Let him sleep. Sleep is essential to rebuild cells and to re-fuel the body after an illness. Unless him not eating or drinking was going on for a long time, and not just a couple of days, his body will re-coup the lost food and fluids and he'll make up for it, you don't have to go crazy and try to nurse him extra. When you're sick, your body will naturally slow down to compensate for the diarhhea and vomiting to conserve energy and nutrients that it already has.
