Molly bug is in pretty good spirits, but still has diarrhea. It's been a week. And she's not eating very much. So I called the doc and we headed in this morning. She's lost some weight (was 24 lbs 7 oz at her 15 month check up on the 13th and is now down to 23 lbs 12 oz), but they still think it's just the stomach flu. If she still has diarrhea at the end of the week I am going to have a stool sample analyzed to make sure nothing else is going on. I'm also going to pick up Lactaid to help get some more calories in her. I hope she'll drink it. If her sippy cup has anything but clear (aka water) in it she'll bat it out of my hand immediately. So Pedialyte and gatorade have been a major no go. She did have a pretty good breakfast, but she tends to eat less as the day progresses. Last night was a long one. Let's just say there was lots of screaming. NOTHING made her happy. Here's to hoping she bounces back soon. It's a loooong day when your little one is down for the count and your husband is in another country.

Also, why can't dogs be on the same pee schedule? Is that really too much to ask? Snickers is no longer making it through the night so I've been up letting him out. And of course once he's done outside Sadie wants to go out. I swear she just wants to re-mark wherever he just peed. Yeesh! Stop interrupting my precious sleep you darn furry kids!

Sooo..if I still have the chance to crash with you and N from 2/12-2/16... I shouldn't bring Emma the peeing wonder?

man, I'm so sorry to hear things are still bad :( lemme know if there's anything I can do to help!

(given Snickers' state, I think it's worth reconsidering the doggy door, even a temp one you put in the sliding door just to give you a little more sanity while N's out of the country right now....!!)

Oh dear, sounds like you are having a tough time lately! Give Molly a big squeeze from me and I hope she gets better soon.
