Having problems with Sara....

I'm really just upset right now. Maybe upset is the wrong word more like really scared and worried for her. Chris tells me not too worry all is going to be OK. Friends tell me that she'll be fine. But the mama part in me wants to scream for my poor baby girl.

About a month ago she got really sick. Everything was coming out of everything for seven days. She STOPPED eating for two days. She wouldn't eat, wouldn't drink. We did blood tests all came back normal. She got better. She started eating.

But then not even a week after that she started tugging on her belly button and stopped wanting to eat again. She'll eat snack foods, crackers, chips, cookies and anything that is a snack kind of food. But she has stopped and will NOT eat any kind of table food. It started only during dinner time. I took away snacks. Worked for 2 days. Then she stopped eating during lunch. I can not make her eat it. Even if I get some food in too her mouth she just holds it in there.

I can not make her swallow it. We go through this all day long. Now it's also with breakfast. I get excited if she eats more then 3 spoons of oatmeal. I get exited if she eats 1/4 of a PB&J sandwich. She will NOT eat anything at all any more.

Things that she does and will eat for now are:

Chicken nuggets for lunch only if that.
Oatmeal for breakfast only about 3 to 4 spoons of it. before she eat the whole bowl.
1/2 of a waffle for breakfast sometimes.

All that doesn't sound like enough to me.
Katherine and Leda never went through something like this. So yeah, I am worried about her. I don't know what else to do.

I did call her Dr. and they are running more tests. Went in Saturday and had Sara give more blood and we are collecting stool to see if she is having any belly problems.

What I don't understand is that she was fine. She ate everything. I didn't fight with her about food before. She eat like a good baby child would eat. But now she is not and that too me is not normal.

Anyways, I'm just really worried about her. If you can please say a prayer for her that she would get better and be herself again soon. I can tell that this is driving her crazy as well. She gets up during the night now and is not having good night sleep at all.

Here is a pic of her. She LOVES coloring.

Sara being funny...

Thank so much,


  1. Hope things are getting better. Post an update.

  2. I am currently going through the same with Emily. She will eat 4 or 5 pieces of pasta and then nothing. Frustrating!! Judging by what you have listed that she WILL eat, I wouldn't worry too much. What she IS getting is good quality healthy food. Pleanty of vitamins and substance in it. Children will not starve themsleves - if they are truly hungry, they'll eat.
    Hope everything sorts itself out soon. If you need an ear I'm here :)
