Rewind...replay from yesterday.

Yep, still dealing with poop.  Sarah decided to explode around 4:30 this morning.  When I say explode I literally mean it.  Poop covered her bed, the crib railing, the wall.  Not good, especially at 4:30am.  I am not a morning person.  I cleaned up Sarah and the worse of the room and put Sarah in my bed.  I then prayed for no more poop.  I really did not want to clean up my room too.  Sarah slept until 7, then got up drank one sip of pedialyte and went back to bed.  At 9:30 I checked her diaper, it was still dry.  Hmmm, wonder if it was wet at 4:30 when she pooped?  I changed her at midnight and it was wet then.  She was crying and tossing like her tummy hurt so I went in to check and went ahead and changed her.  So either from midnight or 4:30am she has had a dry diaper.  Not good.  She is lethargic.  Will not lift her head or any body part.  Ok, now I am concerned.  I called the pediatrician, and they tell me to take her to the ER and get fluids.  I start to change her and wipe her off to put on some clothes.  She peed.  Just a dribble, but pee.  I then got her to take a few sips of juice.  So I called back the doctor and we decide to force fluids and give her to lunch to have a good wet diaper.  Man did I push the fluids.  She took about 6 oz and had a small wet diaper.  Yippee!  The doctor said to keep watching her and if she goes 6 hours without peeing or is lethargic go to the ER.  She is suppose to be on the BRAT diet, but my hmmm, angel would not eat any of those items.  I did get her to eat mac-n-cheese and drink 4 oz more of pedialyte!!!  She is napping now.  Please pray that she does better this afternoon and will drink and eat for me.  Also, pray for no more poopy.

I decided to check on your little one. I am glad you didn't leave her with the sitter today. I hope you all are at home and not the ER. I am still praying for her!
