Out of Routine

It's been a long 10 days with Noah going to school the first day after school holidays and not being back since. I couldn't put my finger on what was wrong with him as he wasn't acting 'sick' but I just knew he wasn't right, even during the school holidays so haven't been sending him to school even though he's not really 'sick'.  

We are doing a few different things to help him and he's picking up but still isn't right, so we will see if we can get through this week and go back to the doctor again next week. It's always a long day and week when Noah is home from school as it's more of an effort to get out, and it's nicer for him to just be able to rest at home. 

On Sunday Harri started complaining of a neck ache, and by Sunday night he was in tears with it.  On Monday morning he was just about to leave to go to school and burst into tears as he went to turn his head and still had a lot of pain.  I told him to stay home as well, so Kobe and I had both boys home with us yesterday. I rang our awesome chiropractor who fitted in Harri straight away and said his neck was very jammed up and had lots of inflammation and also said his pelvis was out and his hips had some rotation which wouldn't have been helping. She adjusted him and he was in pain the whole time and we are going back again tomorrow.

After going to the chiro we had a couple of jobs we needed to do, so I thought I'd attempt taking the three of them to Kmart and the supermarket just to get a few things.  It's always so easy when it's just me and Kobe as he just sits in the trolley and chats away the whole time, but taking the three of them without Jay was another story!

Harri was walking like a robot the whole time as he couldn't move his neck, and then started crying and complaining about pushing Kobe.   Noah is a lot harder to push than a trolley, so I ended up pushing Noah and pulling the trolley behind me as Harri dragged his feet behind us in tears the whole time as he held his neck. 

Aaron came home from work last night saying he wasn't feeling great, and this morning when his alarm went off he said he really wasn't feeling well and had stomach cramps.  He ended up being home all day today too and spent most of the day just laying either in bed or on the couch.

I did get to go out to the gym this morning as I got to leave Noah home with Aaron, but while I was there I got a phone call to go and pick up Harri from school as his neck was giving him a lot of pain.  He has been walking around like a robot all day as he can't move his neck very much.

It's already been a long week and it's only Tuesday! Hopefully everyone will start to pick up very soon and things will be back to 'normal' if there is such a thing! 


  1. That's no good that everyone isn't well - hope they pick up soon :)

  2. oh Lisa! So sorry to hear - I used to get "crick" necks when I was younger - they are so horrible - hopefully it will straighten out soon - apparantly change of season can affect it? Hoep Aaron and Noah get sorted soon too x Was feeling for you about the supermarket story - what a nightmare - any one offer to helpa t all??? thank goodness for all those muscle building gym sessions!

  3. You know what they say - that "bad" things come in three's... Now that you've had 3 unhappy ones home sick, hopefully that means it's reached it's peak and everyone will feel better real soon! Good luck!

    P.S. Harri's neck sounds like it hurts enough that this probably won't "fix" it, but maybe it will give it some temporary relief - have you ever tried a rice bag (a fabric bag filled with dry rice that you microwave for about 30 seconds and then set on the painful spot for some heat therapy)? I use my rice bag all the time and it feels so good!

  4. Aw, I'm sorry- hope everyone is on the mend soon! xoxox

  5. that is polly wally crappy. Hope you all come right soon x


We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
