My daughter puked at least 10 times last night: lots of big chunks of citrus at first ending in blood the last few heaves. We took her to the hospital about 3:30 am, or so, where the puking finally subsided, they put her on an IV and she’s still there, now ready to come home and ease into gentle foods again. She’s missing school today and my wife and I are both out of the office. Big lesson learned.
Apparently she ate quite a few segments of Pomelo at nanny’s house yesterday afternoon.
There were several kids in ER puking last night, we overheard the mother next to us saying her girl was also sick from Pomelo, and when the doctor heard our girl had eaten Pomelo yesterday she immediately nodded knowingly and responded that it’s extremely difficult to digest and should be given very sparingly to children.
Here’s further confirmation.
So, this Moon Festival season I suggest you don’t let your kids get carried away with the Pomelo.
