Masinja is doing well with his feedings. He's up to 6ml per hour now, and is gaining some weight. He's up to 4lbs 15oz. He's resting pretty peacefully today. The doc tapped his reservoir and took 30ccs. She's worried it might be infected, so she put him on antibiotics. He's been pretty lethargic since his eye surgery, so the doc thinks he either got too much anesthesia, or that he might not be feeling well. Either way, the antibiotics should do him good. The doc also plans to start weening Masinja off the vent, as he's been doing well with his settings.
Madelinja's reservoir got tapped and the doc took 15ccs. She's having it tested again for infection. She actually injected some antibiotics directly into the reservoir to help fight off anything that might be there. The neurosurgeon will actually be looking at both of them to determine if he will remove their reservoirs or not.
Madelinja will definitely have surgery this Friday for her ostomies. The surgeon will be putting her completely back together, which means that she'll actually get to start feeding within the next week or so. It will be good, as she might actually catch up with her brother a bit.
That's all for today.
