  • Son throws up after visiting father

    I am going through a divorce and my ex has been getting my son one day over the weekend and bringing him home at the end of the day. My son seems to feel fine and eats his dinner and goes to bed.

    Fever in 22 month old for over a month now

    For over a month now my 22 month old daughter has been running low grade fevers almost every day. Anywhere from 99.8 to 100.9.

We are a week out from that and still experiencing these temperatures even after a 1 week prophylactic course of Amoxicillin. The fevers seem to happen in the late afternoon/early evening.

    Stomach Hurts for 5 year old

    My 5 year old has a overactive imagination

    My five year old has a overactive imagination. At first it was kind of funny and interesting when she would make up stories about things she has done which she never has but recently her stories have turned a little darker she has "friends"that she has made up an tell about them getting hurt in horrible ways and I have no idea where she would get the things she has said from. She tells these stories without missing a beat like these things have actually happened to these kids she has made....
