Updates on Victoria Lily Joy van den Broek, born 120705.

Monday afternoon

I'm just back from the hospital. Victoria has been checked out and does not have fluid on her lungs for which we thank God. Her oxygen saturation levels are virtually unchanged which is also good, however she has lost too much weight (according to the hospital's charts ) so she has been kept in . Tracy and Vactoria have a room to themselves so Tracy will try and catch up on sleep. She will be seeing a breastfeeding advisor and a nutritionist hopefully today.

I (Ron) am doing the posts on this blogspot as Tracy is not up to computing. What I have typed over the past two days is more than I've done in the last year or more, so please forgive spelling and grammer mistakes. It also takes me awhile to do this as I'm not into this kind of communication with one finger,so if what I am doing is of any help please let me know and i will continue I have heard that doing this kind of thing is supposed to be some kind of therapy for the mind,-I guess that it will help my control of a mouse (for correcting the mistakes) and strengthen the end on the finger which does the typing.

    Glad to hear her lungs were ok; and I hope they both get some rest. Love and prayers
