My wee girl was up all night last night being sick, and has not been in a good way all day today. She has been lying on the sofa all day drifting in and out of sleep, mild temperature and generally feeling a bit rubbish. I've felt so guilty all day as all I've wanted to do is to let her cuddle into me and sleep, just as any mum would. However, as I'm now on a biologic and have been told I should stay away from anyone with an actively contagious illness, I've been so wary about spending loads of time close to her whilst she's ill. If she's asked for a hug, I've hugged her for a short time then reluctantly had to let her go. It goes against every instinct I have as her mum. Just feel so guilty that I'm not being the mum I should be to her at the moment.
