worried about aspiration pneumonia

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

On Tuesday, my ten year old started vomiting, pretty violently (stomach virus, it spread like wildfire throughout my family, yay). Well in the car(I was called to pick her up from school) she was gasping and choking while vomiting. 2-3 days later she developed a mid-grade fever(like 100.5+), horrible coughing and she is coughing up green mucous. I am a little worried she aspirated and has pneumonia, but I don't want to overreact as usual. Could it be possible she has pneumonia, or are the symptoms more severe? I have read so many different things on this. Just would like some opinions.

It definitely could be an aspiration pneumonia. The symptoms can range from mild to severe and the timeframe is right.
