Froggy came down with a stomach virus on Friday and hasn't eaten much. She's lost some weight, but finally started eating again today. This mama was nervous and almost cried when Froggy ate a piece of bacon today.
We met with the GI doc and here are the facts:
We have four appointments in the next two weeks. They'll run tests on Froggy's GI system to make sure everything runs smoothly and all organs are in the right place.
We'll meet with our GI doc again on the 16th to discuss the results of everything and most likely will go into the hospital for the g-tube at the end of February. Froggy will spend three days in the hospital and have to wear a big tube for about three months. After that, her tube will be replaced with a button.
I welcome any advice, help, words of wisdom regarding the g-tube. We are entering unchartered territory and it's scary.
Froggy at 53 months:
Weight: 31 pounds
Height: 3 feet 3 inches
BMI: 14.3 (20th percentile)
And a little Froggyism...
Tonight we were snuggling in bed discussing nicknames. Froggy asked mine, I said, "Lisi, Spucky, Froggymama, and my mean older sister used to call me Wienie."
I said, "You have nicknames too. Froggy, Addiecakes, Babybean, honeybuns, etc, etc." Froggy said, "No my nickname is Matches, call me Matches."
What? She is such a weirdo. I bought her a new little pet toy and she named him "fruit treat." What a goof.
