4 year old DD2 was fine yesterday. This morning she overslept by an hour, which is quite unusual. When she woke she was unusually lethargic and her lips very pale and whitish. She got up to have a drink of water, as she normally does, but after having a sip, she put down the cup and gagged and said she felt like puking. She went to the sink, retched, but only a few drops of what looked like the water she drank came out. I asked her if she felt a bit sick, she said yes, and I asked her if she would like some breakfast, she said okay. I was a bit doubtful she could eat, so instead of milk and cereal I just made a slice of toast with some butter on. She had two bites off it and said she didn't feel like eating, and just felt very tired. So I got her back into bed and told her to lie and rest until she felt better. She did. Then a few minutes later, she ran to toilet and puked out little chunks of bread that she had just had before.
So it seems like she can't eat nor drink for now. I just checked her temperature and she is not running a fever. Since she vomited she has just been lying in her bed tucked up and her eyes closed as if she's sleeping. What could be the problem? Do you think it could just be a simple case of food poisoning perhaps? Or could it be a viral infection of some kind? Or is it the warm weather this weekend? The other children seem fine and don't seem to be ill though DS slept rather badly last night, woke up a few times saying he feels hot. I took away his blankets and had him sleep in a short sleeve tee and light trousers and he still feels warm and sweaty though just checked he doesn't have a temperature either and he ate fine this morning.
