DS has some sort of flu-like bug. Fever (not high), he vomited once, no appetite, loose stools, just laying around, pale, doing okay hydration-wise.
The dumb question is: Tylenol or no Tylenol? He's not complaining of any aches or anything, it'd just be for the elevated temp (I can't find a freaking working thermometer so I don't know how high it is, I just know it's up but not super high). I usually let a fever run it's course but my kids usually get the 12-24 puke bug with no fever so I'm a little out of my element.
And I live in one of those tiny towns where the nearest urgent care/ER is over 20 miles away, we've had snow/ice, DH is gone, there is no after-hours doctor line, the nurses at the hospital just say "if you're worried come to the ER", and of course we're lacking insurance at the moment. (I think I covered all possibilities of what people could say.)
