I need some advice. My 5 y/o DD woke up this morning vomiting and with a fever of 102.9. After throwing up few times, she ate a little, and kept drinking. I gave her Tylenol, but her fever only lowered to around 100.5. Every time the Tylenol wore off it would start creeping back up. I lightened her clothing and gave her a lukewarm bath. (she got mad at me when I caught her with her coat on and made her take it off, poor thing) I checked on her just a few minutes ago and found her temp at 102.9 again. I gave her Tylenol, and then a few minutes later she wanted something to drink. While I was getting her water, she started spitting up again. It's not a projectile vomit, it's more of a spitting up, and she says her tummy hurts right around her belly button.
My question is, do you think this warrants an ER visit, or would she be ok to wait and see the doctor tomorrow?

My main concern is the belly hurting like I said....the fever is just the "result" of what is going on. If the belly pain gets worse I would take her on to the ER. I hope tonight goes smoothly and you all get some rest.
