Dd had a mild fever (didn't check it) on Tuesday, along with cough and stuffy nose. Fever seemed gone by Tuesday night.
She has had a cough that has alternated between dry and "junky," but all the kids have that right now and she was turning cartwheels by Wed. evening.
Today, I thought we were done. She went to music class and had a playdate. Tons of energy. Feeling fine. No fever since Tuesday night.
She HAS been complaining of a very sore throat for a couple of days. In fact, a couple of nights ago woke up crying with it. So we gave her lozenges and that was it. Today she said it was better. Tonight it seems more about the cough and fever. I called the 811 line and they said as long as she's not blue or wheezing, she'll be okay until Monday morning; unless her fever goes over 40.5 (104). I gave her Tylenol and the fever is down.
Dh is mad at me, because he thinks I'm overreacting. I have an anxiety disorder that manifests as hypochondria.
Can someone please, please tell me by baby is not going to die? She is 7 years old and very healthy. She is "behind" on her vaccines. Is that why she's so sick?
Dh does say she's breathing a bit fast, but her nose is stuffy and I've heard fevers can do that. Can somebody help me through this night?
