So a horrible gastro virus is going around my house. I had it for a week and just getting over it. All 5 of the kids have it now. Imagine 5 vomiting children and 2 backed up toilets, not a pretty sight lol
Anyways, Sami is vomiting quite frequently, unable to keep anything down and her output in her ileostomy is large and watery. I know to watch for dehydration and for liver bile (she ends up vomiting liver bile after bouts of vomiting everything else out) but right now she is vomiting stomach bile with quite a bit of thick white mucous. Is this normal? I haven't seen this type of mucous from her before or she has and I've never seen it as she has always vomited into the toilet but right now is using a bucket.
I have talked to her GI nurse but that was earlier before all the mucous. I have another call in but it is clinic day so not sure when they will get back to me.
I also haven't given her, her 6MP yet due to her not being able to keep anything down.
Also is there anything else I can do besides gingerale and pedialyte and gravol?
