Oh geez, no pressure or anything, right? I often stress before a big event such as a party, or anything that I am responsible to host or 'run'.
Hopefully she will be feeling better by then. If she is no longer running a fever, then she should be fine. If she is...there is not much you can do, but let the guests enjoy themselves while she rests as much as possible. Maybe just letting her take it easy most of the time, and allowing her mimimal activity if she's still feeling weak would be in order.
Of course, most likely she will bounce back quickly, as most kids do and be perfectly fine!
I try to look at the big picture when these things happen. Will it be a huge deal if she is sick for her birthday? It happens, and it will not even be remembered by her next one!
Try to envision a positive outcome just the same...she wakes up right as rain, and the party is a blast for everyone!:)
Say happy birthday for me.:)
