My 4 year old started a fever last Monday, croup had been going around at daycare. Wednesday we called the pediatrician and they said to see if she got better but they normally don't see a child for a low grade fever, friday she wasn't better, still kept getting a fever and has become really lethargic. The pediatrician saw her Friday and said she had pneumonia, they prescribed antibiotics, told us to continue treating her all weekend with Advil or Tylenol to help her discomfort and to keep trying to get her to eat. She's eating ok, she's not coughing as much but still is, I don't know if she still has a fever because we've been giving her medicine to help, and she's still pretty run down which is expected I guess. The dr said if she's not better monday to call and get her back in, has anyone else's child had pneumonia and how long was it before you saw great improvement?
