Well things just don't seem to be getting better, we were told today that we will be in Hospital for at least another week.

Rani is now being fed constantly via pump at 38ml per hour to see if she can keep the milk in. One good thing is that she actually felt hungry for food and ate half a cup of stewed apples, so I was happy to see her eating.

plus I felt was feeling a bit redundant as there is nothing to do, she is constantly connected to the NG tube, so no bottles to feed, just plenty of cuddle time.

Hopefully today we will have some more test results and it will be a full 24 hours on the continuous feeds so the Docs will be able to see if this is working. :)

The students must be getting ready for their final exams as today we had another 3 'guess what Rani has' ...I wonder how many there will be

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments they truly are appreciated. :)

Oh Mel, I hope that this treatment starts to work for Rani, and she gets well enough soon to have the transplant...

On a funnier side, I love you description of the student doctors... I can remember them vividly when K was in hospital with his diagnosis, and they were asking him silly questions, and because I wasnt allowed to answer, he just looked at them dumbfoundedly!

(((((((((((Huggles))))))))) for you and your princess

Hi Mel, that is promising news that Rani was hungry for food! I hope those student doctors are learning all they can to help with cases like Rani's!

Since I've been away, I've missed your updates... at least the latest (this one!) sounds a bit more promising! I hope that Rani continues to be hungry, surely that'd have to be a good sign that her metabolism is picking up?
Hugs to you and your family and specially to little Rani!

Hey sweetie I'm glad our little Rani is feeling hungry. She always needs her mumma hon, with or without the bottle. Give her a big Chrissy cuddle for me and hugs to Teagan and Josh too ok?

Lots of huggles and prayers!
