Had an early morning visit from my son next door, telling us that grandson Tom, is in hospital. He is 18 and had been sick for a couple of days, then last night asked his dad to take him to hospital, where he collapsed. He had a fit at 2am and they are doing a lumbar puncture, checking for meningitis. His parents have been with him all night. Son Chris and his wife will be going to the hospital again this morning, not sure whether I should go or not, not wanting to add to their worries by not coping.
