Congrats.. great that she has gained even though feverish.. maybe she was just taking longer to start back on the uphill gain.. I would still keep close eye on the fever as Wyatt had a fever and ended up having ear infection and his sis also had one without a fever but her ear hurt. Wyatt was running up to 101.6 for a day or 2...

Good Luck

Thanks Donna for the input. I do not trust this doc very much as when my 2 yr old was sick he dismissed it and when I was finally able to get him into our regular peds he had Bronchiolitis, RSV, scarlet fever with strep, pnemonia in both lungs and double ear infections. Talk about sick huh, he already has a low immune system from his tumor disorder so when he gets sick he gets sick.
Anyways enough about that just pointing out that if much else arises or doesnt get better I will be going to our hospitals peds after hours

Sounds like you have a ped that is like some of the ones in the practice where my kids are... Cant stand docs like that.. When it comes to kids you would think that they would want to take their time and make sure they know everything that is wrong with them when they are sick.

I knwo that as soon as I can check out some of the other peds close to where I live I am going to change who they go to.

Good Luck hope nothing like that happens to Samara.. I think I would have had a few words for the doc after that...

He is very clear that I dont like him. I made it known and of course all the nurses know it too, the only reason i see him now is cause my well deserved peds took a well deserved vacation. When he went over seas during the war I threatened to lock him in our basement and hide him out so he couldnt leave but he wouldnt let me.:)
Anyways I hope that you can find a great peds like I have found for my kids. Shoot if you lived here i would insist you see my peds.
Good luck searching and let me know when you find a good doc

I was told babies could loose up to 10% of their birth weight and should regain it by 2 weeks old. Of course my babies always took longer to regain what they had lost but all my kids are just petite. The ped you're seeing sounds like most of them at the practice I go to. I only like OUR ped and if I have to see someone else, I just take the kids to the pediatric clinic instead.
