On the mend!

Paige was back at the ER last night - this time she got some antibiotics and more medicine for her thrush. She is finally seeming a bit better - drinking good today, and is eating some goldfish (the crackers, not the animal!).

She seems to have a lot of different things going on at once - which is why the symptoms have seemed so willy nilly to me, I guess.

Her weight is also really down - from 60 lbs in October to 36 lbs last night - that's a lot of weight on a kid her size. So, we will keep monitoring that, and work on getting some meat on her little bones once she starts eating again.

Poor monkey was so, so sick...I'm glad to see her a little less miserable.
