Has he had diarrhea or refusing to eat lately?
He started the weak with diarrhea, Tuesday was a fever and wednesday they gave him antibiotics. He went with my ex until Sunday and when I picked up him up he had a wicked cough and shortness of breath. She also said he hasn't drank and ate much and hasn't really had much of an appetite for drinking or eating here.
