    I'm such a bad mother - we don't even have a thermometer
    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.
