Welcome to HCM!

I am sorry to say that vomiting blood and passing blood in the stools are some serious signs which warrant you to take him to the ER immediately.
It is not advisable to wait till Monday.
Do not give him medicines like motrin.
Show him and get the doctors opinion starightaway.

Good luck
God bless
Dr Uma
