We went to Children's Hospital on Saturday early afternoon. They admitted her overnight for observation. They said she has a virus which is going around where we live. She started to get a rash Sunday morning which apparently goes with the virus. She was released on Sunday night and is doing alright. She has reflux (we already knew this) and they said the virus was making the reflux act up more. They had us giving her two ounces every 2-3 hours of formula. She is having wet diapers now, but still not as many as before.
I spent the night in the hospital with my SIL and Carissa. I noticed she doesn't really seem to wake up for feedings. She will kinda squirm and whine, but if Mom gave her a binky she would go right back to sleep. When the nurses had Mom wake her up every three hours to eat she would take 2 ounces, so I am thinking Mom just needs to wake her up every three hours to feed her. I am going to have to just keep checking in with Mom b/c she is very busy with a four year old, two year old and one year old on top of Carissa. I wonder if maybe time gets away and she doesn't think about how long it has been since she ate last. I know I had trouble in the hospital keeping track of when she last ate.
Thanks for all the advice and thoughts/prayers.
