    Son throws up after visiting father

    I am going through a divorce and my ex has been getting my son one day over the weekend and bringing him home at the end of the day. My son seems to feel fine and eats his dinner and goes to bed. The next morning when I go to get him up, the has thrown up all over his bed at some point during the night. This has happened the last four weekends in a row.

When we returned, there was still a faint paint smell in my toddler's....
