First of all, Karsie has been doing well since being backed off of 25 calories. Today she has had only one spitup, which was very small to begin with, and overall she has been having only one or two since being backed off (which was on Saturday). She has been seeming much happier since then as well. We are hoping that all is accompanied by weight gain.
She lost quite a bit of weight a couple nights ago we think due in part to her getting medicine that flushes out her system. That naturally takes away their weight. Yesterday she gained a bunch of it back, but we're still not seeing the consistent weight gain that will get her out of the hospital. We hope that since she is not throwing up as much that she will be able to grow, but much of her food goes directly to Pinky.
Listen up Karsie. It's this simple: Gain weight = Go home.
