thankyou again for the vibes everyone! they are definitely appreciated. my brother-in-law just called me...he stopped by the drugstore and got her some childrens motrin....so they're giving her some, giving her an ice pack and sending her to bed. they are supposed to call the pediatrician in the morining and check in- if she is worse- he's taking her in as an emergency. i'll keep ya'll posted.

Did the doctor have you make sure she can touch her chin to her chest?

Adding my {{{{prayers and vibes}}}} for Taylor You might try giving her a small bit of crystallized ginger to nibble on, and some room-temp, natural flavored gingerale. the ginger helps in the same way as Pedialyte. My daughter was given this advice by her pediatrician after a bad spell of encephlitis that caused constant nausea and vomiting. I've used it myself, since then, and it does seem to help with the electrolytes. IF you can't find any of those, make a ginger water with about a tsp. of ground ginger in a glass of warm water with enough sugar (preferably raw) to make it palatable. Be sure to give tiny but frequent doses. Please keep on giving us updates

No he didn't. I'll ask Kimmy (my sister) in the morning if Taylor is able to. What does this indicate if she is not able to? Thanks for the heads up!

I've never heard of this before! Thankyou for the advice. I will definitely get some ginger for her tomorrow (she's asleep right now- i just called my sister to check on her- her fever is down a little but she still wasn't feeling well before she went to lay down for the night). We will be taking her to the doctor tomorrow if she still has a fever. Thanks for the advice! I will definitely get some for her to try

I am wondering about touching her chin to her chest, I have never heard any one say some thing about that? I hope the ginger helps her, if you try it!

She probably is fine. That's the test doctors use to diagnose meningitis, which has those symptoms, but usually the person is really, really sick, so not to worry you!

Yeah, I think Taylor would really really really be sick, you would have already taken her to the doctor.

oh ok! thanks for the explanation i wasn't sure. i'll still ask kimmy tomorrow just to be safe we think she has some sort of viral flu thing that's been going around her school- her brothers had it last week (they just recovered quicker) and all of her friends have had it.

I am thinking the same thing, that is what it sounds like, just kicking her butt a little more than her brothers.
