Since Charlotte has a 101 temperature tonight & is complaining her ear hurts (AND hallucinating that she sees BEES & SPIDERS everywhere - freaky!), I have doctors & diagnosis on the brain. No pause for Mother's Day, no day off of worrying.... 101 temperature might be ok for everyone else, but I am starting to wonder with a child who has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, when do you REALLY worry? Its a question I will ask at our next infusion, but I have put a call into the emergency nurse just in case. Her immune system isnt normal, so when do I freak out & tylenol isnt enough?
This is a GREAT website for your perusal & usage.

PS - Doc called back & wants us in the office on Sunday morning if her fever is still there, because that would be day 3 of a temperature in a JRA child. Or what she called, a "not well child." UGH with the terminology.
