Sickness

Well, it appears that what Dorothy has is not a reaction to the shots, but a stomach virus. She has continued to have diarrhea... every hour during the day yesterday. She needs to be coaxed to even take a few ounces. Last night we had two blowouts that got all over her clothes and the crib sheets. Too bad we don't have any disposable waterproof pads, but I'm too afraid to take her out for fear that she'll have an accident while we're out. She was down 9 oz from Tuesday morning when we saw the Dr. this morning. Basically, all we can do is try to get her to take as much fluid as possible.

I hope she's feeling better soon!!! Make sure she's having wet diapers...if that stops, take her in immediately, they can get dehydrated REALLY quickly.

Poor baby. So the doctor doesn't think it could be a reaction to the rotavirus shot?
