Throwing up black stuff can be suggestive of blood.
Stomach bleeding from the ulcers can cause this.
Diarrhea can be from the infection.
Bacterial or viral infection is common.
Infection also can cause bleeding.
This can be a serious condition if not addressed early.
I will not say end is near, as this can be potentially treatable with antibiotics, PPIs, IV fluids in the hospital
Hence, you should take him to the hospital for further evaluation at the earliest.
