    I sat at the moment in accident and emergency at the moment as my 13 year old lad came home from Boys Brigade tonight and said he felt sick. He went straight to bed and an hr later came down shaking and said he was cold. He had temp but his lips arms hands were all blue. He is on a drip at moment and waiting for blood results to see why. If I'm not on a few days this is why. Not sure what is what as yet

    So sorry to hear that Lily. He's in the best of hands and he's got his fantastic mum with him. I wish him well and will keep my fingers crossed he's out soon. Here if you need anything. x

    Thank you all. You are all amazing xx
    He had a kidney infection and total dehydration. His veins had collapsed and they put him on a drip but missed his veins. So all the fluid has leaked into his muscle and arm and caused more pain.
    He is now home and resting. Lots of hugs for him. His laboured breathing and blueness has gone now so lots of rest and he will be good.
    Thank you all xx

    Oh my god! That's awful.

    I'm so glad to hear he's on the mend. I was anxiously waiting to get news. Thanks for letting us know. I hope you're ok; it must be draining and you must be beside yourself. Here to talk if needed.

    Nothing but best wishes and hugs to you and your boy. X
