Shrubby is next to me. She is sleeping mostly peacefully, right now. She keeps waking up and vomiting, though. Which is not good. Really not good. She's not even keeping water down. Am waiting for the callback from NHS Direct.

I think Mat saved her life.

We were watching This Week. I heard something, said Was that Shrubby? then we both heard her scream. Mat got upstairs first to find her on her bed, on her back, vomit pooling in her mouth. He had to persuade her to turn over and clear her mouth. She nearly did a Hendrix. My baby was laid on her back, with puke in her mouth, and Mat turned her over.

I am still shaking.

And then he's volunteered, VOLUNTEERED to go sleep in the other room so that I can be with her tonight.

I don't know what I did to deserve this wonderful man, but I'm bloody glad I did it.

*hugs and best wishes for all three of you*

I remember when [livejournal.com profile] little_jesus was sick when he was about two. It was difficult for me because there wasn't much I could do to help him, I could pretty much just be there for him. And he wasn't nearly as sick as Shrubby is.

I hope she gets well soon, with a minimum of any more symptoms.

Oh my goodness! I really hope she gets well soon. I think I was about her age when I got the chickenpox, and I still remember how utterly awful it was. =(

Poor little Shrubby; get well soon! I'm crossing my fingers and touching my solid oak bookcase as I type; you three are very much in my thoughts right now.

*big group hug*

Vince and Raymondo FTW last night by the way!

Poor Shrubby. I hope she is better soon. Mat is a great guy, and having seen you together of course you deserve him, you only have to meet you guys to know it's right!
