Today is St. Patrick's Day, and we're 8 weeks old!
Masinja is up to 11ml of food every hour. He's actually off the IV food, and is just getting a saline drip to keep the line open. His ostomy is working very well, and the doc is pleased with his progress so far.
Madelinja might still have a problem with her reservoir. The doc is not sure, but there's a possibility it is infected. The bad news is that it might have to removed, and we won't know the consequences of that until it happens. The good news is that her fluid is now straw colored like her brother's, so it seems that she's clearing up in the department. They'll both have cranial ultrasounds again on Monday, so we'll see exactly what progress they've made.
Speaking of Monday, they will both get eye exams again. It looks like they both will get laser surgery to clear up their eyes, and make sure they retain their vision. Chances are they won't have as good peripheral vision when they grow up, but at least they will be able to see. We won't know about the laser surgery until Monday, so we'll keep you posted.
That's all for St. Patty's Day!
