Is she having wet diapers? then she isn't getting dehydrated and you are on the right track.
I might take her in a warm (not cool!) bath. That often makes my kids feel better.
It's good that she's nursing and having wet diapers. Really encourage the nursing. The most immediate concern is dehydration.
I'd be a touch worried if she stays out of sorts too much longer, that's one reason I suggest a bath, change things up a bit, see if she perks.
Encourage nursing more than the water. A little water is fine, but if she's not eating, you don't want her downing a bunch of plain water as it can unbalance electrolytes.
It's so hard when they're sick- and I think puking bugs are the worst- even worse when they're feverish too. Poor bug. Hope she feels better soon!
