Question Sickness & Recovery

Hello everyone!
I've been away from fitday for the past couple of weeks because I've been ill. Due to the illness (a combination of adjusting to Metformin & and ear/sinus infection), I have not been able to keep much down and so have rapidly lost weight. I understand that this is unhealthy and that the weight will come back as soon as I am able to eat normally again; however, I would love some tips on how to cope with nausea as well as how to ensure that I still get vitamins and minerals without overloading my (apparently) sensitive stomache.

On a really good day I can drink milk and broth, eat around 2 oz of meat, a piece of fruit, and a fist sized serving of broccoli.

On a bad day, like today, I can only keep down a couple oz of Pedialyte and a saltine with the help of Nauzene tablets.

Any suggestions will not fall on deaf ears! I've reached the point of desperation- I'd like to be able to eat again!
