This happened.

Things didnt stay the same last week. 
Tuesday, I didnt feel right, but I could not put my finger on why. I had had a pretty full weekend while my breathing was playing up. So Tuesday afternoon, I gave up and went to bed for a couple of hours.

When I woke, my stomach was a mass of red spots, that was spreading to my arms and legs. This lead to am emergency trip to the doctors, but not much came of it as we are still unsure what is causing it. The guess is that it is either viral or measels. I have been vaccinated, but I have also had it twice before, including once when I was 6 weeks old and should have had my mums protection.

The last few days have included plenty of sleep, the best way to escape the itch that plagues me all day and night. I have been taking lots of anti histamines to take the itch away, but I have taken to lying on the cold titles of the kitchen floor and using a bottle of baby oil spray that I keep in the fridge.

Today though, the rash has seemed to break a little. I find the more I move, the worse it gets. So I have stayed pretty still and it is begining to fade, which is great news. Plus, I am not meant to leave the house anyway until the rash is cleared.

But I have the weekend to recover. And next week is going to be a better week. I get my nebuliser on Monday. That has set me back a lot of money eekk. But if it means I can stay on top of my nebs and not take all day, then yay. Plus it has to be quieter.

Time for more sleep anyway. Hopfully by tomorrow morning, the rash will be gone.
