Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

You said that he "didn't eat for a day and a half." Does that mean that he is eating now?

How often is he vomiting?

Any blood in his stool?

What color are his gums?

If you press into his abdomen from both sides, is he painful or uncomfortable?
