Her symptoms started with what seemed like a cold the dr rx a antibiotic and still sick 2 more diff rounds of antibiotic and still no better..she was seen in er last night for a high fever of 104.4 and her cough is so bad that she is miserable when she does cough. She has been very sleepy and has had no appetite which is not her being 17mths and weighing 27 lbs. r/o pneumonia but I'm wondering if it is viral meningitis or Epstein Barr syndrome since she had her first flu shot a week prior to this all starting
