Our sweet little lump of sugar is SICK!

Just a little post to let you know what's going on.

I brought Sarah back to the doctor's office on Wednesday because I was afraid that she was dehydrating from all of the vomiting and pooping. The doctor said she was fine and to wait it out.

I brought her back to the doctor today with a dirty diaper safely tucked in a ziploc bag so they could take stool samples. They are testing for rotavirus, along with other nasty parasites. Blood work was also drawn to determine if her electrolytes, etc. are okay. I'm waiting for the results now. Looks like we may have to bring her back to the hospital this afternoon so that they can put her on an I.V. to pump her up with fluids, since she has not wet a diaper since Wednesday (which worries the crap out of ME!). They may keep her overnight.

She will not eat or drink very much, at all. I managed to get an ounce of formula in her about twenty minutes ago. And trying to get her to drink Pedialyte is like medicating a cat!

She's laughing and playing and having a grande olde time; like her brother, you can't tell that she's sick when she is, just by looking at her. Every now and then though, she'll put her cheek to the floor like she's just flat worn out.

This week has been a roller coaster with her doing very good at times, then going back downhill.

Phillip's parents are on alert and will be here tomorrow, if not sooner.
Say a prayer for our little Sarah-Belle, please.
