I'm pretty sure it is food poisoning because of how fast it came on. And, dd made him a b-day cake LAST FRIDAY and he ate a piece tonight about 1/2 hour before he threw up. Part of the icing was made with heavy cream - ugh. Poor kid.
But, I'm a little freaked out because ds does not usually have these types of issues. Please pray he gets a good nights rest.

His shivering is slowing down but his temp is rising now.
I just have a sneaking suspicion the frosting on the cake went bad.

Both my brother the MD and my sister the PHD nurse say that fever and chills can accompany food poisoning. They both say that many of the stomach flu illnesses are really food poisoning.
Well...more vomiting. I think this is going to be a looooonnnngggg night.

HOWEVER (and this may be gross to some), I noticed that there was an undigested pickle from his lunch in the last round. So, it may have been something from his lunch that was bad.
No more vomiting last night, but he still has a fever and a headache.
I think I will stay home with him today.
