Went to the ER...

I couldn't keep throwing up.

They pushed an IV of saline through *really fast*!

And now I'm on another slower one and IV gravol. They also just took some blood and he had to go in blindly because my veins were so dehydrated.

I hate IV's but this beats throwing up.

Hopefully some good news in the morning...

Ohhhh they just came in and I'm getting another anti nauseant!

Thinking about you, delightedbutterfly. Hope you got some rest and a reprieve from the throwing up. :Hug

Aww thanks! I did! After the two IV's and two anti nauseates I actually felt HUNGRY! I came home and ate one of the kids apple sauces and had some water and it was blissful!

Have had some sleep and a friend is going to fill my script for me (DH is working all weekend) and just going to try and keep getting fluid in and Diclectin down! And maybe a bit of food as well!

Oh and the doctor said that something that works for MS is half a cup of lukewarm water, 2 tbls of honey and some lemon and you are supposed to drink that 4 times a day. He had a very thick accent and was older but quite funny. Anyways I remember seeing the same thing on local board and some moms said it really worked. Might have to try it although I'm out of honey and it's not really up my alley but thought I'd pass it along!

That's exactly what it felt like! I can't say I'm 100% yet but I am 1000% better than yesterday!

I'm so glad you went. Sometimes the fluids can work wonders.
