  • My youngest has had 5 sets of tubes. By getting sick do you mean vomiting mucus/snot? My yougest does that when the drainage is too much(since it drains down the throat into the belly) That's his body's way of getting it out.

  • It really sound to me like he's got a nasty bug. I have 4 boys and they are all the time coming down with something. Fevers are the body's way to fight off whatever is going on. We don't treat fevers unless the kids are really miserable or in pain. Sleeping is good but make sure he gets lots of fluids. Depending on the amount of drainage, the vomiting could last awhile. Try treating the fever and keep him drinking. If it last for more than a 24 hours(as the same severity) then give the Dr. a call. It may lessen on it's own.
