The Appointment....

Well John took Rani to the hospital today as I have managed to catch the flu that is in our household...she was weighed in and weighs 5.7kg. When John went upstairs to the specialist they told us that is what she weighed a week ago when she was discharged from Hospital. We think there is something wrong with their scales as when they weighed her the day before she came home it read 5.560kg, so are they saying that in a day she put on 140 grams...so we are sure that she has gained weight. Anyway after bloods, tube put back in etc he came home.

THEN at 3.30pm the phone rang to say that Rani needs to be re-admitted as her Albumin and Phosphate levels are dangerously low....so again we are waiting on the phone call from admissions as to when a bed is available to have a transfusion of Albumin and Phosphate.

Hopefully only one night in Hospital, as I would really love to have my baby girl home for her first Easter and also for Josh and Teagan to have everyone home when they see what the Easter Bunny bought them.

So she may be admitted Good Friday and you never know we may end up on T.V for the Good Friday Appeal...trying to find some positives.

So incase I don't get back online again until after Easter - HAVE A WONDERFUL EASTER

Hi Mel and John,

Your trials and tribulations with Rani are an enormous source of inspiration to us all. Mel, you must be SUPERWOMAN!!!! Not only do you have all the stress involved with getting Rani back to good health but you have John as well.

Seriously, the strength you guys are showing throughout all of this is nothing short of amazing. No greater love can be shown by a parent than to forsake all other things in their life to guarantee the health and safety of their children. You have my utmost admiration and respect.

Please be assured that should you ever need anything we are only a phone call away.

Have a great Easter.

Kindest regards and love always,
Jacki and David
