When I was 4,I was eating breakfast before school,and told my mom I didn't feel well. All of a sudden I felt nauseated and ran for the bathroom. I didn't quite make it,and threw up what looked like coffee grounds all over the kitchen floor,then passed out. My mom called my uncle over and asked him to take us to the hospital.
We sat in the waiting room for an hour and a half,and then another half hour or so in the exam room. When the doctor came in,he acted all pissed off and told us it was a stomach virus,and gave us the BRAT diet and liquids talk. Thank goodness the nurse decided to get a weight and height check for me,because while on the scale,I threw up even more blood,this time bright red,and passed out again.
I woke up almost 2 days later in the hospital with IV's of fluids and blood
I had a peptic ulcer in my stomach the size of a dime,and it had perforated.
When my sister was about 3 or 4, my mom took her to the doctor and the doctor's diagnosis was the she needed more attention. She had worms. Unfortunately, this quack of a doctor is still practicing.
