Life Threatening? No
Write-up: On 5/11/00, pt was given 3 shots; IPV, DTP, and HIB. Her problems started almost 2 days later. She was not the same little girl I know. She was very cranky and would cry for hours (non-stop) like she was in pain, then she started to get flu-like symptoms (runny nose and chest congestion) to where she couldn''t breathe. I called the pediatrician and he told me she was fine and it was because the weather was changing. She was like that for a while. I called again and he told me I was getting upset over nothing and that she was ok, because she had no fever. So I took his word for it and I even told him I think she is having a reaction to the shots and he said no, it''s the weather. That Friday night, I laid her down to sleep for the night and she never woke up. They told me it was SIDS and for some reason I just can''t believe that. She was fine until they gave her them shots.
