Gastro.

My son started vomiting non-stop in the afternoon. An hour later, I started vomiting non-stop. A few hours after that, even my daughter started vomiting non-stop, then I started with diarrhea. As I was feeling weaker and weaker and the situation was only getting worse - we decided to go to the emergency room where they diagnosed us with Gastroenteritis.
