I am having a similar problem. My site used to have about 1600+ pages indexed and it too started dropping pages at about 50-100 a day. I am at around 680 at last look. Rankings for major KW's remain unchanged but it seems that my refferals from G are down about about 20%. Don't know if this is related or not as at best guess it would appear that I'm losing some of my long tail traffic. My site is also somewhat seasonal and does slow somewhat in the winter time. I recently lost all my old stats so I can't even compare it to previous years.
On another note, orders are WAY DOWN! I've only done about half of my regular business so far this month. I'm hoping this is due more to the economy than anything. I also checked on G Trends and noticed that interest has been gradually falling for these products over the past year so it could be a combination.
