The month of October is here and I can’t quite believe how close to the end of this year we are. 2017 is less than 3 months away.

It’s been a hard year. The worse part was when my youngest had her left tibia fractured. The worst 24 hours ever…

I had to rely on doctors and specialist around my daughter and I. And believe me Romanian hospitals are at the opposite poll from the British ones. Nurses and doctors are still acting like they are doing us a favour by acting nasty at times and by letting us wait for hours on end.

Thank goodness Anastasia’s cast is now off and although she still has a long road ahead before walking and running like she used to  I am happy to see her going back to her old self.

I feel like with her I never been able to stop the bad things… Ever since she was only four days old she was put through the worse. At 3 months old she had chicken pox.  When she was 18 months old she had to go in the hospital with enterocolitis. And this year it’s been an endless list of colds, throat infections, stomach bugs, pinworms infestation and the hype the tibia fracture.

On top of that she is still prone to little accidents – she seems to always bang her head, bite her tongue or lip and yesterday she even burn her thumb. I left the nightlight on and she put her thumb on the bulb.

I know that most of the above is because she started nursery a year ago but I still feel like I am failing my child sometimes. This is why I feel like I always need to protect and spoil her. I have a constant fear when it comes to her… I mean I was unable to protect her from that bike when she was standing only half a metre away from me. How can I not try and protect her from everything else?

I just hope that everything will go back to normal and soon she will be a normal child with normal illnesses like her eldest sister.

So although this year is almost close to the end I am actually happy it is. I am looking forward to start afresh if possible.


How was this year for you?
