Huge Scariness

On Monday Atticus had a febrile convulsion. It was the most terrifying experience of my life and something I don't wish upon anyone. Thankfully he hasn't suffered any long term ill effects because of it and won't remember it at all. I, on the other hand, will not forget this quickly, if at all! I'm still feeling a little shaken by the whole thing even though it's been a few days now. Atticus has almost completely recovered now. He still had a very high temperature on Tuesday but yesterday it was better. Today he was much happier - a very different boy compared to Monday!

I'm a bit annoyed at writing this entry. I'd written one on Tuesday when I was still feeling emotionally exhausted and upset but I (stupidly) didn't save it and lost it :-( A symptom of my brain not working. I'm returning to work in less than two weeks and am quite worried about how I'll cope - Atti still wakes up during the night, at least once most nights, and he is very clingy at the moment. Hopefully when he's feeling better we'll be able to get him sleeping properly again. {sigh}
