Day 31 – 16/4/16 – 1 month old

Happy 1 month Birthday Hannah and Ellie!

We celebrated the girls 1 month birthday with a girls day. The boys are having a sleepover, Matt is at a wedding (congratulations Dave and Nicole) and I am trying to fit in as many hugs as possible. I had normal baby hugs with Hannah for 1/2hr, almost 2hrs of kanga hugs with Ellie (almost 2hrs because she had prongs in her nose and got super cranky) and am having a break to refuel before I go back up and have kanga hugs with Hannah.

Medical news, both girls have increased their milk feeds and that’s about it….. Ellie needs to finish a course of antibiotics and continue being weened off her steroids and morphine. But is otherwise doing well, still so much happier than she was ventilated. The steroids have given her lungs enough of a boost now so they will begin to reduce them. Ellie is a little fragile still, but one month on who knew they would be doing this well.
