Tests Results...

Test Results are starting to come back. I wasn't sure if I would post this on here, but so many people have been praying and asking about Sophie's digestive problems, we thought we would. One of her tests came back showing Giardia, which is an infection of the small intestine caused by a parasite. Not uncommon in areas with poor drinking water. So, we are not at all surprised and the treatment is 5 days of medication and then fattening her up. Her weight is only 4 pounds heavier than a year ago. Plus, the pictures I posted are from the disposable camera we sent and were taken just 2 months before she came to us. You can tell her face is fuller in the photos than now. So, it is likely she contacted it a month or so before we received her and she has been losing weight. All I know, is I will be happy for her to be rid of this...I have had enough diaper changes these last few weeks!!!

Sophie is the one in the yellow vest. Pictures are scanned, so not the best of quality. You can click on photos to see closer up.
