He is definitely getting worse instead of better. Pains in his bones, he says. Feels sick. Said he feels like he did when he had the swine flu a couple of years ago...and he was really very sick then. I'm going to bring him to the GP just to be sure there is nothing else going on. The really sad thing is he is pleading with me not to bring him because he says 'it will just be a waste of time'. He's probably right. It's such a dreadful illness isn't it? And I feel so helpless watching him.
