Took her to see the Dr. today and she has strep. The Dr. said with the fever so high and her not having a runny nose or anything then its more les NOT the teeth.. Her ears were fine but Tonsils were really red. So she is now on Amoxocillen.. She has been doing great today.. not much of any fever.. I done tylenol & motrin every 6 hours today to help her with pain.. She is sleeping, eating, and playing well.. Not too fussy as long as Im holding her.. which I do not just sit around and do...:) I make her get down and play or something rather than me hold her as much as she would like right now :)
Thanks for all the concerns.. Sorry it took so long to reply about her.. I have had a busy day and computer kept freezing up earlier when I did have some time.. go figure..
My mom once told me about the cool bath to help break a fever.. works every time. I do not do it though unless the fever is very high like 103 maybe higher and tylenol or motrin wont bring it down withing 30-45 minutes..
I will not take my kids to the ER unless their fever is high and will not go down after tylenol, motrin or a cool bath.. Alot of times my kids will get high temps and be sick and it only be viral.. They cant take meds for just a viral unless they can pinpoint exactly what it is,.. So I wait until Im sure i need to go. My mom is the nurse for the Dr so if something gets to outa hand I call her and she calls the dr.. :) thats nice too ;)
I have seen to many girls take their babies to ER for a "lower" fever.. 100- 104 without giving them tylenol motrin no cool bath.,.. nothing.. So they get to hospital adn set for hourse waiting to be sen they give the child tylneol or motrin and send them home normally with nothing more needed.. drives me crazy././ NO OFFENSE to anyone.. I know some of you have probably had bad experiences with fevers or whatever and I am simply talking about some people I know.. So Im a bit more strict when heading to the ER..
