Should I let him sleep?

Hi all,

DS (3.5) has a high temp and a headache. I gave him some Ibuprofen and he fell asleep about half an hour ago (5pm).

Do you think I should wake him up and see if he want some dinner and a drink or should I let him sleep and pop him up to bed in an hour?

Sorry for the dumb question but I never know what to do for the best in these situations!

Ask him but if he is sleepy and has high temp (as may want and need a drink ) but I wouldnt worry if sleeps on. Dd now of an age where will sleep bugs off so providing takes some fluids and medicine and temp not worse I would let him sleep.
