Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I am happy to help you.

Any diarrhea?

Still wants to eat?

Is the vomiting persisting?

Paul

She's eating and drinking. No diarrhea that I've seen. She just vomited again and there was a lot of drywall pieces in it, but they were all relatively small-about the size of a dime.

Thanks.

Here is what you need to do:

No more food until tomorrow

Offer small mount of water frequently

Buy some Zantac and give 1.0 mg/kg three times a day- This will settle the stomach

IF the vomiting continues then she needs to be examined and x-rays or abdominal ultrasound done.

IF she stops vomiting then we can watch till tomorrow and then start back with cooked hamburger and rice.

You should update me in a few hours- I will be up.

Make sense?

Paul
