I'm sorry you're so sick. sad
 
When you've got that much output with vomiting, dehydration can happen really quickly, so I would call your doctor first thing tomorrow (or tonight, if you start to feel dizzy and weak).
 
You can get IV fluids at the hospital or at an infusion center, which will make you feel so much better. I hope you feel better soon!

if you are getting dizzy and weak like she said, or if you start to have trouble breathing or if you have confusion go ahead and go get fluids, you will feel much better.
For some reason that i do not understand, being dehydrated actually makes it harder to hold stuff down and will lots of times cause you to throw up when you do try to drink or eat.
You will feel so much better if you just go to the ER and get some fluids and phenogren to slow stuff down.
Get better!
