What is an FBC? In my experience the docs never have anything more to do to reduce a fever than what I can do at home. At a hospital there is the added risk of catching something from other sick people. So, I personally would stay home until 104F. (unless this child is not otherwise healthy)
just got back from A&E. They've taken bloods and will call me with the result. Didn't take urine cos they couldn't figure out how to get any out of a quadraplegic and did a swab of her tube hole. S he is responding to calpol but is miserable and yelling right now. DH has her.
bloods mostly normal - platelets are low but I have no idea what that means. They said bring her back (oh joy) if her temp goes up again and get a FBC done at the GP's on Tuesday to check her platelets. Her triglycerides were high too. No idea what that means either! So the consensus is that she has a viral infection because they can find nothing wrong. Very fustrating.
I reckon when children are sick a little glowy thing should appear on their heads with the label! I am worried its septicemia but that would have shoed up on blood tests right? She is hot and feverish, irritable, refusing food and vomiting if she has it, lethargic, blotchy and sleepy. No rash though.
Both mine had a virus last week with very high tempreture and absolutely no other symptoms. DD (12 months) had 105F - completely freaked me out. Both were better after 48 hours. Hope this is all you are dealing with.
