I feel so helpless and powerless. Columbus has been bitten. And he looked fine at first and he ate and he let me clean his wound and he’s sleeping now but then he didn’t want to have dinner, he didn’t even want cheese and I’m so worried. I’m just sitting here, watching him and crying and I feel so powerless and useless. I lied down next to him. Watching him. Praying. I just wish I could help him. I could protect him. I could heal him.
I cannot imagine what parents feel whose children are ill. It’s unbearable.
update this morning: Columbus had a good night sleep and he improved as the time passed and he left the room this morning, walking slowly, having breakfast.
