Eugh. Being ill on holiday is never nice. I came out on our road trip with a sinusy head cold that has never really shifted and came back full force this weekend with fever and chills etc. Not easy for Mike having do do more than his fair share of stuff. But, you know, we’re grown ups and we plough on.
But poor Bee got rather poorly before the weekend and ended up with Croup (the one with the barking cough – see vid.. And call Drs immediately if your little one barks like a seal!). Croup can be quite serious and need hospitalisation in some cases.
Luckily this happened while we were staying in Budapest close to Hungarian relatives, so they kindly helped us out getting a appointment (on a Saturday, because these things always happen to us on weekends or bank holidays. No exaggeration). Plus escorting us to said appointment and translating . We were so lucky it happened when it did, as it wouldn’t have been quite as simple using google translate! And it was great that we were somewhere we had a base for a few nights and not on one of our ‘travelling legs’ of the trip.
And for all of this we didn’t have to pay a penny, thanks to her EHIC – European Health Insurance Card. One of the many benefits of currently still being a member of the EU!
