Day 42 - August 15, 2007

Hi all,
Today was mostly an uneventful day for the boys. The big news today was that the nurse (Melissa) decided to try Ciaran on low-flow today. He did well during a treatment he received and so they went for it. The last time he tried this he only lasted about half an hour but today he did 4 and a half hours!!! It was awesome to see his face and head and everything! Liza was able to hold Shay today for 2 hours and he did pretty good. He had a few 'spells' but those are common for him at this time. Both boys are filling out and getting big. Ciaran was still holding onto the 2kg mark and Shay starting to make progress at over 1650 grams!

Liza took some time for herself today, finally. Her friends Cassandra and Jodi took her out to the spa for a few hours in the afternoon. She looked refreshed and great. It was nice to see that she had taken some time to relax and enjoy.

More tomorrow as we wait for results of a few tests but things overall seem to be going well!

Cris, Liza, Ciaran and Shay
