wtf is going on?!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Ds has been throwing up since WEDNESDAY. He had a 100.6 fever that went away over night.
Thursday he puked after dinner.
Yesterday he didnt puke at all
Today he got screaming/coughing and puked all over.

No fever. Wet nasty cough that he gets every winter. As soon as it gets warm outside hes FINE.

At 3 days old he had a raging eye infection that we never got a diagnosis on. He had RSV last winter, 2 boughts of phneumonia and several of broncitus. 6 ear infectons since he was born and got tubes 12/21/12.


Why does this keep happening???? And of course its saturday and the dr is closed...


Eta: he hasny really been eating. He had a helping of spagetti yesterday, a lunchable yestersay, and 1/4 of a corn toastie today.... thats it since wednesday

Sounds like a lot of illnesses in his short life. Has his blood been checked?

The flus going around...

Immune disorders?? Idk exactly what to check for (not a dr.) but I'd ask the pedi to have blood work done just incase.

If he is throwing up that much and not eatting well, ontop of fever and a chronic cough, I'd take him to the ER. My niece had a fever and cough a couple days ago (shes 3) and SIL took her in. Found out she has the flu. There are alot of things going around right now and its better to be safe then sorry. I almost lost my son because his pedi told me he had mono last year. Said their was nothing we could do for it. I watched my baby suffer because I believed her instead of getting a second opinion. He ended up in childrens hospital for 3 weeks. Its been months and, even tho he is getting better, there is still no diagnosis. He never had mono either (they re-checked). All I'm saying is its better to make sure when its a child that cant tell you what is wrong. I hope he feels better quickly.

Last winter he got this sick and we took him to the er. He had RSV. The hsopital sent us home w a apt for the next day w h. Dr.

We went and I said he wasnt nursing or peeing. He said "thats fine. He will when hes ready".... I took him to tbe bigger hospital and he was kept for 3 days.

I just wish we knew what was happening
