The Doctor's have been concerned for some time about Liberty's slow weight gain. My concern has been about her poop not changing from newborn to the seedy older baby poop. I went ahead and had some testing done. Yesterday I must have walked 5 miles between going to an office that no longer did testing on newborns but it was a nice day and I was alone with Libby so it was OK. Today I got a call from the Doctor and he was very concerned, her heart was abnormally large, and her liver tests came back with cause for concern on 3 different tests.
She will be admitted to Children's Hospital on Monday and they estimate that her stay will be up to a week.
I am asking for prayers for:
~Sean and I to discern what is medically necessary for her
~Wisdom for the doctors
~That the doctors will share the same faith and beliefs that we do
~Peace and protection for our other children
~Healing for Liberty
Whatever else I may have forgotten. Sean just told me that the doctor's diagnosis is failure to thrive. That makes me angry, she is a beautiful happy baby. She nurses well and is content and is developing normally.
