Rotovirus (insert sigh here)

Here is Daddy sleeping next to Maryam on Wednesday morning when she woke up at 5am not feeling well. He rocked her for a while, then laid her down in her bed. He proceeded to pat her butt and rub her back until she fell asleep. Looks like he got a little nap in there too!
We had to take Maryam back in to the doctor today because she's on her 6th day of diarrhea. Her doctor said that her symptoms sound like Rotovirus, which is unfortunately VERY contagious. HOPEFULLY Ian and Anna didn't catch it from her on Tuesday night. Dr. Mohan told us to keep giving her the Pedialyte through today and start her on half formula/half Pedialyte tomorrow and see how she does. We can't let her lose too much weight, and we don't want her to get dehydrated. The next few days is going to be trying to find a good balance for her tummy. Wish us luck!
I added this picture because she just looks SO grown-up! I can't get over how much my little girl has grown in the past two years.
