She will be 3 next month. This is the 3rd time now, since last fall, I would say, where she just wakes in the night sick as a dog. Took her temp, no fever, in fact it was LOW - it said 95.3 or something, then I took my own and it also said 95. something, so it's the thermometer. She woke, got sick, was fine shortly after, I changed her clothes & her sheets, put her back to bed, and within 5 minutes of her back asleep, it happened again. This happened about 5 times last night, between 10:30pm and 12:30am. I called the ped.'s after-hours exchange and they think it might be a virus, but there's no fever accompanied with it. (??) Just in case they had me call poison control, because we put out ant poison, but it's in places she absolutely cannot reach. Poison control said it wouldn't affect her unless she had the bottle and took in a whole bunch of the poison, and she wouldn't seem fine after throwing up, her belly would hurt constantly.
She seems perfectly fine this morning-- healthy appetite... happy... my issue is this morning, I'm supposed to visit my mom with the girls and "babysit" my aging stepdad who has dementia while mom goes to the doc. I feel guilty taking her out after the night we had, but she really seems fine, and if I decided to keep her home to rest, I have a feeling no resting will insue... this girl has ENERGY!!
What should I do? Does this occasional mystery sickness happen happen to your child?
