it sounds like your guest could have caught a viral cold or viral gastritis to cause vomiting.
sitting outside in the cold is no good.
that is kind of you to put her in a warm room and care for her
hopefully she will feel better soon and drink some fluids.
sometimes ginger tea can help settle the stomach if there has been nausea and vomiting.
or crackers or biscuits
is it important that she eats something (plain like dry bread)
I like digestible biscuits
I was going to ask about ginger tea..
no, if she does not feel well, and has no appetite, no point to force her to eat.
she will eat when she is ready to eat and feeling better.
getting a thermometer is a good idea.
if her condition worsens, she might have to see a doctor at a local A&E department or hospital
yes re thermometer... I read all kinds of scare stories online about possible causes. What do I need to watch for re it being something serious? NB average waiting time round by us at A&E is about 8 hours
high fevers 39 or 40c
chills, shakes which don't stop, stopping of urination. vomiting which does not stop.
not being able to keep down fluids
hopefully this will not happen.
I hope this information helps.
