Daily Update - 21 February 2007

Actually saw the surgeon today. He's not in a hurry to do surgery on either of the Twinjas right away. He wants them to get bigger first, but that's a hard path with their only nutrition being IV fluids. We'll have to see how it plays out, and see how stable they remain. He needs to put Madelinja back together, and possibly fix Masinja's perforation.

They tried to put Masinja back on the original ventilator, but he didn't like it very much. He was very uncomfortable. He will have to go back on the original ventilator before they can ween him off, so this might become interesting.

On the ventilator note, the nurses changed out both of the Twinja's breathing tubes, and took a picture of Masinja's face for us. I'll be scanning it in and putting it up on the photobucket in the next day or two, so keep an eye out.

Lastly, Madelinja is still having some attitude issues. She's still adjusting from the brain hemorrhage, and the changes of having the extra fluid drained. It usually causes issues with their vitals, but for the most part, she's doing ok. She has her moments, which usually gives us moments.

Well, that's all for today.
