Ok this is going to be a little long, so bear with me! My son is 17 months old. When he was 13 months old, he suffered an 8 minute long febrile seizure due to roseola. A couple days later and he was back to being a normal 1 year old. We were told that there was a very small chance it would happen again. Fast forward to October of this year, we were battling a high fever once again. It reached 103.8 before he began another seizure. We were admitted overnight, and the doctor believe his high fever was this time caused by a flu shot he received earlier in the day. He had an EEG the following Monday. That came back normal (thank goodness!). We assumed all was well and he would feel better in a few days like before. He's been consistently sick for the month after his hospital stay. We have dealt with a constant cough, swollen tonsils, what the doctor diagnosed as pharyngoconjunctival fever. He has also been throwing up occasionally, maybe 2-3 times per week, nothing too alarming. The one thing that has been consistent throughout the last month is a persistent low-grade fever. While we are a little more aware of high fevers than maybe others may be, it's something that we have to make sure we stay on top of before it gets out of hand and we end up dealing with another seizure. We do have another doctors appointment scheduled for him tomorrow, (we scheduled it after calling in today when his fever reached 101) but I'm just not sure exactly what I should be asking them to look for. I understand they know what they are doing and all, and his doctor is wonderful, but I was just looking to see if anyone had any sort of advice or input regarding this. We really appreciate it. We are hoping to get our little guy feeling better and we are quite nervous! Thank you!!!
