I need help from you smart mamas...
Connor's sick, has had a cold for almost 2 weeks (that was getting better) and has been vomiting now since Tuesday night. I'm watching him closely for dehydration, he's still wetting an occassional diaper, so we're okay there.
This morning at about 6am I heard him start to vomit again, my husband quickly rolled him over so he wouldn't choke on it. When he was done vomiting, we laid him back on the bed to start cleaning up. Connor arched his neck back behind him at this funky angle and stayed there. I thought it looked odd so I called his name...nothing. I reached over and tapped his foot...nothing. Right when it started to worry me and I turned on a light, he turned his head back to me and stared blankly, then he suddenly seemed fine. It probably lasted about 30 seconds. Long enough for me to notice it wasn't normal behavior, try to arouse him, and turn on a light.
He's usually listless and lethargic for a few minutes after vomiting, but this wasn't the same.
Could it have been a seizure?? I'm not very well read on seizures...
Now he seems perfectly fine. We changed him, I nursed him, he went back to sleep. I don't know what to think. THe dr wanted me to call today to give him an update on the vomiting...should I mention this? I don't want to cause any needless tests or concern if it's nothing...
