throwing up bile. Ravey Candyass 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Boston, Massachusetts 105203 posts

Chub has been throwing up since about 2:30. So 2 hours now, and it's happened at least a dozen times. Nothing is staying down, so we're at the point of throwing up bile.



How long do I keep pushing water/powerade before I need to take her in? Or is there ANYTHING else I can give her before the point of going in. I really don't want to leave the house.

IDK. I'd say give her 6 hours? Is she sipping or taking drinks?



But your governor just banned driving on the roads so IDK how that works. I assume medical emergencies are something completely okay to be driving for.

Maybe a tablespoon of water every 5 minutes or so. If she keeps going like this, throwing up bile for another few hours, I'd take her in. But if you can successfully get even a few tablespoons of water, then maybe some broth down her and she keeps it down, she should be fine.

If the child is under one I woulds call the on-call nurse and ask them. Other then that I would wait about 6 hours. Keep a close eye on your child and give them light colored pop ice or cold water treats( that so do not have milk) If you child become weak or if there eyes or touge become dry(for eyes base it on looks) I would go ahead and take him in.

Poor Kel. :( We all had it here about a month ago. It sucks. Seems to last about 6 hours. I threw up bile for the last 3. She also probably won't feel like eating much for about 3 days, that's how it was for us. This virus is hitting everyone.

Aww. :(



She napped for about 30 minutes, woke up puking, but now has kept down about 5 oz of mpowerade/water mix. So it looks like I won't have to be fined. :lol:

Yeah, but unless it's truly an emergency situation, taking a sick child out into a blizzard that is so bad the Governor banned driving, is not a smart choice either. :roll:
