failure to thrive - DD losing weight from birth weight

Postby Justme2 » Sat Sep 20, 2008 7:12 pm

We went to another family dr appointmnet on friday for a weight check

and to my heartbreak norah lost 30 g in one day.

now down to 3430 g

the day before she was at 3430 which again was down from the day before at 3470 and down from 48 hr check of 3480... all together down from 3717 birth weight

and she was having an episode of laboured breathing where it looks like her chest is caving and making holes on either side of her lungs.

so now its a matter of time to wait for a specialist appointment -

dr mentioned failure to thrive- which sends an alert to me because i automatically think the cause is abuse or neglect which obviously in this matter is not the cause to her weight lost.

so now its investigation time- my internet research found good info as to what to exepect- complete blood and urine analysis- possible genetice testins etc etc. and a thorough check list of daily input putput information

oh joy !

please pray for us ! if you are so inclined that the dr's can quickly find a medical reason and she can start to gain without delay.

thanks much
