Illness hits the Cairns house

Over the past 10 days or so Luke, Jen and I have all been sick. Jen had a tooth abscess , which required  emergency surgery last Sunday. I had a flu/cold thing going on. Luke was the most ill of us all. Not only were molars coming in but he caught a bout of gastroenteritis.

Last Friday Luke lost his appetite and started to refuse water. He awoke on Saturday and was very ill indeed. By Sunday he seemed to be getting a bit better but wasn’t drinking. On Monday after 2 days of not drinking we brought him into emergency. They almost admitted him but let him go home provided we followed their instructions for getting fluids into him. Monday and Tuesday were tough days, but finally Luke started eating and drinking on his own again – quite a relief!

Here are some of the better pictures we took over the week



But Luke still managed to find time to play in the sun
