Keeping our eyes on a Couple Things Today

Some interesting things have been happening today and the last few as well. Lillian has been losing interest in eating lately; now she likes to fight us every time we try to feed her. And today after eating 20mLs we had to bolus the rest and we tried doing a drawback on the feeding tube to get any air out her stomach and instead we got some bright yellow liquid, which is not what we were expecting. The doctors don't seem too worried about it at the moment, but Andrew and I have noticed that she seems extremely lethargic today and is much fussier than normal. We're a little worried because these mirror the initial heart failure symptoms. And no one can explain the yellow liquid in her stomach. Normally any formula residuals don't change color so we don't think it is that, and it isn't nec either as that would produce a black or red liquid. We'll just have to wait and see for now.
