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?
