Eat Jimmie eat! Eat eat eat eat. Come on little man you HAVE TO EAT!!!! The past few days have been better in that Jimmie has been taking his feedings without as much struggle. However he is taking still less. He should be around 18 to 20 ounces in a 24 hour period. He was averaging 15 which was getting him by calorie wise with the move to formula. Now though-- the past 2 days, he's only taken 12 ounces.
Rachael told me yesterday she feels like hospitalization is inevitable and she just wants to get it over with. I'm hopeful that won't happen, but Jimmie does need to turn this around! Justin is sad and worried as well.
Children's Mercy nutrition is going to see Jimmie next week, but the Neo's can't see him until Sept. 6th. Justin and Rachael are frustrated by that.
Please please please keep praying for Justin, Rachael and Jimmie. This is a really stressful time for them.
Thank you so much for all of your comments under the last post! You all have no idea how much the words of encouragement and ideas/advice lift us up.
P.S. Allison asked a question in the comments and I never know whether I should respond to questions under comments or with the blog. Is there a blog etiquette I should know about? Anyway- I answered under the comments. (-:
