DD fell down the stairs a little bit ago. Scariest moment ever. DH caught her about halfway down. She didn't appear to hit her head at all, but had a little bleeding in her mouth as if her tooth cut into her gum. She cried a bit, but was "fine" pretty quickly. As we were snuggling after that, I noticed that she felt warm and took her temp. Sure enough, she's running a fever - about 101. I didn't notice the fever earlier, but of course it's possible that it just started and I hadn't noticed yet.
I'm so scared it could be related to the fall - seems so coincidental - and I'm wondering if we should take her to the ER even though she is acting totally normal, goofing around etc. I hate to go if it isn't really necessary - obviously ERs are a nightmare, and we have a baby at home, and its a cold winter night at bedtime, and yada yada yada. Then again, better safe than sorry? wwyd???
