Worries about baby Esther

Esther is the baby who lost her twin sister, almost 3 weeks ago. We have been struggling with Esther as well. i took her for a HIV antibody test, which came out positive. But because Esther is still a baby, so the antibodies can be still from her mother. This week Esther was 6 weeks old, so I could take her to Soroti hospital for the DNA/PCR test. With this test they can see the HIV virus in the blood if it is there. This test is not done in Soroti, the result comes back in 2 weeks. But we are concern about Esther, she is not gaining weight, only loosing a little bit every day. Her colour is not good and we feel she is not as alert as she was before. She is not drinking so well, so we put back the NG tube and we feed her through the tube every 2 hours. We have been several times to the doctor, but there is not a real problem which we could treat. We pray for her and we hope for the best, it is such a beautiful little girl.
