My lil Stefferkins was sick last night... she had a fever and just didn't feel well at all. She started saying that her head hurt around 2:00 yesterday so I gave her acetaminophen and told her to lay on the couch for awhile.... of course that didn't last long... she can't be still for long. But she complained all day about her lil head. At bedtime she was still complaining... so I gave her ibuprofen and some cold and cough meds (she's had a lil cough for a few days) and she went to bed early. She woke up with a fever a few hours later but I gave her more ibuprofen and she went back to sleep and slept well.

She still had a headache this morning so I called the doctors office first thing and we got ready and went. He said it was just a viral bug... her strep test was negative.. ears looked fine... call him back if she gets any worse. I don't feel good about a 3 yar old having a headache for that long with no relief from either pain medication... but we'll see. She's not eating good either... so I know she feels bad.. when this kid doesn't eat... she's sick.

She seems to be doing better though as the day passed... she played... ate... but still not normally... and finally stopped saying her head hurt. I just wanted to make sure... I don't normally rush to the doctor that quickly but with it being Saturday I knew if she got worse it would be Monday before we could get in.... you just never know with kids.

I'm glad she's feeling better :)... Daddy is off work tomorrow and she's looking forward to doing something fun with him. I don't know what... but we'll do something. She is Daddy's girl... and it tears her up that she hasn't had much time with him lately.

Oh my gosh - my grandson who is 8 is going thru the same thing. Cough, headache, fever. Strep test negative. We thought it might be the swine flu.

Hope you little one feels better soon.

Daddy must be watching her for your court tomorrow ?

it is always a scary thing when the little ones are not feeling well. if the tylenol didn't make them feel better i would call the doctor immediately. i don't remember mine being sick that much when they were little, but chelsea used to have seizures which freaked me out to no end.

have a great day my friend, much love to you!

Oh, I hope she is feeling better today. It is so frustrating sometimes when our little ones are sick because they just can't articulate the problems. My 9 year old had a headache last night before going to bed and he NEVER complains of anything. Sometimes he'll be vomiting with a high fever but if you ask how he is, he'll say fine.

Thank you all so much :).... she's feeling much better today so I guess 'Ole Doc' was right. Now Adrian has whatever it is... but he's tough... he can handle it... at least he's off work today! It must be some weird lil virus going around.

A Lil Enchanted,

Good to hear she's feeling better. It's really hard to have a sick child. She's going to spend great time with Daddy soon.

I agree with you when a three year old says there head hurts like that and the pain meds don't help there has got to be something wrong. I am glad to hear that she is feeling better. I hope that by today she is feeling much more better! I hope that she got to do something fun too this weekend.
