*Update nurse called me back* 101.2 fever and heavy coughing in a 9 month old?
He's nine months old. Fever is 101.2. He has a wet cough where you can hear the flem. He's also just started a runny nose.
He had surgery in Thursday but it couldn't be an infection could it? Infections cause fevers but not cold symptoms.
I just gave him some infant acetaminophen before calling the doctors office.
Can it wait another four hours until the office opens? His flem is bad enough we he had to stop and cough in order to breath right again.
The surgery was for hypospadias repair and circumcision.
She told me to come in at 9 when the office opens (love this practice they are open seven days a week). Is the surgical site swells or there are red lines, if his lips turn blue or a rash appears or if his temp goes above 105 then go to ER. So for now ill keep an eye on him.
