Well the Docs have looked over Rani's X-rays and they can't find any they like us are assuming it is the pressure that is being placed on her overly enlarged splein. It really is heartbreaking to see the tears and hear that agonising cry and know that there is nothing that can be done to make her feel better. Thankfully she is allowed Codine to try and relieve some of the pain, but because of the pressure she won't sit up as it hurts to much which makes cuddles harder.

We are very nervous tonight as we have a meeting with the Surgeon tomorrow morning that will preform Rani's transplant. We have been told by the Transplant Co-Ordinator the ins and outs of the operation but it is always different when you hear it from the Surgeon. Well perhaps not nervous but I guess meeting the man that we are puting the fate of our child into his hands is scary and making things even more real.

Although I was shocked tonight when our Nurse said that Rani will be 1 next month. I had to stop and think and yes next month it will be her first birthday. Most days I don't even know what day it is let alone what So there is probably no way of avoiding her 1st birthday in the Hospital which is a shame...I am just hoping that she has had the transplant is well enough for a day pass.

Well here is a pic of John and the kids I took today at the Hospital.

I havent had time to read your blog for weeks but finally got to read all your news tonight...what an up and down few months you have had. Cant believe Rani is almost one, it has gone so fast! Of course I am wishing you all the best of luck with the transplant, i was also sorry to hear you have to move on top of everything else, what a drama, hope you have been able to find something. Your layouts have been sensational, I loved them all....take care!
