or drinking. Saying that he feels 100% better is putting it mildly. Within 12 hours of being on the antibiotic for Giardia Baby G was a new little kid. He hasn't thrown up or had diarrhea again. Bless modern medicine. Giardia is a sickness that kills people (especially children) in developing countries. I feel so blessed (and maybe even a little guilty) that the access to doctors, hospitals, and medicine is so readily available. Baby G was truly starting to worry us. He had lost too much weight and was looking awful. He was lethargic and sad. He is the complete opposite of that now. He has gained almost 5 pounds. On a little body that is a LOT of weight. Like I said, he really hasn't stopped eating. He didn't even eat like this before the Giardia, and I am wondering if his appetite is going to slow down at all once he makes up for all the calories he lost when he was sick. He ate three (three!) scrambled eggs for breakfast and then wanted graham crackers. Isn't it funny how we, as mothers, feel like we are doing a good job when our children have full tummies? It is so stressful to have to work to get your child to eat-- I am grateful to have gotten to this side. Hopefully this will be the last Giardia post from me. I am ready to close that chapter and move on to all the other fun things we've been doing since we've been healthy. More to come soon.
