Little Sarah

I know I missed the weekly picture of Sarah, I promise to get it up soon.

Today we had a doctor's appointment and it did not go well. She has lost more weight. She is now down to 6 lbs 9oz. We are going to supplement with formula and hope that she makes some progress in the next few days. I am scared and this is not fun. If she does not gain on the formula we will need to dome some tests and figure out why she is not gaining weight.

Our main focus over the next couple of days is going to be fattening our little lady up.

I hope to bring better news next time. Please pray for her and that she will be able to put on some weight over the next week or so.

I will get her two week pictures posted soon, I am consumed with feeding right now.

Breastfeed, supplement, pump, repeat...

Charlotte - I'm so sorry! I had to do all of that with Jenna, too - it was such a challenging time. Hang in there! I'm praying for you and Sarah.

oh, man - been there done that. I will definitely be praying for your family. it's so exhausting physically AND emotionally. and it's hard on the whole family when mom is consumed with feeding issues. praying that the supplementing works and sweet miss sarah plumps up quick! it's a privilege to pray for a sister in the Lord I've never even met! hang in there.
