Hi all, my 3 year old has been unwell since last Saturday. She vomited once Saturday, then again Monday night then developed a fever Tuesday morning.
Yesterday afternoon she became really unwell really high fever, looked grey and wouldn't speak. She felt so sick that she couldn't move at all, although she didn't actually vomit. Then she started to say strange things and see things that weren't there.
I took her to the hospital and they weren't able to pinpoint exactly what was wrong with her and allowed us to come home after observing her for a few hours and controlling her temperature.
On to today she woke up this morning feeling really sick again and then slept for another 3 hours. She has been awake for about 4 hours today in all just laying on the sofa watching tv she hasn't eaten but has been drinking water. She fell asleep at 3 and is still asleep now I've carried her upstairs and she hasn't even noticed and isn't waking up at all although has said no twice without opening her eyes to questions I've asked.
I feel worried again, is this flu and normal or should I be getting her seen again?
She is breathing normally, her hands and feet are really cold but they were yesterday at the hospital too so that's not a new symptom. I tickled her foot and she moved it and she said no to a drink without opening her eyes.
I'm not sure if she is just sleeping it off and I should leave her or if she's actually getting worse.
Her temperature has gone back up but she won't wake up to take any more medicine
Don’t get too stressed op. Call 111 get some advice but it’s only day 2. So its not overly long time she’s been ill. She does definitely need fluids though. If not water then something else. If she doesn’t seem to be waking then absolutely 999.
Ok so I spoke to 111 and the dr said let her sleep and keep an eye on her which I've been doing all night. She has just had really violent watery diarrhoea all over herself and not woken up
I got her up to shower her and change her bedding and she has let me do that without complaining. She is now refusing to even sip her water so has now gone over 13 hours without a drink which on top of the diarrhoea surely isn't a good thing! Although she did wee while I was showering her (and didn't realise she was doing it)
Ringing 111 again she is going to need to be seen again
This poor little girl! What is this awful thing she's got
