I am away from my family and worried about my fathers health.

He is in his 70's, on heart medication, has had the sniffles for what seems like 9 months or more, has been eating less, the last few weeks has been extremely fatigued, vomiting every time he stands up, and has been sitting in the dark for much of the time which I think means he has a sore head or is sensitive to the light. He finds it hard to explain why he feels so bad, he just says he does not feel right.
He just spent the last day and a half at the hospital, all blood tests, xrays etc have come back fine, including his heart. Yet, still, he feels awful and continues to vomit when he gets up, like motion sickness i guess. Never mind that he just is not quite right. (The vomiting started a few weeks ago when he was taking cold medicine. He stopped that incase it was giving him a reaction, but the nausea and vomiting have become worse, so he is eating less and therefore losing weight and feeling weak)
We are feeling distressed, unable to help and wonder what else could it be so we can encourage more tests or something.
Any ideas of what we can do or on how we can help him feel more comfortable are much appreciated.
thanks everyone, and good health to all...
