VeLvtxRevoLvr213 answered Sunday March 13 2005, 1:20 pm: okay this sounds really really stupid but it helps me every time i throw up. If you have like that stuff that comes in cans like 'fruit medley (sp?)' or peaches in their juice, ANYTHING in a can that has juice in it that is a sweet fruit she should sip. Drain the fruit and just put juice in a cup and let her sip it. It really does settle your stomach. i reccomend pears, peaches, mango, or pinapple juice. x0 i hope she feels better! 0x [ VeLvtxRevoLvr213's advice column | Ask VeLvtxRevoLvr213 A Question ]
sweetjewel answered Sunday March 13 2005, 12:22 pm: you should see if someone can drive her to the doctor, but in the meantime.. all you can do is let her rest with a box of tissues and a warm blanket. since she is throwing up, give her toast and crackers and water.

LiSaxOBaBii answered Sunday March 13 2005, 11:19 am: make sure she gets a lot of fluids and don't put the air on too high even if she's feeling warm because she can't be exposed to cold air or it will make her feel worse. Give her gatorade if you have some. For food, just soups.(Things that she doesn't have to chew)
BeautifulMadness answered Sunday March 13 2005, 11:01 am: She should drink some water slowly until the throwing up stops (only sipping or she'll be sick more!) and then continue drinking another two or three glasses of water so she isn't dehydrated - this should be drunk slowly too. Keep her sitting up and maybe put a small blanket over her to keep her warm. For the flu symptoms, when she isn't being sick, she should drink hot blackcurrant or lemon juice (just add hot water to squash). Get her a little bucket to be sick in and a put a towel on her knee so if she be's sick there it won't matter. She'll feel much better knowing you're looking after her! It would be good if brushed her teeth to get the sick taste away once she's stopped throwing up too. She should eat dry toast and drink water until the being sick TOTALLY stops. Give her a hug and let her watch her fave programme on TV :)

EJ47 answered Sunday March 13 2005, 10:47 am: Ok, one thing. Medicine will not help at all, unless its Thermaflu or something to simply kill the symptoms for a bit. Influenza is a virus, not a bacteria like the cold, so really you can only wait it out.
The vomiting, yes, is from food. The body is in an unusual state during this sickness so it probably doesn't want to accept what it's been fed. Just make sure shes in bed and resting. [ EJ47's advice column | Ask EJ47 A Question ]
SimplyMe answered Sunday March 13 2005, 10:41 am: Actually..food wise..i wouldnt give her anything..when she's throwing up constantly its probaly everything she eats just comes right back up..hot showers are always nice..watching a movie with her might be good to, keeps distraction from being sick..

icey0990 answered Sunday March 13 2005, 10:37 am: soup and teas. But if your mom is throwing up..she might not be able to keep that down. She might have to go to the hospitol if she cant get in to her doctor. When you throw up..the body loses fluids which is dangerous. The best thing for her would be to see a doctor or go to the Er or something. Then, when she stops throwing up..bed rest,peace,soup,and tea is a good idea.
