My 22 month old Dd, hasn't been feeling s great these last 3 days.  She's been running a fever ranging from 101.5-102.8* for about 3 days now, I took her to the doctors on Monday and he said that it was most likely just a common cold virus and it's normal for small kids to get fevers with them. He said that he didn't think she needs an antibiotic so he just told me to just manage the fever with; motrin, tylenol, luke warm baths, cold compresses, ect...  I am keeping her hydrated but she is having a hard time eating anything.  At around 2 am last night she woke up crying and choking, she threw up some yellow flem and could barely nurse afterwards. About an hour ago I noticed her glands look swollen and I am starting to wonder if I should take her to the doctors? This is the first time she has ever been this sick and I am freaking out. I don't want to over-look something and let her get worse. Should I wait it out??? I am really nervous and no one I know is picking up the phone... :/
