My poor little lamb was in hospital and now has a bug advice please x

Was admitted to hospital on tues and had to stay overnight on nebs and oxygen due his ????? Asthma related problems.

Since weds he has been vomiting if you put food in front of him and then on thurs developed the worst sweet smelling diarrohoea that nappies just cant contain (tmi sorry). since yesterday lunchtime he has filled his nappy about 15 times and vomited only twice. He wants his milk so have been giving a little bit for the fluid, he's drinking loads more water than he usually does and he has just managed some toast, the poor love hasn't eaten a proper meal since breakfast on tues. How long should I leave it till I take him to the docs is it abut a week of diarroheoa for kids??? I bought diarolyte but he wont drink that (dont blame him) and the new advice is not to starve them but offer lots of carbohydrates and starchy foods etc, as long as he is drinking water do I need to just ride this out?? He is pale which I would expect him to be and he's happy lying on the sofa watching cbeebies, he'll get up to play for 5 mins at a time then that obviously makes him feel rough so he gets all tearful again, just dont want to waste a doctors time.

Aww poor Seb :( A poorly boy is no waste of the docs time hun, I thought it was 3 days with D&V due to deyhdration, but its a good sign if he still has a thirst and hunger. Can you get some rehydration sachets and offer plenty of water based drinks? Milk is probably not so good an idea especially in this weather as it will just curdle with the acid and make it unpleasant for him to bring back up :sadface: Keep him cool today and see how it goes with him, keep an eye on his temp, if he is no better this afternoon I would ring NHS direct and see what they say. Hope he makes a recovery soon sweetie :hugs:

awwwwwww no poor seb! :sadface:

i would have him checked by a dr hun, and keep him well hydrated. when spud is ill like this the dr usually tells me to give him dyoralite, spud doesnt really like it but i put some cordial into it to make it taste nicer, he has had the isotonic drinks too in the past when he wont drink dyoralite....hope he is better soon sweety. send him this from me :hugs:

lulu - is he still doing wees? what is the frequency & colour?
what is the frequency & colour of his diarrhoea?

if the wee is infrequent (ie less than 2 times a day) or dark yellow, or the diarrhoea is yellow colour or green, then you need to take him to the doctors because chances are he might need a drip for a few days at the hospital to get back the vitamins & liquids & salts into his body.

given that it is the weekend coming up, if you can, go to the GPs this afternoon with him.

glad you're going to the docs. sounds like he has salmonella / e-coli poisoning or similar. we all got this (family holiday to Indonesia) about 2 or 3 months back and it was miserable. I got it the worse, and we had to stay in our hotel stopover in Singapore for a couple more days because I literally couldnt go more than a hour or so without vomiting or pooing.

the doc may (but only may) give some immodium, some pro-biotic tablets/drinks and some rehydration tablets IF he feels your DS doesnt need to go to the hospital. I know here in Asia, that they would automatically put the child on a drip in hospital and monitor for a few days just to be on the safe side, but there are more beds & nurses here than in the UK even if the hospitals arent so hi-tech.

My friends twins who are 8mth have been suffering from a really bad bug and they have had this for a week. She has been to the docs and she gave them dirolyte and she told them to put it in crushed ice or an ice lolly. It sounds a lot like what they have had apparently its going round like wild fire, very contagious. I got told bland foods like plain rice and chicken are ok when got a bug and dry toast, try to avoid dairy.

Ah sorry chick didnt know tll now, poor you lot, When J had a bug like that it was on and off for 3 weeks went to Dr's twice & hosi twice, yet they said he was fine you feel like shouting at them he is NOT FINE. One gp said if his eyes are bright his mouth & nappies wet he is ok WTF to the eyes bit??? Oh and keep checking is head if he still has a softspot it will dip inwards when dehydrated, in the end we just fed him milk and water for 3 days and it went. Use the antibacs hand gel every time you feed & change him to help stop the spread.

How did Dr's appointment go hope you are ok lots of love x x x
