Stomach bug help

My 2 (almost 3) yo son has a horrible stomach bug. We've never had a stomach bug hit us that lasted more than an evening, so I'm at a loss for what to do. The last meal he ate was Thursday at lunch-time, and we're now at Saturday night. Joe is still puking and is super tired. He doesn't walk, doesn't do anything other then sit in a chair, sleep or watch a movie. I feel so bad for him and I don't know if there is anything I can do for him. I got some applesauce in him this afternoon, and I've been trying to push water.

I'm so sorry your little guy is so sick! Is he feeling any better yet? We had a version of the stomach bug that ended up lasting almost a week. It was really horrible so I feel your pain! Have you tried giving him some pedialite? Unfortunately I don't know that there is a lot you can do when it is viral other than just let it run its course. I hope he's feeling better soon and that no one else comes down with it!

My other boy came down with the bug Sunday night, but my almost 3 year-old is almost feelign better. He still can't eat much, but he's not puking or sleeping all day anymore. I think we've gotten over the worst!

Tummy bugs are just the worst! I'm glad that your 3-year-old is feeling better and that you've gotten past the worst. I hope your other guy starts feeling better soon too!
