    Day started as usual Aiden was fine and dandy, had his milk playing on the rug with his tv on etc, i was due to go a big party at a mates in the evening so was getting the chilli in the slowcooker and getting sorted.
    Aiden had a nap, bath seemed fine... then second bott he just projectile puked all over me and the floor, never seem so much spew in my life!!, anyway bathed him again and lay him dowm, then the runs, wouldnt eat, very sleepy, just got worse and worse.... rang NHS direct nurse said if ill will be drowsy, now he was REALLY HOT, stripped him he couldnt even stay awake while changing him, so i went to the walk in... after a wait of 40 mins covered in puke (again in the car and carpark) i got seen. Doc took one look and rang the hosp then 999... well you can imagine i was beside myself, we could hardly wake him, pale anf quite floppy, was throwing in ambulance still.
    Anyway when we got there... nothing no rush to see him, "sit in waiting area" i was livid... waited waited, then was seen about half hour later and aiden had woken slightly, checked major obs and said needed a ward for rehyd etc - ANYWAY - 4 whole hrs later (i could of walked) we got a rehyd syringe to do ourselves in a waiting are NO BED 8 at night poor thing was knackered, we got seen and they sent us home viral infection... i was amazed... from 999 to leaving us like that.... what a load of shit!!!! hosp couldnt give a toss he'd not obv eaten or drank all day and sick n dia.... was not happy felt a waste of time and could of done bett myslef!!

    aw :hugs: i hope he feels better.
    poor thing!!
    which hospital did you go to chick, kings mill or queens medical. i ask because weve had experience with both AnE departments and they were equally crap.
    we took alfie one night he was weezing, tuggingc chest in, they said not to worry its just broncholitis and hell get over it, took him the night after and they had to put a tube down his nose to feed him and he had to be put on an oxygen machine, :dohh:
    i sometimes wonder why i bother to pay taxes,

    SOunds really scary! Glad hes a bit brighter this morning!

    That hospital sounds bloody awful! After calling an ambulance for a baby you would think they would jump into action right away! I get that they are busy, but it could have been anything! Id put in a complaint!

    aw hun :( we had a few of those when Seth was a baby, youngest being 7 weeks old. It's awful seeing them like that. And then they made us do the dioralite syringes ourselves as well.

    You can get that rehydration stuff over the counter, we keep some in the house now just incase :)

    Hope he's feeling better xxx

    We had the same with our DD a few weeks ago (although without the 999 call) she was perfectly fine one minute the next she was throwing all her feeds up, really hot, wouldn't settle. We took her to the Dr and he told us to carry on as we were with her...2 days later she was the same so we took her back and they sent us straight to the hospital.

    They sat us in the childrens ward with a syringe a bottle of dioralyte..10ml every 10 minutes..After 8 hours they sent us home....Viral gastroenteritis.. Told us to keep her on the dioralyte for 24 hours..She was right as rain after that.

    I hope you're little man feels better soon..It's horrible when their throwing up what looks like their own weight in puke. :hugs:
