H and I are in hospital tonight. She has what seems like a virus and just can't keep food in her. She had her consult today, so she is staying in pediatric hospital at least tonight. She has lost 5 lbs in the past week.
Her vomiting is worse in the morning when she wakes up. She was vomiting green today.
They are giving her fluids.

Poor kiddo!!! How is she doing? How did she do with the IV?

That sounds like bad bug. Green means bile. Are they worried at all about an obstruction?

I hope they can get her feeling better SOON. Typically, they will give anti-emetics too to control the nausea. Usually IV Zofran.

Sorry to hear this. Hope that she's on the mend really soon--being in the hospital is so hard, for both kids and their parents.

Hospital stays are the worst
Especially for the mom and lack of sleep
Dh and I switch off since docs round during the day
I take morning till 7 pm and he takes 7 pm to 7 am so I sleep at home and deal with the rest of the family stuff
Took a few years to figure out that combo

Hope she gets better and you get sprung soon

Another rule of hospital admissions -- if your child is fairly sick and you prepare ahead and pack an overnight bag, you will not be admitted.

Conversely, if your child is fairly sick and needs to be hospitalized, you will not have packed an overnight bag to go to the hospital.

My daughter swears these rules are true .

She is doing ok. We stayed the one night and as soon as she could tolerate liquids they weaned her off the iv.
They found out while she was in that she has a vitamin k deficiency and ran some through her iv.
She started eating a bit today. So no worries, I think.

They ran zofran through the iv in the night. She did ok with the iv. The nurse who placed it was great. H said she didn't want to be tricked and that's why she watches the placement. So the nurse treated her like an adult and talked her through it.
