Sick kids...

Lily is still sick with her cold and now Marley and Brian are getting it.  Marley coughed and gagged all night last night.  Poor little girl, poor me.  I felt like I didn't get any sleep.  She was crying in her sleep...I felt so bad for her.  I try to make it a habit not to pick her up because I'm afraid she will get used to that.  Around 7:20 or so she started screaming at the top of her lungs.  I picked her up and tried to lay her down next to me.  I could fell that she was soaking wet.  I got her out of her swaddle me and sure enough soaked with pee from head to toe.  For some odd reason they don't start making overnight diapers until size 3 or 4, don't they think little ones sleep through the night?  Anyway I got her changed and dry and she was still so unhappy I ended up feeding her.  She downed her bottle and we straight back to sleep until 10:20.  In fact no one in the house was up until then either.  Must be the weather. 

I called the pediatricians office first thing and told them about Marley.  We thought that it would be a good idea to get her in to be seen just in case.  Especially since New Years is around the corner.  She checked out just fine...weighed 9 lbs 7 oz.  She gained 13 oz in 2 weeks.  Perfect for her age!  Our doctor advised to keep a close eye on her and if she developed a fever of 100.4 or higher or got worse to just take her to Children's ER.  We did also discuss her horrible gas issues.  Marley seems to be in so much pain with it.  The pediatrician gave us a prescription for some new gas drops to try.  She is thinking that if she is having some sort of milk intolerance that this may help with the cramping.  So now she is on Prevacid for reflux and prescription gas drops.  We all hope she grows out of this quickly.
