    My 3 year old has had a really bad runny congested nose since wednesday. Other than that he was fine. Yesterday he was his usual self,altho his eyes looked a bit tired and they are weepy. He woke up this morning at 3,no crying or nothing,got his pillow as usuall and got in bed with us. He had just laid down and then vomited,with no warning! Lovely! He had a mild temp of 38 but since then his temp has gone up to 40 and back down to 38 and then goes up again ect.I havent given him any meds as he wont take it yet and dont want to force him. He has been complaining about sore arms,legs,tummy and ears. He hasnt eaten anything but has had loads to drink and was only ill that once. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.:hugs:
