swelling w/fevers
I am curious if any of your lo's have swelling in their face, hands and feet when they get fevers. It seems like A always does. I am practically in tears here. She is so lethargic and her wheezing is horrible. No matter how many times we suction her nose is just fills right back up. I have given back to back breathing treatments and the fever is finally starting to come back down. I called the doc on call and she was on the phone with me for less than 3 minutes. Seriously, it took me longer to tell her what was goign on than for her to recommend something. I don't want to overreact and take her in and submit her to that but what should I do.

I told the doc on call about the swelling and she said to try benadryl. What is that going to do? I know it isn't an allergic reaction! We have had enough of those to know what those look and act like. Not to mention she had the swelling last night and the benadryl didn't take care of it then. Sorry to rant.

Meggy gets the swelling too. Her genetic doc. wants to check her for Mediterranean fever and I forget what else.

Can you just make an appointment with the pedi? You may get better care if you are sitting in front of her.
Check with your
doctor first!
