my DD (5 yo) has some nasty sinus junk and has had it off and on since April. my family has pretty bad allergies and all of us (me, my bro, DS, and my dad) have been miserable along with her. earlier this evening (while i was in class, ugh!) she threw up, but DH said it was mostly green mucus. she was acting totally fine when i left for class, and DH says she just acted really tired for about 30 mins before throwing up. luckily, she was able to give him enough warning so that it all went into our throw up bucket. she hasnt thrown up again (its been maybe 4 hours?) and fell asleep as soon as i got home (she'd been making herself stay up till i got home so she could tell me what happened). no fever, no aches, and she never complained that anything hurt, just the normal ick throat from vomiting.
2 questions. is sinus drainage throw up a reason to see the dr? my brother threw up every morning of high school b/c of sinus drainage and eventually had to have his adenoids, tonsils, and some scar tissue from his sinus cavity removed. if this is a sign of something more to come id like to get it handled now. or is this just one of those things that happens to little kids when they swallow too much snot?
other question...since its not a stomach bug or flu or something, is it okay to send her to school tomorrow (if she feels up to it)? she really loves school and im pretty sure she's gonna want to go (this girl demanded to go to pre-K w/ a 102 fever and severe ear infection last year haha). if i need to keep her home i must prepare for a fight haha.
