Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

can you call a doctor? or urgent care? the dark brown sounds maybe like the stomach acid as he has nothing in his stomach. is he drinking anything??? i wouldnt say he looked really bad, but he is pale.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

ok, trying to think of everything about dehydration i've picked up from my ds's many nurses.
is his mouth still wet? does he cry tears? if you pinch his skin does it snap back instantly??

He hasn't been crying, just whining...so I'm not sure on the tears thing...but my guess would be yes. His mouth is wet, though not dripping wet. Diaper is still dry, but it's only been about an hour..*maybe* 90 minutes. He's very lethargic though...like he can't hold his eyes open.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

i would call a doctor.
if he still has tears and a wet mouth then hes not severly dehydrated. keep pushing fluids, if he wont drink them use a sryinge to make him drink, will he eat a ice pole??

Like a popsicle? No, he wouldn't. I'm going to wake my husband up though and send him for pedialyte.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

the stuff tastes foul tho so be prepared for him not drinking that either. would he drink flat soda? i know its not healthy but it has sugar in it which will keep his energy up and it works great for settling tummys

Can you make soda flat? We might have one small bottle of sprite.
