Mum poorly yesterday with a migraine, so not only did Dad hold the fort and run the house ,but he also made an excellent stand in teacher! Today it was Benedict's turn :-( He woke at five am with a temperature and headache and has pretty much continued in the same vein all day. This evening he has had two episodes of vomiting but I think this is largely due to swollen glands in his stomach, rather than a gastric bug. When in sickness mode we manage the diabetes in a different way, so Dad has been dispatched to the local Spar for Coca Cola, Soft Mints, Ice Cream and Chocolate!! Thankfully blood sugars are within normal range and there are no ketones in his blood, long may this be the case!
