He was just dignoised earlier today and he was given an antibiotic shot. He is still super fussy and it seems like it is even worse. He has a fever still. He refuses to eat anything and now he refuses to drink. I was told to push liquids...but what do I do if he won't swallow it? I don't want him to get dehydrated. Any tips? Also, he took about a 2 minute nap followed by him waking and screaming for about 40 minutes and I couldn't do anything to get him to calm down. He has a follow up appointment with his doctor in the morning. Should I try to wait it out? Should I take him to the ER if it gets any worse? When should I stop waiting and just take him to the ER? I've never had this and neither has my hubby so I'm not sure what to do. I was hoping the shot would kick in really fast, but it's been 5 hours since he was given the shot and it's like he is getting worse.Answer Question
