Daily Update - 22 April 2007

Today started out well... Madelinja had an ok night and was making progress. Her oscillator settings were actually lower this morning, and her saturation was up. Then she relapsed this evening. Every time they suction her, they get a lot of white, mucous junk out of her lungs. They've also had to sedate her, so she can't move and fight the oscillator. She's not having a good time right now, so we're praying that she keeps fighting, and gets better soon.

Masinja was also doing well this morning. I changed his diaper and took his temp. His ostomy bag leaked, so he had nice green sludge on his stomach. I cleaned him up, and the nurse gave him a new bag. He was pretty happy, and sucked on his pacifier a lot. Well, tonight he decided that his sister wasn't about to outdo him, and he had a seizure. It wasn't as bad as the other day, but we don't know what's causing them, so they don't know what to do to treat them. He's still doing well with his feedings and maintaining his temp, so he's moving in the right direction to move into a crib, but the seizures might keep him from getting there for now. We hope they can figure out what's wrong, and can do something about it. I guess we'll see.

That's all for today.
