Why So Lax?

Vera has been pretty lax lately. She'll be awake, but her limbs are quite flaccid. When I play with her hands, they'll be quite limp. This seems to have coincided with a drop in her milk intake. It seems like she doesn't need as much as before. We can tell because there'll still be milk drawn up through the tube at feeding times.

Is it because she's not getting enough to eat? Because she's not taking semi solid food? Is it because she's overfed and thus feels lethargic? Or because she can't support her own weight? Or is this the first sign of deterioration?

I really don't know.
