My youngest has been sick for over week now. Brought him into to the local pediatric hospital Texas Children’s on the pediatricians nurse line advice. He’s had diarrhea and a low grade fever for more than 3 days, and they were worried about the fever lasting so long. Thinking maybe he had some bacterial infection that may need treatment we brought him in to be seen.
They ran a battery of tests on him including ultrasound of his stomach, blood work, urine sample via catheter and IV fluids. They said everything came back normal and more than likely it was a long lasting virus.
Two days later fever is gone but diarrhea is still there. Still waiting on a stool sample results to come in just to be sure its not bacterial.
So for now, keeping up with fluids, increasing carbs and trying to keep that fever away.
Always hate seeing my kids sick. Its one of the worst things as a mother to see your kid miserable and not be able to fix it.
