MORE ON LEXIE
1. Gently pinch the skin. It should immediately fall. If it stays up (skin tent) there is dehydration.
2. Touch the gums. They should feel moist. There should be no "stickiness" to them and your finger should release very easily.
3. Gently press an area of the gums until it goes white and release. It should turn pink again in no more than 2 seconds.
Dehydration is VERY serious. Thankfully, Lexie is much better.
Lexie felt very safe next to him. Scooter is almost 13-- a birthday blog will be coming soon!
