And I'm still going strong. Caffiene is a wonderful thing when you have a sick kiddo at home. My poor LO has the flu and its stressing me out something fierce. Her temp will NOT go below 101*, and the lowest its been today was 101.3, and that was almost 12 hours ago! She had an episode where her temp went up to 103.8, and I put her in a lukewarm bath, which helped a little bit, but since then her temp has stayed at 101.
How dangerous is that? Is that a serious temp to be stuck at? Every site that I have Googled said to seek immediate medical attention. I'm having to literally remind her to drink fluids ( she has a cup full of Gatorade and water sitting beside her ). She doesn't even have the energy to go to the bathroom. I had to almost carry her in there a while ago so she could pee. She did pee a normal amount though so I don't think she is dehydrated.
My main concern is the temp issue. How high is too high? Is 101 or higher a dangerous temp to be stuck at for almost 12 hours?
DD is 7 years old, and I am alternating Tylenol and Advil, and she has a cool cloth on her head that I am keeping damp with cool water every few minutes.
