this all started back around Oct. of last yr. my now 9 month old niece was hospitalized w/ RSV. after couple of days was discharged and we were told there was nothing else that was done but observation. well, she never really got over it. we have been to so many different doc. appt. for every knew symptom, however, docs. just keep saying she is fine. off and onhere are her symptoms: congestion (put on albuterol and pulmicort (steroid) 4x daily), sometimes her limbs are red maybe swollen (she is very chunky baby, no wrists or ankles), cough, runny nose, fever (4 days now currently) of 103.8, vomiting of everything including meds, formula, pedialyte, bottled water, very lethargic, crying, whinny, just not herself. couple of days ago, i took her to doc. (2 days after last appt.) and she had mild right ear infection. but is vomiting up her antibiotics for that. docs. keep saying that she is perfectly healthy, children's mercy said it was allergies. (mothers intuition says that's a load of crap). i know that we are suppose to trust our children's docs. but something is not right w/ this little girl. just called doc. again and he wants to see her yet another time. does any of this sound familiar to anyone? at first we thought just cold, but since Oct.? Please help.
