When 1/2 Pound is a Lot

So our poor little Liliane has been sick for the past few days. It all started on Wednesday and since then she's been fighting this gastrointestinal virus and all that goes with it. She didn't have much of an appetite through the weekend and whatever I could get her to eat seemed to go right through her without any nutrient absorption. This morning I was really worried about her because a negative side effect of this kind of illness is dehydration. So I took her in to see a doctor and she's lost 9 oz since Wednesday. On Wednesday she went in to the doctor for a check-up. At that appointment she weighed in at 15 lbs 2 oz. (Yes- I know she is SMALL!) Then today, she weighed 14 lbs 9 oz. My poor little baby! She doesn't have any weight she can spare which is why I was scared about the whole thing. I think she is on the mend though. She's liking the whole gatorade thing, which is what the doctor told me to give her. (I thought that was funny.) I am so grateful to have my mom close by. She and my sister Tori helped calm me during these past few days. Moms can be so hard on themselves, so its good to have that positive reassurance that you are doing all you can for your baby.
