Tigerlilly Quinn: My heart will burst

My heart will burst

On Friday evening Tom and I experienced our first health scare as parents resulting to a trip to the children's A&E department. All is fine thank god (he had an all over rash and uncontrollable crying which may just be a reaction to something. My bet is the 8 week inoculations he had a few days previously). The hospital told us we did the right thing to bring him in which was a relief as you cant help thinking there is a fine line between over cautious and just over the top. There were moments when I thought 'where is the adult here to tell me what to do? Surely its not me?!

What I have learnt from this experience is that worrying over your child's health is enough to give you a heart attack yourself.
Its obvious of course that you will love your child but you don't realise until you have one just how intense that feeling is. It feels like your heart will burst..
