  • If you're vomiting it is most likely not flu but a stomach virus.

  • if you have to take him to the hosp. again don't go where you went. goto a children's hospital or if you can't, insist on a pediatric nurse.

    fluids, sleep, drugs, popcicles, jello, those fancy kleenex with the lotion. and if you're really REALLY sick don't be afraid to hit the er for iv fluids and zofran

  • just by resting & know that it will pass soon. sleep it off if possible. & after your better buy yourself a box of Emergen-c. i love the stuff, it truly works for my family. it boost ur immune system. try takeing a glass of it once a week at least. & depending on the age of ur son, i hear they make it for kids now too
