Customer Question
My 6 year old...

My 6 year old had been vomiting since Sunday night. I have taken her to the doctor twice (once on Monday night and then Tuesday morning) and they have taken bloods but I have been told we can't get the results for them until Thursday or possible Friday. They gave her fluids yesterday and she isn't dehydrated like she was before. she isn't eating but she is drinking apple juice and water. When we came home yesterday afternoon she had a little vomit and small amount of running poo bit had a good night only waking for water a couple of time. she had a very little vomit this morning and but just had another big vomit about 20 min ago. she is still asking for water and apple juice. I'm worried it might be lepto as we live on a cattle property and she was playing in muddy water in the creek on Saturday as we had to fix the fence crossing. the doctors are saying she only has a virus could this be right?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

What?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
