Feverish

By saturday lunchtime we knew he wasn’t well – he had a fever of 39.2. The last two days have been difficult, with alternating Calpol and Nurofen syrup to keep the fever down. Though off his food, he’s had milk.
It is really awful to feel so powerless. There’s nothing we can do for him – his immune system has to cope with it. Though we know it will end and he will be fine, it doesn’t change the feelings of helplessness at the time.
