Over the past week Katie’s been having a bit of trouble with a tickly cough keeping her awake at night. While at first it seemed as though it would pass in a few days I thought that after a little bit of time it might be best to contact NHS Direct.
While I was certain everything was going to be okay, I thought that there could be no harm in checking; their tag line of ‘reassuring advice’ certainly convinced me anyway!
After a short time on the phone to one of the advisers I was assured that Katie’s cough was only going to be temporary, however if it continued for a few more days I should head to see the doctor.
Fortunately though, it turned out that the cough was nothing more than a bit of a virus she picked up which was causing her to have a sore throat. Phew!
Other than the cough, now she’s up and walking she’s become more of a handful than ever – you really can’t afford to turn your back for a second else you’ll be wondering where she’s got to! More than enough to keep me on my toes anyway!
