Hello friends and loved ones! Well, not a whole lot has changed since my last post. Karissa has only gained 1 1/2 ounces and is now at 5 lbs 3 oz. Everyone is getting concerned. Well, we have been concerned but we are more so now. The dr. has us adding a supplement to Megan's pumped milk which we are giving her 3 times a day after regular feedings to try to get her gaining. Also the dr. is going to check her urine for infections if we can ever get her to go in a bag without getting poo mixed in it. They also want Megan to stop all intake of dairy to see if that is bothering Karissa. The dr. said sometimes babies react to mom's intake of dairy and the only sign is they don't gain weight so that means we are having a really hard time finding meals to make for Megan. If any of you have recipes that would not include milk, cheese, cream, butter, etc and not a lot of ingredients that we would have to go out and buy please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please continue to pray. This is real hard and frustrating to be dealing with and pray that we will just trust God to take care of Karissa and bring her through this time. Thank you all!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
