02-06-2008, 01:29 PM
Not whilst in my care fortunately but...

M who I have Tues and Thurs has just been rushed off in an ambulance because she is having trouble breathing :(

I feel ill I am so worried.

They live 5 doors away and Mum text me for advice as M couldnt breathe so I popped round and she was really struggling bless her so we called an ambulance and they have taken her straight in on oxygen.

She is 5 days older than Ella and I have known her since she was born.

I wish I could of gone too but I have a mindee here until 5.15pm.

oh you poor thing, you must be worried sick, have a cup of tea and sit down. i'm sure the mum will let you know how shes going.
Had she been ill or was it out of the blue?

02-06-2008, 01:35 PM
Nope, just out of the blue.

She was fine this morning as Mum rung and asked me to have her for 3 hours this afternoon as she was getting her hair done. She would never of done that if M was poorly.

Its a really awful feeling when a child you care about gets admitted to hospital, you feel so helpless.

Let us know how it goes.

02-06-2008, 02:47 PM
Hope young one is ok? How worrying and frightening. Its sounds like asthma. Try not to worry LO is in the best possible possible place.

02-06-2008, 02:50 PM
oh poor little mite. hope she's home and better soon.

keep us informed!


02-06-2008, 03:13 PM
:eek: Any new yet?

02-06-2008, 03:19 PM
No, no news yet.

Mum and Dad mobiles are turned off so they must still be at the hospital.

Poor mite, I think it is asthma too. She has never shown signs of it before but my eldest DD has it quite badly and I saw similarities.

Will keep you posted.

02-06-2008, 03:21 PM
Just catching up - how awful!

I hope she's getting better xx

02-06-2008, 03:27 PM
Oh my gosh :eek:

Only just read this after getting back home from the school run. I hope she's ok Debbie. What a huge shock for everyone. Sending hugs your way.

02-06-2008, 03:27 PM
Poor wee thing. Hope shes okay and it is something simple

02-06-2008, 04:23 PM
I hope all is well, please let us know as soon as you do xx

02-06-2008, 04:31 PM
Just catching up Debbie. I hope the little one is ok (and you too) It must have been a real shock for you to see her like that. Like Pip said, she's in the best possible place now and I'm sure they'll get to the bottom of it quickly

Thanks all

Dad has just called.

They thought she had something stuck in her throat but they did an x-ray and couldnt see anything so now they think she has had an allergic reaction to something but they dont know what.

They havent decided if they are keeping her in overnight or not yet as apparently her lungs are fine so she will get better on her own :eek:

Dad said they will be in touch again later to let me know. I am meant to have her tomorrow, not too sure how I feel about this to be honest :(

02-06-2008, 04:40 PM
Only just come on the computer now the kids have gone home.

I'm sorry to hear about lo. Have you had any news on how she is yet?


02-06-2008, 04:41 PM
oh bless her :littleangel: also wanted to send you big hugs .hope she gets well soon x

02-06-2008, 04:49 PM
Any update Debbie?

02-06-2008, 04:57 PM
I know i'd be feeling nervous about having her tomorrow. glad she is ok now. hope they can find out if it's an allergy and what to. if I were you i'd just feed her exactly what she's had with you before.

02-06-2008, 05:25 PM
Fortunately, I dont provide any of her food. She does have a lot of peanut butter so I am wondering if it is a nut allergy?? But then she has had oit before.

I am hoping MUm keeps her home tomorrow though TBH.

02-06-2008, 05:32 PM
sorry to here this poor thing

Allergies can come at any time, even if been okay before, this is why they don't recommend it before 5 years (as in nuts ect.)

I would say no for tomorrow TBH and would be surprised if after todays events if the parent still would go to work:o

sending you big hugs xxxxxxxx

02-06-2008, 05:36 PM
Sorry, just catching up.

How frightening for everyone.

It is so frustrating when the hospital can't find the cause of a something like this. I hope they are going to investigate further and not just 'wait and see if it happens again!'

I hope she recovers quickly.
I would want the little girl to stay home for a few days before I minded her again if it was me. She must have been so terrified. :panic:

02-06-2008, 05:36 PM
I think I would say no for tomorrow too, just to give her time to recover. Hope she gets well soon.

I think Mum will keep her home tomorrow. She is a Mummy Mum and not a career driven person IYSWIM. M is only 21 months :(

It has always worried me the nut thing so young but it wasnt me providing it. DH had a reaction to a snickers bar 2 years ago, he had been fine for 31 years before that!

02-06-2008, 06:02 PM
I have a nut allergy, I didn't develop it until I was 29. I struggle to breathe if I had nuts or traces of nuts. It's very scary.

Between the ages of 13 and 20 and had a real bad allergy to strawberries, just seem to dissapear when I was pregnant and had a craving for strawberries that I gave in to! they were yummy and I've been able to eat them ever since.

02-06-2008, 06:10 PM
Hope your mindee is soon fit and well.

Sending you a big hug too xxxx

02-06-2008, 06:14 PM

Just caught your thread, glad she is ok, i think it sounds like mum will keep her at home tomorrow.

02-06-2008, 06:33 PM
oh bless, hope all ok tho hun

02-06-2008, 07:03 PM
Relief all round, it is severe tonsisitis poor little mite.

02-06-2008, 07:07 PM
Just catching up Debbie. How scary but glad they have discovered the cause.

02-06-2008, 07:31 PM
Sorry only just got on since this morning,

How awful for you all. Poor little soul, at least they've found out what it is.

Hope she's feeling better very soon

I have not been on all day either so just catching up

Glad they found out what it was .... hope the lo makes a speedy recovery

Angel xx

02-06-2008, 07:43 PM
I've only just come on here too. Sorry to hear about your mindee, glad they know what it is now and that she is on the mend. Tonsilitis seems to be getting really bad at the moment, I've heard of a few people recently who have been hospitalised with it, but none as young as your mindee. It must have been really scary for her.
Hope she feels much better soon

02-06-2008, 07:54 PM
Glad they sorted out what it is, did she have to stay in?

02-06-2008, 08:57 PM
how scary, glad lo is ok now


02-06-2008, 09:07 PM
You must have been so worried. It happened to us with my own daughter last month. Rushed to A&E in the middle of night because she can't breath (she is only 8 months old). We stayed 2 days (her on oxygen for a day) and the doctors told us 'wait and see if it happens again, we can't diagnose asthma before they are 3!!' Still she now has an inhaler!

Anyway, they must be so relieved it is Tonsilitis and nothing like a life condition (ie allergies, asthma...).
Glad she will be ok!!

Just catching up. I am glad that they know what it is now and can treat it. I also know some people who have had very severe tonsilitis recently. Nasty shock for everyone. Hope she gets better soon.
