Today's doctor was thorough. A good chest listen and stomach squidge, temperature (high), sats, ears and throat, urine discussed and discounted, medications checked, and child observed closely. And the doctor said "hmmm" lots and "yes I can see what you see" several times and "no she's definitely not right is she" a few times and then "come back on Thursday" once. She isn't ill enough to be in hospital (I agree), she isn't right at all but she doesn't have any obvious signs of infection in the usual places, so antibiotics probably not going to be particularly helpful. So we plug on with the antipyreticals and extra water, keep her comfortable and will probably see him again on Thursday. At which point I do hope he'll actually do something - although I'm not sure what? Swabs, bloods, something? There must be some way of identifying what has knocked her for six in this way. She's exhausted.
One strange thing - usually her seizures are quite jerky twitchy things. She's so floppy with this that even her seizures have slowed down, less starfish more jellyfish, less coat hanger, more scarf waving in the breeze.
And so for Mog the school term has finished early - Happy Christmas?
Edit: The doctor we saw has just phoned and would like us to arrange a blood test for Mog to make sure it isn't her new anticonvulsants causing this. Naturally the only time the nurses can do a test is tomorrow morning right at the time when Little Fish is due back from school, so now I guess she's finishing her school term early too. 'Tis the season to be Jolly
