Had a quick visit with the ped (the one we like, not the one from August 21st) this morning. It's turning into a blame game. She blames the LCs for not keeping her informed, they blame us for not wanting to do formula (um, what? Formula was NEVER mentioned to us. And when the Monday consult told us to supplement with breast milk, we followed her instructions exactly). The ped also said that when we told her we were supplementing, she "assumed" we were using formula. Again, talk about a quagmire of miscommunication.
The scary part is that Scotty did not gain any weight from his last weigh-in on Friday night. He is still 7lbs, 13oz. He should be putting on 1-2oz per day. Either their scale is off or there is something else going on. I am so tired of worrying about this. I am just physically and mentally spent right now. We have another appointment tomorrow and are praying his weight goes up. Also had another blood draw this am and are still awaiting the results. We are feeding and feeding and feeding him - I don't know where the food is going. He does not appear dehydrated (per the ped) and his belly is round. Maybe he just needs to catch up.
The good news is that Scotty's poop is finally starting to transition to that yellow-ish color. This should have happened on Day 4. He is now on Day 13. I'm trying hard to be patient, but it's so hard. C'mon...let's get everything resolved so we can get on our way.
Other good news is that the ped told us that since Scotty's bili levels dropped so quickly, there is a good chance the number 29 was artificially elevated due to the dehydration. She thought 21 or 22 was a more accurate number, since it resolved itself within 12 hours (especially after those two boluses). So, thank God for that. We expressed our concerns to her about the Friday ped, and she just nodded. Who knows. They can all sit around and blame each other for all I care at this point.
I'm off to try to steal a quick nap. Brian is back to work today which means I had the nighttime feedings last night. I am so happy my mom is here to help for the next few weeks.
