Princess Rani looking happier today :)

Well I slept in until 11am this morning - john did the morning I bought Josh and Teagan in around 3pm and then John took them home with him.

Well the Docs came in this morning and seemed happy with how Rani is going so if she continues this way we made be able to come home the middle of next week. *fingers crossed*

Her belly will most probably stay swollen until she has her transplant and although it was up by .5cm this morning it had come back down when they measured it tonight.

Tomorrow she should have her final transfusion of Albumin and the drip point (technical can come out of her arm and she will be able to use both hands again.

Today was a much better day, as she didn't throw up any on her bottles and was going well to have 5 again today (which the Docs are extremely happy with)...

Unfortunately with Rani in Hospital we missed my cousins engagement party and although I knew I could go and John would have done the 'night' shift, I didn't want to take anything away from 'their night' with everyone focussing on how Rani was...iykwim...I'm sure they asked my family but that would have been the end of it, plus I would have got emotional talking about it...

So backin again tomorrow...i have a splitting headache, I really hate the air con at the Hospital it is so high that the second I walk into fresh air my head starts pounding...

Well nothing of excitement to report...night all :)

Hi Mel, thanks for sharing the pic of your gorgeous princess Rani with us! She looks so sweet in the photo and glad to hear that the bottles are staying down. Good on you for getting a sleep in too! I wish I lived closer so that I could drop in and have a cuppa with you and help in some way! Love and hugs!

I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed that she does come home mid week.
