My daughter has been sick since last Wednesday. She had a high fever and diahrrea so I took her to urgent care that day and they said it was viral and to just give her motrin and tylenol for her symptoms. So Friday I got her into a pediatrician's office, he said the same thing. Now it's Tues, her fever has definitely improved but she's eaten jack since then (maybe 1 or 2 bites of things I offer her, applesauce, bananas, toast, crackers, etc) and going to the bathroom literally every 5 minutes. I'm not exaggerating on that, either, she'll go every 5 and it's diahhrea. Today she's vomited twice. I called the dr but they're closed til 2. I really don't want to take her back just to hear "Oh, it's viral, can't do anything" because I'll kill someone if they don't help her out soon. I'm kinda thinking the ER, I want her scanned to make sure there's no intestinal probs going on. What would you do?
