Doctors Dash

Poor little Caleb has been very ill this week with flu, hence combined with Christmas and problems at home I haven't had a lot of  time for blogging. 

On Thursday of last week he started to take a bit of a sniffle and as my Husband was sick with flu we assumed he'd get the same symptoms as him, cold like and achy with a bit of a temp, and he seemed not too unwell in the morning. Come Thursday afternoon he started to look worse and by 2pm I couldn't keep him awake. I checked his temperature and it was 39.2and I couldn't get him to come round at all. I put him in his cot and called the Doctors. They said to bring him down straight away. I was shaking and terrified as despite having very high temps before I've never not been able to wake him. 

I woke Hubby who was in bed with his flu and said he would have to drive us to the Doctors as I couldn't strap Caleb in unconscious so I sat in the back with him on my lap. As we drove the mile to the surgery he started to come round a bit and started talking to me. By the time we got to the doctors he was a bit more lucid. The doctor checked him over and said she was pretty confident it was flu and its just the usual treatments they were advising of Calpol for his temp and plenty of fluid but if he got any worse to take him to the hospital straight away. 

We got him home and tucked him up on the Sofa. I think it took me 2 hours to stop shaking.

Mummys poor baby

Taking his own Temperature before bed. 

It's been a rough few days and made worse by me coming down with it on Saturday too. 


  1. I can't believe how many people are coming down with the flu and terrible colds at the moment. Roll on summer I say! Hope you all get better really soon.

  2. Thanks lovely. I hope so too. Feeling a bit like death.

  3. Poor Caleb! I hope he is feeling much better soon.
