Stomach Virus

My son is 4 1/2 and he has that stomach virus that's been going around.  He threw up once about 4:00 a.m. Thursday morning.  He has diarrhea and throws up about once a day and once during the night.  My only concern is that this is the 4th day he's been sick.  I really don't know if that's normal or not.  Has anyone else been in my shoes?  Any suggestions?  He hasn't had a fever, just vomiting and diarrhea.  Thanks for any advice!

Call the doctor since there is a risk of dehydration..in the meantime make sure you're giving him plenty of fluids...if he can't hold them down..try giving him a little bit of ice every 30 mins or so.
