These are pictures from the few days prior to being sick. What a cutie she is. This was taken on Tues., I was headed to an eye appointment and got Charlotte hooked up to her pump and settled in on the floor to watch some Mickey Mouse while her feeding went in.
Playing on her car, she doesn't hang on well, so she always has a spotter, and she also likes to put her feet up on the "dash".
Beautiful blue eyes and her funny side-ways grin.
I don't think I was doing anything special to make her smile, but she was sure excited.
That's all for now... wish me luck for the week to come. I don't know how many outfits I have scrubbed poop out of so far. We are trying to figure out how to help her, but being sick has kind-of set us back as far as that agenda goes. We'll post later this week.
P.S. I know you all are wondering how much weight she has gained. She was actually up to 17# 4 oz, however, this past week, BEFORE she got sick, she had lost weight again and was down to 17# 1 oz last Thursday. Those weights were on the same scale... :( We think the diarrhea is to blame. Hopefully we figure something out to stop that. Also, so far, Charlotte has not been able to tolerate the volume of food that they had hoped. We have had to decrease it once, and will be decreasing the volume again. She just gets too full and it has to go somewhere.
Chris and I are trying to stay optimistic, but honestly, we expected this to be a bit of a trial to figure out what works. Deep down, we were hoping it would be a bit easier, but we haven't had too many breaks so far, so this isn't any different. We are just hoping she won't have to have any more procedures, but that is still something that will have to be determined as we try to fine tune everything.
