    I can't jump in the car, as I have had one too many - just quietly, and they are 2.5 hours away....................
    Gwamma is a little woriied. I remember when I had a temp of 41.2C - I t'was not a well girl......... and 39.9C aint far behind.................
    Ooof. Things will be okay. Truly. And we are here with you. Truly. The kiddliewinks are robust little things, they really are, but of course we worry. And the whole world shrinks to the size of a pea in comparison to the size of our worry.
    I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

    • Badger I know - and the pamol will kick in, and the daughter who is a border line hypercondriac/drama queen possibly hasn't told the whole truth and nothing but the truth.....................But I promise that I will NOT get in the car and drive........................

        I'm such a bad mother - we don't even have a thermometer - nothing small boy has had has ever been 'emergency' as far as I or my mother would have recognised it, but husband is uber cautious so it is I often learn after the fact that I should have been concerned... And then *THE GUILT*.

        Small children often fit at high temps (ours has) paracetamol, ibruprofen, cold compress, no clothes... kid gets better. It's super scary, but it's usually okay. Good to get checked out though.

        • hang in there G. there prob isnt much you can do in person if you do make it to timaru, other than fret even more. having dealt with a fair bit of drama in the whanau of recent i can say sometimes you are better off finding out about it after it is all a done deal as you have no control and the last thing you need is the stess of waiting the outcomes.

          • That is scary, Gwamma, but he is now where he needs to be to get well. So please, do not drive, you don't want to add to everyone's problems. Sending a prayer your way. A.

              me too and my kids have never had vaccines, anti biotics or paracetemol in their lives. my youngest has never even been to a doctor. since they both had measles about 3 years ago, they have not had any nasty fevers at all. they never really had many, none of which were nasty so all i used to do was stuff them full of sodium ascorbate and cold compress their heads and feet.

              • Thanx Badger - I don't think that you are a bad mother, maybe your sixth sense was tuned in, as i think that mine was ???????
                but then I am a hero.............................. Kids do fit at high temp, and no amount of advice sinks in with this particular DD -
                oh the stories I could tell..................... i shall leave it for another day !!!!!!

                  • Gwamma, I hope you (and all) are sleeping peacefully. G, I was one of those kids that when my temp went up, it really went up. And my folks usually cooled me down like Badgergirl said. Cold compresses and cold water to drink. I actually spiked a temp that high in my teens once. Grandbaby will surely be fine.

                    P.S. I had to google the temp so I could have a reference to F.

                      • it always has so far. i do have a line and we have yet to cross it. i am a bit more neurotic about the kids than i am about myself. i am pleased he is feeling better G. it must have been a relief.

                        • just spoken to DD - and they headed home at about 2am, after his temp came down. The Doctors have no idea what was wrong - so suggested a virus - that is quite a broad wee answer.
                          Hopefully they will all get some sleep, and everyone in there household will wake up fine and dandy !!!!!!

                          • Phew, glad they can go home though. Very vague answer is not terribly helpful, but better than a diagnosis of something serious. May they sleep well, and you have a good day.
