Lydia's Weight Problems, Cont.

Monday, October 13, 2008

Well, we went to the doctor to make sure that she's still gaining weight like she should, and she isn't. It's been exactly two weeks since her last appointment and she was supposed to have gained 10 oz. Unfortunately, she's only gained 5. That puts her in the 5th percentile still, despite my supplemental efforts. As a result, the doctor has asked that I give her a higher concentration of formula and some blood tests. We're pretty worried about our little girl and hope to find out what's wrong soon.

Oh man. I am so sorry!! I know you have been trying to hard. Hopefully the new formula will help. Good Luck!

From your cousins in AZ: hang in there! Glad to have found you--we LOVE keeping in touch with family through blogs so we hope you'll come check ours out sometime.

So sorry to hear that you're having such a rough time with your BEAUTIFUL little girl. Our first little guy struggled much like this, and boy was it a rough start! His main issue did turn out to be reflux and after finding the right combo of treatment with help from the children's hospital at the U, he did finally begin to grow. You're in our prayers. We hope Lydia begins to gain weight soon! Take care.
