    Yes! If it is a bacteria- go back!! My friend's 5 year old daughter just had an E. Coli type bacteria. She had the pukes and poops too- that was how it started. She was in the hospital for 3.5 weeks, had daily dialysis for about a week of that and a bunch of blood transfusions. It was super scary and life threatening. She is recovered now (this was around Thanksgiving) but it was really touch and go for a bit. Before this, totally healthy 5 year old. She is in kindergarten at the school where I teach (not my class because we are good friends) but just 3 days before this hit, she was running and playing all over the playground.

    Trust your instincts on returning to the hospital, and as another has advised, keep track of your daughters urine output - if she can go as long as 8 hours without needing to go then you do need to head back for more IV fluids.

    Good luck and thank goodness you didn't get on the ship - can you imagine having to deal with a hospital at one of the ports by yourself?! Hoping you will both get some rest and relief very soon!

    So today she is brighter. No vomiting! Her melds stayed down so doc cleared her to stay at the resort. She managed to watch the animal feeding for about 30 mins. She is on fluids only and only wants ginger ale. Hotel sent her chicken broth as well. We got a call at noon saying they were sending us a "big surprise" but our do not disturb sign was on the door. I removed it and phoned but nothing has been sent up. I feel odd calling and saying hey where's our surprise? Lol. But of course dying to see what it is. :)

    Great to hear! Keep taking good care of your babe.

    Disney sent us balloons, autographed character card and toy when our child was hospitalized. Hope your DD enjoys the surprise.

    Such wonderful news!!!! That's so cool that she was able to see the animal feeding. There could be much worse places to be stuck sick. Sending healing hugs to you and your daughter-hope you are able to get much needed sleep tonight!

    OP - So glad your daughter is feeling better. Hopefully, some of your vacation can be salvaged. You should rest before you get sick!

    I almost stopped reading this thread after the first couple of pages. Those of you who take your kids on ships sick (or encourage others to do so) are the reason we can't/won't cruise DCL anymore. Ten cruises and other than seasickness, we've only had problems twice. Both on DCL. That isn't a coincidence. If you or your children are sick, or have been sick and could possibly still be contagious (look it up, don't guess!), stay home. Otherwise, you are exposing other families to your illness and ruining THEIR vacation.

    Okay, I'm off my soapbox now. Again, OP, I'm glad your daughter is on the mend.
