On Tuesday, my 27 month old dd had been behaving normally and then all of the sudden she puked one evening after dinner! Afterwards she kept saying, "I feel MUCH better." She was happy and playful then would suddenly get whiny (assuming it was a wave of nausea) until she puked again. She threw up 3 times and then once more with just a teeny amount of puke but mostly heaving. There was never a fever. This was over the course of 4 hours. She fell asleep on the couch with me at 9:30pm and woke up around 1am perfectly happy, bouncy and wanting to play. I took her to her own bed and she slept the rest of the night just fine.
Wednesday and Thursday she took good long naps and things were perfectly normal.
Friday (today) she slept late (or at least lingered in bed just resting, but awake). I finally went into get her at 10am and her room smelled really bad like diarrhea. Her stool was loose and white (a tinge of tan color). There was a LOT of poop, too. She didn't seem to mind or notice and continues to be happy and playful...dancing, jumping, singing, being silly. She ate breakfast but not as much as she normally does. Still no fever.
What on earth could be going on?!! Is this possibly a post viral thing? Can you have a virus but no fever? Should she be quarantined from my unvax'd 7 month old? If her next poop hasn't improved, I will call doc. Meanwhile, I'm giving her a bland diet, no dairy, lots of water/coconut water and probiotics.
