Hi, does anyone know if anything out there to drink as a supplement besides Gatorade and Pedialyte?   Maybe easier to keep down?   My son is on day 10 of his third cycle, we are back in the ER for fluids and potassium.   He only puked twice today and yesterday so hoping we are moving slowly into recovery, but we think his cycle is being prolonged by the fact he can't / won't drink anything but water.   He "can't stand" the taste of Gatorade (too sweet) or Pedia Lyte (gross).   Any suggestions?   Much appreciated in advance.

C2o coconut water. Plain has potassium too.

My son will only use Powerade. And even then, only certain colors.

That is very true.. can be scary to see all that read! But, we know that if it were blood, it would be a different shade. Definitely a different consistency. The hospital we frequent only has red or blue gatorade.. they must not have gotten the memo. [biggrin]

Jacen Vomits the rainbow anyway. So just helps with the spectacular color array.
