2 more days!!!!

but whose

I am still in shock that it has been a year since I had Rani, even with all the dramas that have gone on in her short little life, it still doesn't feel like a year.

On this day a year ago I had just found out that I was going to be induced in 2

Well Miss Rani wasn't in much better of a mood today. Thanks to the Lasix she had dropped 120grams, but her belly was still swollen to 59cm, so they finally gave her some Codine so she could get some relief. That is one of the most frustrating parts of liver disease, she can't really have meds like Panadol to relieve pain as it really mucks around with the liver, but fortunately she is occasionally allowed Codine and she makes me laugh so much when she gets it, as she looks high as a

They are going to check her bloods from today and probably give her a blood transfusion tomorrow and more Lasix to try and get her belly down. It has just got to be so uncomfortable for her...the poor girl screams in pain when you change her nappy. So I guess there will be no sitting up and opening presents on Friday.

I am going to bring her rocker into the Hospital on Friday as it is adjustable and she may be able to semi sit up to open her presents. It will be better than lying on her back...i guess anything is better than what she does all day.

Rani loves to suck on the frozen dummy, it must feel great in her mouth. As she in Nil via Mouht her mouht gets so dry and she loves to suck on a wet face washer, so I am guessing the cold dummy feels fantastic.

Well I guess not a lot more to add...I am making some cup cakes tomorrow to take in on Friday and we are secretly hoping that she will get the call on Friday night. Or probably because we are arranging things for Friday it will happen Thursday night...not that that would really break our

Oh.. I never thought to do something like that with dummies. Good on the nurse for thinking like that. I'm sure its not really a bad habit for Rani, just a pleasure for her.

Enjoy her 1st birthday.. I'll be thinking of you.
