I'm typing with one hand. Mr. T can only keep fluids down for about zero-point-not-at-all seconds.

Going on 17 hours of throwing up. He is even waking up to throw up. Or more accuratley, twisting his stomach inside out to squeeze whatever resembles any kind of liquid no matter how small an amount. But he is still peeing, which is good..I just can't imagine where it's coming from though.

I wish there was a tattoo that showed up on a child's head letting you know, without doubt, when they needed to be taken to the dr. kind of like how the symbol was hidden on the old school transformers and yo I had to put your finger over it to find out if they were good or evil.

As it is I guess I will just be praying, worrying, and wishing Kev was home to help make this decision.

When they get really bad, try giving them a tablespoon every 10 minutes (set the timer) that way it is likely some will get absorbed. My mom swears on rice water (rice cooked not quite all the way-and then just throwing away the rice and using the pasty water). Flat soda, gatorade. I would say, if he is not too feverish, or lethargic, you are probably ok. Only one time did one of my kids get too dehydrated and that was scary. But I knew it. She was talking nonsense, couldn't hardly move, calling out, just laying everywhere. Call me if you need help tonight. I'll keep my phone by my bed. Hang in there.

Where I work we give 1 teaspoon of pedialyte every 10 minutes. Keep an eye on peeing, but even if his mouth gets too dry or no tears if he cries, have him looked at. Good luck tonight!

Thank you. He finally fell asleep 30 mins ago. I'm just afraid to go to bed incase he needs me.

I didn't know about the 10 minute thing, that is very helpful.

I hope he is feeling better today, and I doubly hope that no one else shares the germs! If you need someone to run to the store for popcicles or anything, even at 3 am call me!

Oh, I'm sorry. I hope he stops vomiting soon. How exhausted you must be. I wish I was there to help you.
