Hello. I want to ask my father this afternoon to vomit blood as much as 1 bowl. My father is currently 59 years old. His blood was dark red and also many blood clots. Previously my father had a history of liver disease and also hypertension. This vomiting of blood occurred only at this moment. Previously my father often drained blood from the nose (nosebleeds), from the teeth and also from the urinary tract when urinating. But not as much as vomiting blood this time. Please explain and the solution. Thank you
