Syd has been poorly. In fact so have me and my man. But Syd has been really rather poorly. Sick, and poo that sloshed and totally lethargic, and on top of that he has a throat infection.
He had breakfast on Friday, and then ate nothing for four and a half days. I had been getting fed up of breast feeding, but seeing as he would eat or drink nothing else the last few days I am grateful that he would still gain some fluid and nutrition via the boob.
Finally gave in and visited the docs today. In a none too surprising turn of events, they have diagnosed it as viral, and as such we can only wait for him to feel better.
It is horrid when they are poorly. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make him feel better.
But this evening there has been a minor breakthrough. Syd has eaten a quaver. Four quavers in fact. Now I know the cheesy maize based snack food is hardly brimming with nutritional benefits, but it is a start, I am just delighted to see this small sign of improvement. We will worry about vegetables in a day or two!
