Watchful eye: Watch her carefully for vomiting and or a shift of pain to the right lower portion of her abdomen. If that happens take her to the er for a possible appendix.

ER: In such situations, emergent consultation with patient's pediatrician on phone is necessary. Then follow the pediatrician's recommendations. Otherwise, take the child to the er. Thanks.
