You have not mentioned about the site of abdominal pain.
Definitely a fever of 39.4`F is not normal.
Urinary tract infection should be ruled out.
I would suggest that basic work up might be done like- Complete blood count and Urine microscopy.
If pus cells are higher, a culture would be warranted.
Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your daughter good health.
