My 5 yr. old boy was okay yesterday, then when we got home from baseball he starting vomiting, and diareeah, he doesn't want to eat or drink anything, what he has taken in, drink wise he brings up, he just started a fever, I'm very concerned. Is there anything you moms can recommend?

He has probably picked up a really fast acting bug. I would take him to see a doctor if by tomorrow he is still vomiting and having diarrehea as well if his temperature goes up then take him right away. My own doctor oce told me that if I was in doubt, get the child checked out. I know it's hard to take babe to a walk-in-medical clinic or an urgent care center, because of the waits, but if your son is really bad off, you should take him in. Otherwise, if you can keep his temp down and try some pedialite to keep his electrolites up, then keep him home. If he gets worse take him to a doctor. I hope this helps, and I really hope he gets better quickly.
