  • This bug came on so quickly.  She was vomiting and her sugar dropped so fast.  I couldn't get any carbs in her without them coming right back up.  I called Children's hospital and they said to come right in.  Someone needed to drive and someone needed to sit with her and the glucagon shot.  So scary!  She was vomiting every 15-30 min.  When we got there, they gave her zofran to stop the vomiting.  This is the first time she's had a tummy thing since diagnosis, 4 years ago.  We're lucky that we went so long without a stomach virus.  Now I'd like to put her in a bubble  :)

    OMG, that would be SO scary.  I don't know what I'd have done.  My husband works an hour away.  Neighbors are at work during the day.  I guess it would have been an ambulance ride!  Wow.  Scary to think about!  So glad it turned out well for you.  <hug>
    it happened Saturday night, otherwise I would've been in the same boat as you. Thanks so much! Wish I would've known about this site sooner.  Everyone is so kind and truly understands.

  • I'm so sorry that happened.  We went through a similar situation in June, and we ended up with an ambulance ride.  It's awful!  I'm glad your daughter is feeling better now.  <t-up>

    I second the suggestion to ask for a Zofran script to have at home.  They make a tablet that dissolves on the tongue, so they don't have to swallow anything (and possibly throw it back up).
