What's Wrong With Scarlet?

I took Scarlet and her kittens to the vet today because Scarlet is just not gaining weight.  When I first got her, she weighed 4 pounds 8 ounces.  She got up to 6 pounds and I stopped weighing her, figuring she was well on her way to recovery.  Last week, my boyfriend noticed she was thinner after he had not seen her for a few days.  I weighed her and she had lost weight.  She weighed 5 pounds 6 ounces.  She should weigh 8 or 9 pounds, maybe more since she is still nursing a bit.

They took some blood and will have some results tomorrow and Thursday.  They are sending blood to two different places.  She did have Coccidia and Hookworms when I got her and I hope she doesn't have them still.  She finished the medicine but there is a possibility that it is still in her system.
