Some thoughts: The appendix is usually located near the origin of the right thigh muscle. If it is inflamed a kid usually cannot jump up/down on the right leg & usually walks doubled over in a crouched position. If the kid is playful at times, feeds well & appears comfortable you can watch things. If the kid has those signs or does something that spooks you take her in.
