Help hubby has flu and nothing I can do is helping?

Patient : My husband has had the flu since Tuesday. He has been to the hospital 2 times in 2 days. The first time it was because he couldn't hold down any fluids. They gave him 2 bags of Saline Salution and something to calm his stomache. He was fine after we left until about 10 the next morning. He was throwing up again. And again he couldn't hold anything down. Took him back to the hospital they did the same thing the day before and sent him home. He was fine until today. He can't hold anything down. He doesn't want to go back to the hospital and he's complaing of being weak and shakey. What can I do for him?
