It's A Girl and The Latest on Alissa

Sorry to combine this, but we are burnt out. We found out Thursday we are having another little girl. Unfortunately, Alissa had a rough weekend. She has now lost over 20 pounds since becoming pregnant and the doctor is more concerned now. He is putting her on total nutrition through her IVs to make sure she and the baby are getting fed. She is on the way to Mission Hospital to be admitted for a few days in order to begin the TPN IV nutrition. After she has been on it for a few days, they will send her home to continue at home. Our new baby girl is doing fine though. Alissa is 17 weeks today with a due date of April 20. We really pray that the TPN will reverse the weight loss and help her make it through the rest of the time.
