Can Someone Please Help Me My Sister Is Sick
My parents are away on a trip so I am taking care of my sister and myself, even though she's just 2 and a half years younger than me. Yesterday she wasn't acting like her self at all and she was getting tired really easy. When she got up this morning she started complaining that she felt nauseous, was kind of pale, felt generally and that she had a fever. Which she did it was around 100 about a hour ago. She's been resting most of the day, but her stomach is still really bothering her, and she's only gagged a couple of time, almost like dry heaving. What should I do if she starts throwing up? Should I stay with her or not? I've seen people put clothes on other's foreheads and back of the necks when they are vomiting, does that really help anything? Should I make her sleep in the bathroom or put a bucket by her head? I've heard that water makes vomiting and nausea worse is that true? and if it is then what should I give her to keep her from getting dehydrated? How often should I take her temperature? I would greatly appricate any tips that you all have for me so I can help my sister feel better.
