Very worried about ds2 age 4

Ds2 started 5 mornings at pre school in August and since then has been pretty much constantly ill since.
I know this can be normal, but he really is having a bad time of it...
He started back in April,and within 2 weeks had contracted hand, foot and mouth.
Then he got such a bad chest infection he ended up in hospital on nebs and 2 lots of ABs sad
He has had a cold/cough since he went back and on weds was very sick (very unlike him)
He was also complaining of sore limbs, and his feet were icy cold so took him to gp on thurs and the gp found a heart murmur.sad
Got to go back and see gp on thurs but since thurs he has had really bad nights and temps.
Last night he was awake hourly sad
Temp of over 38 degrees.
Crying, almost delirious talking about spiders etc....
Am thinking I should take him back to I being silly?
Or should I wait til go opens tomorrow morning?
Any advice gratefully recieved, thanks.

I think I would take him today if you can. If only to put your mind at rest.

Do you have an out of hours clinic near by?

I see you are worried enough to post twice. Definitely take him. Trust your instincts.

My DD also caught so many bugs when she started preschool, I think she spent the whole autumn/winter ill every other week. Luckily, shes started reception now and has only had a minor cold (crossing fingers!).

But obviously, whilst your son is ill, keep him off and let him rest.
