Give it a few days: Many viruses going around this time of the year can cause suden fever and then recurrent fever about the smae time each day for even up to a week. As lng as she has no other complaints (sore throat, ears, hurts when she pees, etc), then you should be ok to watch and wait for 7-10 days. Longer than that is not usual and would then need further evaluation.
