My Bubbas Cheeks

Isn't it funny, I suppose seeing Rani everyday I don't notice the full extent of her weight gain, but tonight my sister came in for night duty...lol...and when she picked up Rani I couldn't believe how big she was...her cheeks are absolutely huge...i must remember to take a pic of her sitting up. She has certainly piled on the weight and everyone is very happy with her progress. Her Specialist called her a Super Star and even the Head Transplant Co-ordinator dropped into to see us because of the Specialist remarks...lol

So her TPN was upped today, and we are slowly heading towards the minimum 7k mark, so with more proteins and fats going in it has to make the weight go up.

She is back on the transplant list tomorrow, although the Head Transplant Co-ordinator told us that if the perfect liver had of come up in the last 2 weks that would have given it to Rani, something our Co-ordinator forgot to say.

She is still classed as stable, although she is throwing up a lot more which is becoming a bit of a concern as to the risk of aggrevating her Varices, but she is also drinking lots more and seems to be getting a cold. So they are watching everything.

I, as everyone is sick of the Hospital and can't wait to take our baby girl home, but we know the best place for at the moment is where she is, and the nurses just love her so I feel confident even when not there.

So fingers crossed that we don't have to wait to long for the perfect liver and Rani can get out of the Hospital before her 1st birthday...which atm seems very unlikely.

I can't wait to see more pics, especially of the chubby cheeks. I think of you every day - and wish that Rani has a fast road out of there and gets home sooner rather than later. Sending our love to you all.
