After the last disastrous weigh in at her shots appt, Dr. Golightly wanted me to bring her back in a couple weeks to monitor her. So I got Lily weighed today, she's up to 16 lbs 3 oz, so that is half an ounce a day for 2 weeks, which is better than 3 ounces in 3 weeks. That ends up being 15 grams a day for the past two weeks, which is the minimum Dr. Simon would like to see. When you account for the 35 days since her weigh-in September 5th, which was the last time it looked like she was gaining at a good pace, and the total of 10 ounces she's gained since then, it averages out to 8.1 grams a day, which is still much lower than the 21.5/day pace she was gaining at.
Some of you may wonder why I worry about this so much, but poor weight gain is often times (but not always) an indicator of poor heart function. So yes, I obsess. It may mean nothing, or it might mean something, at this point we will see when we return to cardiology on Oct 21st. Until then, keep us in your prayers.
