Let's play "Would you have sent your kid to daycare?"!
DS woke up in a good mood yesterday and ate breakfast fine. He was in the church nursery and they said he was very good. On the way home from church, he was fussy and crying, then he vomited in the car. After vomiting, he got REALLY tired and wanted to go to sleep at 11:30 (usual naptime is 12:30). We took his fever when we got home (no fever) and then sent him straight to bed without lunch.
We woke him up at 3:15. He would have kept sleeping for quite a while, as far as I could tell. When we woke him, his fever was 100.2. He wanted to eat and drink, so we gave him some pedialyte and crackers. We also gave him ibuprofen for his fever. After that, he acted 100% normal. He ate dinner and went to bed around 7:15, which is his normal bedtime. His temperature was slightly elevated (99.2). He slept through the night, and when he woke up this morning (earlier than normal, probably because of his long nap yesterday) his temperature was 98.8. He ate breakfast and was acting fine. No vomiting aside from the one time in the car on Sunday morning.
My husband took him to daycare. I would have kept him home. Technically, he was okay to go considering his temperature never reached the ?fever? threshold (100.4 according to our pedi) and he only vomited once. He has vomited in the car before without being sick, but only maybe 4x in his life. It?s not a common occurrence.
I?ve got my phone on me today in case daycare calls.
What would you have done?
