I am currently in the hospital for the first time with my 8yr old daughter after being here with my 3yr old daughter for the first time 2 wks ago. They both have SC and have never ever had a crisis. Apparently there has been a virus going around called 'slapped cheek'??? This has been the worst experience of my whole life, I have my own long term health issues and mobility problems. Can anyone advise on their experience in....
*pain relief options in hospital
*Pain relief at home
*Dealing with schools and nursery
Feeling a bit desperate here, their father is not in the country (immigration) so doing this alone and am completely exhausted and in an incredible amount of pain myself.
Any advise and encouragement greatly appreciated.
