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
