My youngest child is 4 years old but she weighs only 21 1/2 lbs. She just got over a some type of stomach virus bout 5 days ago and was back to her usual self and then this morning she woke up cranky and had a fever. She has had the fever all day. I always worry about her because she has heart disease and was a teeny tiny preemie. She has run the gamut of health issues. Fortunately, she has an appetite and is drinking some fluids. She is not her usual self but at least she is not lethargic. I'm trying to avoid giving her any meds for the fever because I can tell that she is slightly uncomfortable but she is not so uncomfortable that I feel it necessary to give her a fever reducer. Good thing this started on the wknd and hopefully she will be better by Monday, but if not...off to the dr's office we'll go.
