On July 6, my son was constantly vomitting, so I took him to the E.R. after I got off work. We checked in at 9pm, and was out of there in an hour! The physician listened to his heartbeat, checked his ears and nose. Only thing he said was "he seemed fine, just a minor ear infection, nothing risky". He prescribed him an anti-vomitting tablet (which was cut in half), though nothing for antibiotic. My son didn't eat regularly and the night before he passed, he was fussy, I assumed he was tired. The next morning, I found him face down on his crib without a heart beat!! Autopsy was done, and examiner concluded it was Sudden Unexplained Death of a Child (since he was face down) and Gastroenteritis (inflammation of stomach and small intestines).
