OK the kids had Jeans for Genes day at school today (a gold coin donation to wear casual clothes and the money goes to research) so I decided that after picking them up from school as they were already in casual clothes we would go straight to the Hospital before my Sister came in.

Rani is still classed as stable and was pretty happy again tonight. She reminds me of a Sumo Wrestler with her chubby face. Again she has scratched her face in a different place and it wasn't clotting to well. Also it must have been in a lot of pain as everytime she knocked it she gave out the biggest heartfelt cry.

Last night she must have lost her dummy as when Mum went in this morning she had a different dummy and Mum found her original under the cords for her TPN. Well she has to have them both now. Often having one in her mouth and the other in her eye. Of course being a scrapper I always have the camera handy although still trying to get used to the DSLR.

So here is Sumo Rani with her sore nose and 2 and of course Rach her favourite Taggie :)

If two dummies makes her happy right now then 2 dummies it is!!Emmy used to love to do the same when she was a bubba, with the same type of pink plugs too! *giggle*

Give her a kiss for me ok?!

Sweet story about the dummies. Uhoh - maybe this is the start of something. We ended up with a plastic box of dummies on Rose's hospital bed. We needed about 10 in the system, she developed such a passion for them! We'd sterilize them in batches, with their plastic box, in the ward sterilizer!

The dummies seemed to be her favourite toys after a while, and were possibly quite comforting for her when it came time for her to be on a ventilator after the transplant.

She's so gorgeous. Enjoy the sumo look while it lasts - I bet all that TPN chub is very useful in her recovery after her transplant.

Sweet little Rani, I wish your wait wasn't so long!

Hi Mel!
Just dropped by from the links from Zina's and Chrissy's blogs. Your family is gorgeous. Love those photos of Rani asleep with her dummies!
I'll be praying that you get a liver for her very soon.
