I left them eating pretzels when I went out to the back yard.
As I walked through the living room I see my 8 yo son D1 sitting on the couch with a bowl on his lap.
Oh wait, he’s vomiting into the bowl?
The story I got was that the boys polished off the bag of pretzel sticks I had on the counter, and D1 “tipped the bag up and drank all the salt”.
He promptly began to feel ill. Hmm, I wonder why? He only ate about 1-1/2 TABLESPOONS of coarse salt!
And then he threw up.
I helped him stand up while holding the bowl, and got him situated on the bathroom rug in front of the freshly- cleaned toilet. I brought him a tall glass of cool water, and told him to sip on it.
This all happened about 20 minutes ago.
He’s now on his second glass of water, is walking around the kitchen and asking “What’s for lunch?” He’s fine.
