[IPp] low numbers and not feeling well



Has anyone's child ever had what appeared to be some kind of virus, (feeling
nauseus, decreased appetite, but no fever and not vomitting) with low
numbers??? This has been going on for a few days now, on and off. I am going
to call the MD tomorrow, but thought I'd get feedback from anyone on here.
thanks!!
