you dont pay her, simple! Except of course not so simple as you need childcare! If he's not coughing, he is not contagious to other children. Found this....
Your GP may prescribe a course of antibiotics if whooping cough is diagnosed during the first three weeks of the infection. This will prevent the infection being passed on to others.
It is important to take steps to avoid spreading the infection to others, particularly babies under six months of age.
Children with whooping cough should be kept away from school or nursery until after they have finished taking antibiotics for five days. The same advice applies to adults returning to work.
As a precaution, household members of someone with whooping cough may also be given antibiotics and a booster shot of the vaccine.
If whooping cough is not diagnosed until the later stages of infection, antibiotics will not usually be prescribed. The bacterium that causes whooping cough will have gone by this time so you will no longer be infectious and antibiotics will not make a difference to your symptoms at this stage.
The last paragraph basically implies that you wont be contagious anymore as you have had it for so long, therefore your household are not suddenly going to get it if they havent already, so really she shouldnt worry.
whoops - left the empty lolly stick from a Lindt chocolate carrot on the table beside the sofa. Bear in mind it's just a green bit of plastic - Louise "Columbo" Newcombe "who's been eating my chocolate carrots?" FFS she got the Lindt bunny and carrots at Easter. I shoved them in sideboard and incredibly didn't pinch them. Til last night. When I noticed they were dated June. Ooops. Well I wouldn't want her to be ill would I so........
Schoolgirl error that one EF, you've always got to dispose of the evidence when you eat the kids sweets. Preferably straight into the outside bin so there's no chance of them finding it .
JT - good to have a diagnosis I guess but sounds like whooping cough is a bugger to get rid of. Poor you! Sending lots of sympathy and get well soon vibes your way.
Camio - well done on the race. A half marathon with hills doesn't sound like any fun in my book so good on you for enduring it.
TattyB - 4 cats? Good luck with them. I got a bit carried away the other week and bought 3 extra fish - 2 to go in the new tank that my dad bought for the fat fantail goldfish that won't die (despite our previous appalling track record in keeping fish allive) and one for Lily's room as the other fish belonged to Issie and Lily wanted a pet of her own. So now we have 1 cat, 2 adults, 3 kids and 4 fish in our house - so definintely no room for any more kids or animals now!
So have just worked out that we've had 5 dry nights in a row with Issie since I mentioned on here last week that she was struggling to make it through the night . That's the longest dry spell we've ever had (without lifting) so I think (fingers crossed) she may have finally cracked it. Really hope so as my mum ordered Issie's new bed yesterday and it's one of those mid-sleeper beds with a ladder so I really don't want to have to change the sheets on one of those every day! Anna will then get Issie's bed as although she still fits the cot (just) she keeps pushing herself up and banging her head on the bars and waking herself up. Will be sad to see the cot go as really means she's not my little baby anymore. It's also the same cot we've used for all 3 girls so it really is the end of an era to be saying goodbye to it forever .
After today only 3 more days of work until I have a week and a day off ... can't wait!
OK, one of my more random requests....MM can you think of anywhere nr J17 of the M4 (chippenham) for my dad to meet us for breakfast next Sat morning? We are driving to Bristol with cat in car and need to hand him cat before driving on to our friends in Bristol for the wk end. Do you know any cafes nr there? Or a servce area?
Leigh Delamere services Caro just after Junction 17. Or Morrisons just at the end of the dual carriageway section of the A350 Jcn 17.
Am exhausted after morning of planting and not enough food. Pics up on FB of most recent garden. Needs more plants but getting too late to get them in now, so looking like spring to finish it off sadly. Pleased with it though. Time to go and eat some birthday cake, then I might go for a trot later when hubbie back.
Oh and OMG to JT. Whooping cough is a nightmare...Although refusing to look after kids is a bit steep from childminder?
Garden looks lovely, esp the path. Thanks for tips - have also discovered this place
http://www.allingtoncafe.co.uk/index.html just outside chippenham as well, which looks promising.
Yep allington is lovely just a bit further round the ring road. Probably 5 mins drive from motorway although it can back up a bit at the first roundabout. Shame we aren't here this weekend
Little 4 mile jaunt up the road and back at 8:15s. Nice to start running again after a week off but it does feel a bit odd, but that might be after 4 hours of planting this morning!! Achilles still a bit niggly though ...
Ha agree Camlo re pets...why give yourself extra work?! Can obv appreciate that some people like pets though. Hubby would love a cat.
JT - hope the cough is getting better? I have never heard whooping cough either.
Karen - good news for dry beds. It is Leilas last night in her toddler bed tonight too. She has a new single bed arriving tomorrow. We have ordered one with a trundle underneath that meets the level of the single bed to accomodate guests as our guest room will become the babies room in the next couple of months.
We are still having problems with Leila and wetting herself at preschool. Not sure what is going on, but am wondering if maybe she has an infection as it is really quite unlike her. Caro, was it M that had to have her urine checked recently? Did anything come back? Might have dreamt that bit though!
Anjelicals, is it just tiredness, or forgetting to go? We are having to race home with Martha, luckily we are close to school!
All this talk of whooping cough reminds me of the cough Alan and I had last winter, wonder if that's what it was, it gave both of us cough spasms and went on for an awfully long time. JT - hope you have had a better day today!
Camlo - hope you sort out a cheaper pressie than a washing machine!
EF - I'm always hiding the evidence, Martha can smell chocolate from 3 rooms away!
