I did not like this battle in my head

This morning, Monkey was still not well, he still had a temp over 38 and while he was still doing well in himself, he was subduded, while myself and my partner were trying to figure out what to do, Monkey made it very clear he did not want to be left by himself for a minute.

Which meant, I had a fight between wanting to go to work and my maternial instinct which had kicked into overdrive since yesterday.

I phoned in ill, well sort of, I phoned in and said I couldnt come in due to Monkey still being ill, he spent the day in bed, in various beds, sometimes in his, sometimes in mine curled up next to me. He hasnt been like that since he was tiny.

Luckly, he seems much better this evening, but he does tend to perk up during the evening and then go back down, so all we can do is wait.
