  • poor baby girl :( my get better thoughts are with her and u mama. is there another er by u? ( were i live we have 3 ) i would try and take her to a new place. eaither way keep in touch with her doc. and try and keep her hydrated as best u can. when i was really really sick ( not as sick as babygirl ) but the ONLY thing i could drink and keep down was gatoraid orange. and every so offten a cracker or to. toast. when are you gonna get the stool results? if they find nothing i would try another place it dosent sound like a bug thing. and keep an eye on her temp u dont want it to get to high keep her cool and comfy. i wish i could help. i hope she feels better real soon. hugs to her and u mama.

  • What is she eating and drinking? Are you taking her to her Dr or the ER? I think it would be best if you stick with one Dr, even if there is more then one in the practice she goes to.

  • don't take her to the ER.. ER docs are not good at diagnosing pediatrics, they are for EMERGENCY use, and although this feels like an emergency, she does not have a brain bleed so they are not the ones to help the baby. You should wait for the results
