Daily Update - 9 February 2007

The Twinjas had their brain drains installed today. Both procedures went very smoothly. They were both resting peacefully when we visited late this evening.

Madelinja's heart murmur is still present. She had an echo cardiogram done, but we're not sure if we'll need to do her PDA procedure sooner or later. Hopefully we won't have to do it at all.

Masinja might be on the verge of abdominal surgery. His little tummy isn't quite clearing up the way the doctors would like it to. It remains to be seen what will happen with this, as the surgeon was planning on removing his stomach drain on Monday.

Last, but not least, both of the Twinjas are having possible lung issues due to being on the ventilator. They are adjusting the settings in hopes of avoiding any problems, but there are no guarantees.

It's been a pretty busy day, so I'll cut it short here. Please keep praying that we're near the end of the road for their surgeries. It's an awful lot to ask of their little bodies. They're fighters, but we have to watch out for infection, as that would be a huge setback for them.

Peace,
T.M.

TM - thanks for the daily updates. I hope you and Cheri are finding enough time to get some rest for yourselves. I'm praying for the Twinjas every night, and I'm hopeful as you are that the surgeries are almost over. They sound like they are both fighters, and Mason being spoiled by the nurses is a great story. Is there anything I can do for you at his point? I'll be here another 2 weeks or so and then I'll be heading home, finally. Take care, JMR
