Daily Update - 26 February 2007

Masinja tried to be Harry Houdiaper again today. T.M.M. caught him with one of the flaps undone, and getting ready to undo the other. If he's this smart already, we're in some real trouble later on down the road. He had a good day today, and spent most of it resting peacefully. He opened his eyes for a while tonight, and got out of line a few times, but he's been a good boy overall.

I got to hold Madelinja, and change her diaper and linens again today. She's so tiny! She is up to 2lbs 4ozs now, so she's actually starting to gain a little more weight. She still has her ostomies and they're working like they're supposed to, so that's good. Masinja is 2lbs 12ozs, just in case I forget to type it later.

We still don't have a firm date on Masinja's surgery. The doc and surgeon are still debating on what's going to happen with that. I hope they make a decision soon, because I'd like it to be resolved so we can start feeding them both.

Madelinja's breathing tube was making funny noises tonight, but it was because she's starting to outgrow the size tube she currently has. The tube was making little squeaking sounds when she was breathing out, but her vitals looked fine, so we'll see if the doc re-intubates her tomorrow.

Well, that's all that I can remember for now.
