what the fever was
well we went to the pedi this morning first thing b/c dh was going into work at 10am so we had the car. Emily had a 102.7 fever and was running around like a wild woman lol the dr. said it is just some sort of nasty virus. it's been causing her fever since last friday night and giving her a sore throat. thank goodness it's not strep! i used to get that all the time when i was little, not fun. I knew something was wrong when she refused a pear last night, her absolute favorite thing! She has beginning signs of dehydration but if i can get her to drink and eat popscicles today then she won't need to go to the hospital tonight. in two days if she hasn't kicked the fever, hospital admit and blood, urine and xrays done, NOT crazy about that idea. audrey says she needs attention NOW lol so i hope everybody is doing well this new year!!

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
So sorry she has a yucky virus. I hope you can keep her hydrated so no hospital visit.

Hope she feels better soon.

Check with your
doctor first!
