Remember last week when I said something about finally being able to breath and Qiana getting better....wow, apparently that was totally PREMATURE!. Cause this is what my friday looked like.
After she had been throwing up I took her to the doctor again...and she had lost a WHOLE LB. in just two days. They put a catheter in to test for a UTI (urine very dark, but negative), then had to draw some blood (getting a needle in was tough since a. she's a baby and b. she's a chubby baby with veins that can easily hide when prodded), then we sat in the procedure room while they pumped in 3 bags of fluid in an iv.
Her bloodwork and U/A were normal so she was just really really dehydrated. poor girl.
Over the weekend we tried pedialyte, successfully for about a day then she wasn't having it, and she has yet to drink more than 4 ozs., no matter how long it has been since her last bottle. It is just so weird to have my girl go from this
And what is worse than having a sick baby....being sick with a sick baby!
Yep, to add even more bad news to my week, at about 4am sunday morning I was hit with the most painful stomach cramps EVER! OH MAN, I thought I was going to die. Needless to say I spent sunday either in bed or in the bathroom. Luckily my awesome roommate Emily was able to watch Qiana, in between her naps, which is such a blessing cause I could barely move, let alone hold and take care of a baby. But I am much better now, and hopefully Qiana is on her way there!
