Started with ds,10 with vomiting bug. Then he had a nasty croupy cough for 8 weeks and another bout of sickness. GP did blood tests and came back as raised white blood cells, indicating a viral infection. Not anaemic. He has been using an inhaler and it helped the cough. Then I got full blown flu. Went to GP today, that was my first step out of house for 3 weeks. GP prescribed antibiotics and told me to rest. This evening ds started shaking and saying he felt sick. Again!!! He is so fed up and not himself at all. Usually a healthy and very lively person. This all seems endless and awful to see him so fed up. My mum isn't well so no respite and I feel guilty he hasn't been anywhere since school holiday started. Some very aggressive bugs going around
