Alright, so my 2 month old daughter only has 1 kidney so we've been watching her weight and everything to make sure that she's growing appropriately. Today we had her immunizations and a pediatrician appointment. At the public health centre they weighed her and she was at 13lbs 1oz. 2 hours later at the pediatrician she was weighed again, and this time she was 12lbs 3 oz.
So my question is, how is it possible for her to drop so much weight in 2 hours? The pediatrician got me all freaked out saying that now we need to watch her even closer and I need to go into the public health in 2 weeks to weigh her again and if she isn't gaining weight again than I need to see her as soon as possible.
I'm stressing because she also has a heart murmur from her blood moving too quickly, she has slightly high blood pressure, her only kidney and now this on top of it.
