You have every right to be concerned. Your dog is showing all the classic symptoms of an intestinal obstruction...the vomiting off and on for a week, not eating and the lethargy ..these are all HUGE warning signs that your dog needs to be seen by a vet immediately.
An intestinal obstruction (likely caused by the fact that she has had bones in the past, even though she hasn't had one in a week) is what happens when the dog ingests something that is too big or too bulky to pass through the digestive tract the normal way. It gets stuck on one of the turns in the intestines and stops the flow of everything, causing your dog to get sicker and sicker until the intestine ruptures (if left untreated) and the dog dies.
This is something that is absolutely, positively worth the drive to an emergency vet immediately. If your dog is as sick as she is now, I would strongly urge you to NOT wait until morning to have her seen...intestinal obstructions can turn fatal very quickly, so time is of the essence here.
I hope everything works out.
