My baby girl has measles.
She is covered in tiny spots.
I spent three hours in A&E whilst they made sure it was just measles. Public Health England have had to be notified.
She is waking throughout the night. At times she is waking every thirty minutes, sometimes it’s every fifteen. We are both exhausted.
She is uncomfortable. She wants to be held constantly.
We are house bound for at least a week, probably longer.
I’ve had to cancel her first birthday party.
And all of this was preventable.
