  • Make the doctor run more tests. Or go get a second opinion.

  • Follow your mother gut instinct, if you know something is off, demand testing done and if necessary get a second opinion.

  • if your worried always get a second opinion....but dont panic about the blood...i had the same thing happen to me....they ran tests and found nothing...but what they did find was that my throat was so irritated it was bleeding....its what caused the blood in the vomit....but your son is young enough he cant tell you if his throat is bothering him....get a second opinion if your not sure....ESPECIALLY if he does it again!
