I've just spent the last 20 mins stripping and showering J, I heard him coughing through the monitor then heard him being sick. Ran upstairs to find him and the bed covered. Vibes please for I hope it was just the coughing and not the sickness bug descending on us. Thankfully H is nightshift tonight so he can sleep with me. He's still coughing loads so I doubt either of us will get much sleep. He's had a little bit cough medicine, has vics on his feet and is lying on 2 pillows to prop him up a bit. Anything else I can do? I have a feeling he may puke all over my bed. Eugh, I feel rather queasy now.

Oh no! Fingers crossed it was the coughing and hope you both get some sleep, sounds like you are doing all the right things - maybe a wee sip of water too?

He's got a beaker of water next to him.

Bucket by the bed just in case? Hope it was a one off x

Good thinking, I'll take one up with me.

Ah bless him, hope it is just the coughing x

Towel on the pillow under his head? Just in case? Hope it was a one off.

Hope there were no more sick episodes last night & you both had good night's sleep.

Hope the sick episode was a one off, poor little love.

Thanks ladies, the sickness was just the result of him coughing loads and wasn't sick again. He did cough all night, I don't think we got more than 30 mins undisturbed sleep in one go due to him coughing. He tossed and turned all night and is knackered this morning as I had to get him up and drop him at my mams before coming in to work.
He was crying everytime he coughed so it must be really hurting his chest and throat, poor little man.

Hope his cough clears soon. It sucks having a bad cough as an adult, never mind as a kid.

Ah I know, its a real barking cough which sounds really painful.

Poor J, glad it seems to just be from his cough and not a bug - hope his cough is better soon xx
