She will also be very lethargic and sleep for about 2 days with minimal waking.

ETA: she usually gets a shot of Rocephin and then the appropriate oral antibiotics after the culture and sensitivity come back at 48 hours.

My neighbor's daughter has the same thing. It's exactly as 7 for now described too - sudden high fever, no symptoms. Before they dx'd the reflux, she was cathed, got antibiotics and repeat.

Now she's on a daily antibiotic and yearly reflux tests.
