My LO has been sick since Saturday morning. She's seems to have a cold. She's not eating as much but is still eating. She's taking naps which she never does. And I can keep her fever down with meds but it hasn't gone away yet. She still wants to play shes not lethargic. She's never been sick this long. I've never delt with a fever like this, that's whats really worrying me. Her dr. Doesn't open until 9. I'm not sure what to do. There were 26 kids sent home last week from a virus should I not freak out and keep up with the meds? She's 8.Answer Question

If her ears don't hurt then you could just ride it out. The Dr. probably won't give you a prescription for anything anyway. Ours doesn't unless you're on deaths doorstep. If her fever spikes out of nowhere then definitely have her checked at the Dr.

She can still go if she's up to it. Our pediatrician says "100 in not a fever as far as they are concerned" Even though we as Mom's feel differently, right!? Anyway she could still go if you really wanted to for a little while. My kids were sick like that for 2 weeks with runny noses & sneezing & we had relatives visit for the day & no one else got sick from the kids. Just no kisses!
