19 Days

I can't believe that in 19 days my little baby will be 1 year old. It is sad that she will definately be spending it in Hospital and fingers crossed that before it she gets a liver and is feeling alright to open some presents.

Well the kids and I had a pretty productive day of packing. Finally one thing has gone our way and we are having a hard rubbish collection next week so we can throw out a heap of stuff that we were going to have to get a skip for...so that should save us some money. We are pretty much getting rid of everything in Josh's bedroom as he is almost 10 and tells us that his bedroom is to babyish and that he shouldn't be sleeping in a racing car bed anymore...lol. So just before we move out of Mum and Dad's we will buy him a new bed and furniture as they will be sleeping in my sisters beds at Mum and Dad's. Although Teagan doesn't miss out, she scored a beautiful wooden tallboy that I bought of my sister when she moved to London...so she is happy as it is already in her room at Mum and Dad's...lol

So we went late to the Hospital this afternoon. John took the kids home at 6.30 and I stayed until Rani settled. Well she fell asleep briefly but I thought I would stay for her 8.00pm meds as she sometimes throws them up we feel more comfortable giving them to her slowly and then being there just in case she does bring them up. Not that the Nurses don't do a fantastic job...but hey we are there anyway. So she woke at 7.45pm and decided it was play time until 9.30pm when she finally decided to fall asleep - so I made my escape.

Rani loves her own reflection, photos etc and I took photos of her latest game. She has a large fish mirror in her cot and instead of facing you to look at you she rolls on her side and watches you through the mirror, every know and then turning to make sure you are really there...she thinks it is the funniest thing ever...lol Here is a pic.

Again Rani is gaining to much weight to quickly. Jumping from 9.4kg yesterday to 9.6kg today. So she is having extra Lasix to try and get rid of the excess fluid, so will find out tomorrow if it has helped.

Thank you everyone that has left comments here and on their blogs wishing our little Rani the best, it is truly appreciated that there are that many people out there that care so much and have never met our little Princess Rani. :) THANK YOU!!! :)

Lastely a pic of Rani and Teagan, they were having a lovely conversation :)

The most exquisite aspect of the photo of Teagan with Rani is Rani's tiny hand on Teagan's sleeve.

Look at your two sweet girls playing with one another, Rani looks like she just adores her big sister holding on to her like that. Awww, so cute!

I pray it'll be any day now you tell me the transplant is happening, I keep hoping that today is THE day!
Hugs sweetie!
Love Chrissy xx

Mel, you know how much we all care for you and your Princess. LOL to Josh's comments - I'm waiting for Samuel to complain too. He is almost 10 and still in his racing car bed :)
