At our dr.'s appointment yesterday we talked about leaving Teagan's feeding tube out for a 'trial' run to see if she can do it. Dr. Lawrence agreed to give it until wed. and we'll see if she gains any weight and can handle her feeds. So for now, no feeding tube! We are still trying to figure out what is causing the bloody diapers. The new plan is to feed her straight formula (no breastmilk at all) until wed. and see if it clears up. (the formula is hypo-allergenic) If it does, then we know its something in my milk. If she is still having blood in her diaper then we'll talk about doing more invasive testing. She hasn't been eating as much as she should today so I'm preparing myself to possibly put the tube back in. We'll see how tonight goes!
Gav has been really sweet today. I found him in the living room wiping the coffee table with a baby wipe. When he saw me watching he said,"look mom I cleaned the house for you!" So sweet! (if only it were that easy!)
