Week Two In The Sick Babba House

By Alison November 19, 2007 16 Comments 1 Min Read


I can’t quite believe I’m about to type this, but Finley has been diagnosed with mumps (yes indeed: the disease that died out with effective innoculation and the plague)  again this morning… How in the name of all that is scrumptious is it even possible??

Do forgive me if things get a bit erratic around here while I administer tender loving care and Calpol. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there is no rest for the wicked and sadly I am as wicked as they come.


  1. La Chouette says:

    Oh la la. Poor Finley! I hope he recovers quickly with all your tender and loving care. Bon courage Alison!

  2. Oh how frustrating and, on the other hand, how good to know what the trouble is. Kids bounce back so quickly that I'm certain the mumps won't keep your little one down long. Don't worry about the blog and take care. We'll be right here when you get back.
    Oh, and I daresay that you're no more wicked than the rest of us. ;>

  3. Jenny says:

    Speedy recovery to Finley! And yes, please don't fret about the blog and your loyal readers, we'll be sending our good energy your way and wishing you well!

  4. Victoria says:

    Poor Finley, sending you both best wishes and a speedy recovery

  5. Anita says:

    AGAIN? You mean he's had them before? Poor, poor darling! I hope he gets well miraculously fast… 🙂

  6. Melanie says:

    Poor Finley, I hope he gets well soon, send him my love, bless him.

  7. Gill says:

    Poor Finn! I hope this round finishes them off for him and he NEVER gets it again. At least you still have some weeks before Christmas, by which time he will be better. (Thanks for your email the other day) Gill.

  8. Lisa says:

    Oh, that's terrible. How the days drag on when you have a sick one on your hands. Speedy recovery the second time around I hope.

  9. Lorrie says:

    Take time to care for your sweet Finley and yourself as well.

  10. Grace says:

    Poor little Fin! And poor you, for dealing with another round of sickness. I am thinking with all these sicknesses as a young child, perhaps he'll be a really healthy adult! LOL

  11. Gena says:

    Oh poor Fin and poor you! how long the days are when you are indoors with a poorly child, I hope he recovers quickly.

  12. Amy says:

    Good luck with that poor sick little sweetie.
    I think Mom's should get a proper raise in pay each 6 months!!!

  13. Anna Marie says:

    Get well soon Finn! At least he didn't get mumps like I did, right after I was potty-trained. Guess who had to be potty-trained all over again? My poor mum. Take care, Alison. It will be over soon.
    Best wishes,
    Anna Marie

  14. Ali says:

    Get well soon Finn!

  15. Nonnie says:

    Oh poor dear Finley. I hope he is feeling better soon. Lots of icecream is usually needed!

  16. Buffy says:

    I know someone who had chicken pox twice. I hope he feels better soon.
