help me fast please

my 8 week old tea cup chihuahua fell and hit his head on the sidewalk. i took him to the vet and they gave him a shot for vomiting and a shot for the awelling. that was yesterday and today he is still not holding his own head up sleeping all the time not eating and will not respond or look at you when you talk to him or pet him. his eyes will open but its like he isnt even aware of anything. what do i do? i called the vet back and he said these things just take time but i feel like i need to be doing something for the little guy! i cant stand this! if you know of anything i should try please please please let me know.
thank you

Once again ginger is correct.  These are signs of central nervous system swelling and should be monitored and treated.

I second that.
He will have had some concussion, and that can cause vomiting, dizziness, lethargy etc.
But the thing you need to be careful of is if there is any bleeding going on. Waiting to 'see what will happen' is maybe not such a good idea.
Take him to another vet as soon as you can. I think that's the wisest thing.

I would get him into a different vet.  It sounds scary to me.  I am new here, but have had dogs all my life.  I wish you well.  Marie
