Unhappy I need help. My hedgie is dying =(

We have an adult hedgehog, Splinter. The last 4 days he has no been eating or drinking and has become extremely lethargic and progressively less responsive. He doesn't even roll up to lay down or sleep like he normally does. He lays flat on his stomach like a limp rag. We have been trying to syringe-feed him, but he fights it vigorously and throws up whatever we do manage to get him to eat/drink. We are very worried about him and the only vet within 100 miles of us who will see exotic pets is on vacation until Monday! I've been trying to research as much as possible, but I'm lost for what I can possibly do. So here are the facts:

*His tummy is warm, not cold
*He is able to roll into a ball
*He still responds defensively to sounds or unexpected contact
*Raising his temperature has done nothing to improve his situation
*His breathing has been normal
*He has not been pooping, but he has been urinating.
