Noah was admitted to hospital on Thursday. He was very dehydrated from the chickenpox. They started an IV and also started him on a continuous feeding pump to rehydrate him. He is doing much better today, but he is still continuing to lose weight. He is not refluxing as bad on the continuous feeding pump, so no one can figure out why he is still losing. He has been labelled as "severe failure to thrive". So right now it is trial and error as they continue to try different types of formula and different concentrations to figure out what will work best for him. Looks like he will be there at least a few more days until he starts to put on some weight.
