first of all...she is ok....we took her home at 12:30....we were there for about 4 hours !
she was running a temp when we got there.....my little girl had come down with a little virus ! The past few days she just was not acting right, and Mick and I decided we should take her to the hospital...better to be safe than sorry.

they gave her pedialyte & did bloodwork.....I had to leave the room...I couldnt bear to hear her screaming...
the lab tech had to draw from both arms because she couldnt get it from one! ugh !!!
Mick's cousin is an ER nurse so she was with us the whole time and stayed in the hall with me to keep my occupied while Katie was getting bloodwork. It took 4 people to hold her still......my little girl is STRONG.

The dr. said it just has to run its course give her tylenol if she has a fever & give her pedialyte in between feedings.The dr. also said I am feeding her too often......it should be every 4 hours.....well if she is hungry every 3, then that is when I am feeding her !!
geez !

she now weighs 11 lbs 10 oz !

today she has been resting alot but is sooooooooooo happy ! smiling and cooing !! so she is doing better !!
so ladies between taking care of my sweetie and getting ready for my mom's visit this friday.....I may not be around too much.....

Ok, that doctor was crazy to tell you that she should only be eating every 4 hours!! If you are nursing it could be as close as every two hours and if you are bottle feeding than 2 1/2 to 3 is normal at her age!! Crazy Doctor!

Glad she is doing better!!!!

I'm so sorry hun and I'm glad she is feeling better. That doctor was so wrong in telling you that you're feeding her too much. Babies feed on their own schedule, not theirs. Ethanael went through a phase where he was nursing every hour and he's just fine. You do what you feel Katie needs and what is best for her. They don't know Katie and how she feels.

OMG, I bet you were scared to death, Dee. I'm so glad Katie is feeling better and it was nothing too serious. I hope she starts feeling even better and you get ready for your mom.

How scarey that you had to take Katie, in but thank goodness she is alright. It sounds like she is already on the road to recovery. I know what you mean about having to leave the room when they drew Katie's blood. I always made carlos take Sophie, because I just couldn't stand watching them hurt my baby!
