Daily Update - 19 April 2007

Well, Madelinja's surgery was postponed until 20 April. The surgeons couldn't make the time, so they had to push it back. We were hoping it would be over with today, but that's just not the case. It's supposed to take place first thing in the morning, so we'll see when it actually happens, and we'll let you know the results.

So today was even more exciting than yesterday. While Madelinja was waiting for the surgery that never happened, they had to stop feeding her. Well, she got pretty mad. At one point she was having a good fit and I had to pry her white-knuckled fingers off her breathing tube. She has quite a grip for a 4lb girl. I held her hand for a while and calmed her down, but she was still pretty upset. They started feeding her again after the surgery was postponed, and they actually changed out her breathing tube. She seemed pretty peaceful this evening, with only minor bouts of attitude. We'll see how happy she is in the morning.

Masinja had a pretty boring day. He pretty much just ate and slept. I held him for about 45 mins today, so that was pretty nice. He slept most of the time, but was awake tonight for a little while. He's eating really well right now; almost 1.5oz of breast milk every 3 hours. We're starting to use T.M.M.'s supply, so we'll see how long the deep freezer stays packed.

That's all for today.
