Well when I spoke to Mum this morning Rani is 7.01kg. Woohoo!!!

Unfortunately she is not well. Her eyes are gunked up (yep technical term) they are all swollen and every morning they are sealed shut. She is developing a full on cold...they took a swab of her eye but there is no major infection and today they took some snot samples to see if it is a viral infection...which is what they think it is. Plus she has diarehea again so they are weighing her every 8 hours to make sure she isn't dropping to much fluid.

Yesterday was my all day shift as Mum has Wednesday off. She took both Josh and Teagan to see Cars, so they were happy. Miss Rani wasn't well and slept pretty much all day...she was awake briefly for maybe 30 minutes at times and most of the time she was grizzly. She finally had her X-ray where she had to swallow some special liquid (can't remember the name). She was pretty good for it and swallowed well and laid still considering I was holding her arms and 2 other nurses were holding her I guess we will wait and see what the results of that will be.

So keep your fingers crossed that this bug doesn't last because in her state if the perfect liver comes up they probably won't give it to her as after the operation she is imuno-supressed(sp?) and her body wouldn't be able to fight the bug...grrr

I'm so glad that she is stacking on the weight. As for that nasty cold, I hope it clears up really quick. Wishing for a miracle for you and thinking of you all each and every day Mel....
