Luke has been unwell for a few days now, after Emily and Ben were sick with the flu. Of course he has been the worst, and yesterday Neil made a doctor's appointment for him. With half an hour to go until the appointment, I decided to take him in early. His temperature was 40.1 deg Celsius, and he had had panadol and neurofen and it had gone up further.
When I got to the doctors he got even worse and was crying so they put me in the nurse's office to have a quick check-up with her and be n the airconditioning as it was getting hot. They then informed me that there had been two emergencies and so there were 6 people ahead of me! I was not best pleased, even thought I know it was no-one's fault. They juggled things and I only had to wait for 2 others in the end. The doctor is very thorough and decided to send him to the hospital for assessment as he had some crackles on his lungs.
So off we went at 5pm last night. We saw two doctors there, and had his oxygen sats checked and a urine sample etc, and were given some preventative antibiotics so thankfully we were home by 8.15 pm. He is much better today, so here's hoping we get a full night's sleep and he's even better tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
