Over the last 5 days, my 5 y/o son has thrown up several times (5 days ago...Wednesday....he threw up twice; yesterday he threw up once; today he has thrown up twice). The food he eats varies from day-to-day, so I don't believe it's a food allergy. This morning he started having bad diarrhea (no consistency, just watery) along with the vomiting. Just a few minutes ago he threw up and there was a small amt. of blood in it. (which I have read can be normal) He doesn't have a fever.
He is drinking (sipping) fluids and I have tried giving him small amounts of bland food, however he's not hungry. Just very thirsty, which is to be expected.
Is there anything going around that fits that description? I mean, like, just some random stomach virus? Opinions, anybody?
