My kids ate an apple that after I looked at it had a huge mushy spot- they did not eat any of that part. I tasted some of it and I think it was ok. If it had gone bad, will it make them ill? Should I be watching for anything in particular? I'm guessing at most an upset tummy but I wasn't sure.

My daughter (she's 7 years old) is complaining of belly

My daughter (she's 7 years old) is complaining of belly pain. The pain comes and goes and she's pointing directly below her belly button. She doesn't have a fever and no vomiting. She was seen in the ER yesterday where they did an ultrasound to check her appendix. It looked ok so she was sent home. She's still having pain. At this point I'm not sure what to do for her.
