    Hi simsmommy -

    Ouch, sometimes the shots and reactions hurt us moms more than they affect our kids. A little one with a fever is so sad.

    I know it's been awhile since you posted this and hope that her fever cleared up quickly. How is she doing now? How long did her fever last?

    You may not be wanting to think about the next round of shots, but here is some information that may be helpful -
