My doctor appointment

I took Eva to the doctor today because for the past week (maybe more) her left eye has been really gunky/crusty and we were afraid she was getting sick or it was infected or something. Well, it turns out that she has a blocked tear duct which I guess is fairly common. So, at least it's not infected but it's still not pretty to look at.
We have to go back in two weeks to check her weight....she went from the 20th percentile to the 13th percentile. She was up to 7 lbs 9 ounces. At her last appointment, she was 7 lbs 1 ounce. So, she is at least gaining weight. But, if she goes down in the percentile any more, we may have to start supplementing with formula. I was hoping that we wouldn't have to do this (for monetary reasons) but, we will do whatever is needed to make sure she is healthy.
