yes he has a fever, he has just had some water just to clean out the throwing up
where does he stomach hurt exactly?
What is his temperature?
Are you there
was askin him the hurt is on the lower left side of his stomach and his temp is 100.4
his mother thinks that the stuff he threw up might have had some maroonish color to it
so not on his right side?
And, this has only been going on since this morning?
that is correct
Is he able to keep any fluid down
Is he able to keep any bland food down such as bread?
he has not eaten much at all today
everything he has eaten just came up
he might need to be evaluated by a physician in person
because he might need IV - intravenous fluids - if he can't keep anything down, especially if it is approaching 24 hours
the ask a nurse hotline in San Antonio just called his mother and said the same thing we will watch him over night and take him in the morning unless he has anymore trouble thank you very much
with pain on the Left side and NOT the right side it is unlikely concerning
and if he starts to have pain on the right - THEN bring him in sooner
that is good to know
but you could watch him over night and hopefully he will improve
If you have more questions, I am still here
Try to give him fluids a little bit at a time
A diet we call BRAT - Bananas, Rice, Apples and Toast - is bland
I hope this helps
