Yesterday, her fever stayed largely between 102 and 103.5 (at its highest). We got it down to the 101s only once, with a one-two punch of medicine and bath, but it quickly climbed and we couldn't repeat the lowered temp. She was, and is, drinking well enough, so I am pleased. She took in about 24 ounces over the course of yesterday, which is good. I don't think it is the Dreaded Strep, because if her throat was hurting I think she would be refusing fluids. Thankfully she is not.
I went to bed at 11, anticipating the fact that she would wake when her medicine wore off about 1am, but she never woke and I slept right on through until morning. It was quite lovely.
I'm still on the fence about a pediatrician visit. Other than the fever, some lethargy, and a bit of the body aches when the fever spikes ("Hurt. A hurt. Hurthurthurt."), she seems to be faring well. She's drinking and sleeping well enough. She is crankier today. I have a call into the nurse, just to get someone else's opinion. We shall see.
