-When you ask her where her nose, eyes, mouth, head is she will point to it.

The fact still stands. Your chances of getting breast cancer is 1 in 8. But did you know your chances of having a preemie are also 1 in 8? That effects not only you but a helpless baby. Billions of dollars are spent every year on saving preemies and most of the time they can't even tell you why you had them early.

We got there and we went back and they said she is definatly dehydrated because of how lethargic she was and her eyes were so sunken in. It took 3 or 4 IV pokes (not sure because I left I couldn't handle seeing her in so much pain...I've been through months of that to last me a lifetime thank you!). They finally got the IV in her and she was PISSED! I guess she puked she was so mad. Poor thing.
They took blood labs and wanted to get stool samples to see if she had c-diff again but her stool was too liquidy and wasn't enough so they sent us home with a cup (fun fun stuff!!). The Dr. came in and said that he had gotten about 10 kids just today with the same thing and that its just a really bad virus going around that should last anywhere from 7-10days. He said of all the kids that had come in there was probably only 1 that looked worse than Jayda. We waited a few hours for all the blood to come back. They wanted to check to see if the acid levels in her blood showed she needed to be admitted. Luckily it was normal but he said she definatly needed the fluids and that her kidney function levels showed that she was very dehyrdated. He said he almost ordered a bone needle she looked so bad (a bone needle is where they have to drill a hole in their bone and deliver fluids straight to their bone marrow).
The one good thing about how sick she was though was that we got tons of cuddles from her. She just snuggled right in and feel asleep in her daddy's arms (which she HAS NEVER done willingly). Then after they put the IV in she was mad at her daddy because he helped hold her down (took 4 people), so she cuddled up to me and fell asleep on my chest. And anytime a nurse walked in she would scream. She was SO tired though and finally just let her poke her foot without even waking up! Poor thing.
She is feeling a lot better today....just sleeping a lot. They gave us so Zofran for us to give her so she doesnt throw up as much. Then only give her 1 oz of fluid every 15 min. so she doesnt throw it all up. Now the poor thing has horrible diaper rash again so today we are going to the dr to follow up and will have to get some more of that magical butt cream. Hope she feels better soon though, Luckily Chase is taking off today and tomorrow so she'll have both her mommy and daddy! That girl just needs a break and we wouldn't mind one either from all this sickness!

So then we headed over for her appointment. She got 2 immunizations and has done pretty well with them except she is a bit cranky and really tired but thats worth it to me! She was 16lbs even and 27 1/2 inches long. So she didn't gain anything in a month. I'm not worried though at all and neither is Dr. Cain. He wants her to come back in a month to weigh her again just to see if she is gaining. Then if she isn't then we will have to do something. But we think that its just because she started walking and she is burning a TON of calories and plus she had C-diff twice and a cold sooooo I didn't expect her to gain too much. Plus like Chase told the dr. thats 16 times bigger than she was when she was born :D.
We're really trying to push the solids now and she has actually done really well. She ate like a pig yesterday so I don't think she'll have a problem gaining weight. When she started walking she stopped eating as much and was on the go constantly because it was something new for her, but she's calmed down a lot. Plus I love her being little. Its so cute! Here is some pics of us at Red Robin. She is starting that phase of starting to throw temper tantrums. Yes we are that family now where their little kids are screaming and kicking their feet in public. Such a FUN part of development....
Then here is a picture of Jayda and Dr. Cain. He is the one that helped deliver her!

We took her to the park too and she walked around the whole park. It's so funny people at the park were looking at Jayda weird because she was so small walking around. She loved it though. When we got home and I let her walk outside our apartment and she got so ticked when I brought her back inside. She kept pointing out the window and then I let her on the ground and she flipppppppped out! haha So I took her out for some more and she probably would've walked around the neighborhood if I had let her! ha She is too funny!
Oh and I tried to upload a video but it just wont work dang it!

So the labs came back on Monday and the Doctor told me that she tested positive for a bacteria in her intestines called CLostridum Difficile. He said it is caused by getting too many antibotics and it kills the healthy bacteria in her intestines and causes issues. It can be life threatening if not treated but it is pretty rare (more prevalent in elderly patients). The ironic thing is that in order to get rid of it they prescribe a very strong antibiotic. The problem is that she HATES it SO bad. Anytime we give it to her she gags and throws it up. It is nasty stuff and tastes like cough syrup. It takes two people to give it to her. One to squirt it in her mouth and the other to distract her so she doesn't gag and throw it up. We have to give her 8mls 3 times a day!! Thats A LOT! Plus we have to give her 4 mls of her reflux meds twice a day! Thats 32 mls of medicine a day! An little over an ounce! But good news is that is it really starting to work! She has only pooped once today (she usually poops 4 times in the first hour that she wakes up) and her diaper rash is already improving. We are also loading her up with probiotics. She is much much happier now though! Poor girl! It seems like its always something!
