Yet again, all about my sick step daughter. |
She has been sleeping since 3pm when we got home. She wakes up, coughs, vomits, wants juice, goes back to sleep. She hadn't thrown up for about an hour and I thought "hey, we are in the clear!". She got up, let me change her diaper, said she felt much better, then filled the bowl with puke. This is a mixing bowl, it isn't small, and this tiny three year old filled it to the brim. Should I take her to the emergency room? It would be a far drive, with the possibility of her tossing her cookies in my car, but I don't want her to get dehydrated and nothing is staying down. Am I just being the scared step mom?
tl;dr How sick is sick enough to go to the emergency room? We are talking a kid with the flu possibly.
Please distract me with gifs? I'm freaking the fuck out about her.
UPDATE! I called the on call nurse, and she said to just watch her. Same thing the doctor said when we took her earlier today. WHAT IS WITH THESE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS?
