Hope 2017 is treating you well.
The last month or so has been crazy for us. Just before Xmas Evelyn fell ill and on Christmas day her temperature rocketed so we took her to the doctors at out of hours and then were refereed to the pediatric day assessment unit at the hospital. To cut a long day short it turned out that she has a respiratory infection and tonsillitis. Except for during the first few weeks after Evelyn was born I’m not sure I had felt so needed. A couple of days before going to the doctors Evelyn started to stop eating solids and also wouldn’t take expressed milk from a bottle; this meant she was feeding like a newborn again…
