My son was sent home from school Tuesday throwing up. He got home at 4 he was acting fine, fighting with sis and eating kielbasi. Today he comes down and says, "I got up early and ate 1/2 a bowl of cereal, now my tummy hurts." I tell him, can't go to school anyways. He says okay and runs upstairs to play video games.

He ate today, 2 bowls of cereal, grapes, an egg and cheese muffin, cheese and crackers, 2 bowls of hamburger helper and a bowl of ice cream. He just came downstairs and says I threw up and my tummy hurts real bad.

Still no fever and he was jumping around maybe 10 minutes before he said this.

The school is worried about swine flu already. What do I do? Do I send him? Do you think he's faking? I just can't tell.

  • I think after 3 days you need a doctors note Id take him, it sounds like he is getting over on you a bit, how about taking away the video games and telling him to rest until he feels better...we'll c how fast that bug goes

  • if you haven't make an appointment with the doctor if he is faking he will get better really soon if not then you can get him the medicine he needs

  • Take him to the doctors. If the school is thinking it's swine flu then just take him to be safe.

  • No...his school nurse overreacts ... his only symptom is the throwing up.
