I have a question about my 6 year old daughter with a fever,

I have a question about my 6 year old daughter with a feverJA: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?Customer: Yes, my 6 year old daughter has been sick off and on for several weeks now, with a persistant cough. She threw up on Monday and has had a fever off and on since then. Yesterday and today has been worse with vomiting several times a day and fever spiking to 40 degrees celcius. We went to the ER last night and the wait was 6 hours so we were turned away. We went to the doctor today and he ordered a chest x ray for tomorrow morning for possible pnemonia. He also prescribed amoxicillin antibiotics for 10 days. She took her first dose of amoxicilin tonight but threw up. I have been trying to keep the fever down below 40 degrees celcius with alternating tylenol and advil. Right now it is at 39.7 after having tylenol and I cannot give her advil again for another hour. I am not sure if I should try and take her to the ER again tonight. The doctor I saw today said to go if I could not keep her fever down. This seems serious to me and she has never been sick like this before and I am just not sure what to do. Will it be okay to wait until her x ray in the morning?JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: no allergies

My 3 year old son had a febrile seizure at daycare right

My 3 year old son had a febrile seizure at daycare right when I was picking him up. He went to ER and was administered liquid and suppository Tylenol and liquid Motrin. They did a chest xray at the hospital but did not say he has pneumonia. He was prescribed 400mg/5ml dose 7.48 ml by mouth every 12 hours for 10 days,100 mg/5ml dose 6.65 ml by mouth every 6 hours Motrin, 160 mg/5ml dose Tylenol 5 ml by mouth every 4 hours.His symptoms are barking cough, runny nose, coughing (mostly clear with occasional yellow), he is drinking fluids and milk but won't eat much. He seemed a little weak earlier and said he just wanted to sleep. His eyes looked very tired. He has had a lot of gas today.He is a little congested. I have a humidifier running to help. But notice his nose was bleeding. He was poking his eye and whining before I noticed the nose bleed a second time. The nosebleed is not profuse. It seems to happen after coughing. I never have seen this happen before I am a little worried about the nosebleed.
