I have a 2yr old daughter that was admitted in the hospital for an extremely high fever. She had no other symptoms, just woke up one night with a temp of 103.9. Two days later, she was admitted because it wouldn't go down. While in the hospital, it got up to 105, which completely freaked out me and the nurses! After lots of blood work, ct scans, and a chest ray, which all came back normal, she was sent home and diagnosed with a virus. Well, the same thing happened when she was 8 weeks old. I feel as if the docs are missing something! How can this happen twice and the docs still have no idea what's wromg! I am scared that it might be something else and is being overlooked! PLEASE HELP!!!
