Daily Update - 7 February 2007

Madelinja and Masinja are doing fine today. The doctor has been playing with their ventilator settings to keep them comfortable. Madelinja had another blood transfusion today, too.

Tomorrow, or Friday, the Twinjas will have reservoirs put in to drain fluid off their brains. They both have experienced hemorrhaging in their brains, which is normal for their size and circumstances, so they need the reservoir to drain the extra fluid. We'll know tomorrow when the procedures will actually happen.

Madelinja's heart murmur has possibly reappeared, but we're not sure where that will lead yet. It might not be her PDA, but another issue, so we'll have to see when she gets her next echo cardiogram.

Masinja's doing fine after his PDA surgery, so that took care of the problem for him. He should be getting his drain out on Friday, so we'll see if that's clear to do after his reservoir procedure.

That's all for now.

So glad to hear all is well with the Twinjas! I can't wait to meet them. I know it's a ways off but I just can't wait!
