Weighed again

Moving on from the last post (a couple of hours ago) the midwife came back and brought the scales with her. Victoria has put on 100 grams since last time she was weighed and is now above her birth weight at 4.14kg. We are all pleased about that.

Hopefully it will not be necessary to admit her back into hospital if the trend continues.

    Good news about the weight gain. We continue to pray for you all daily. We followed the link to find out what Philip has been up to in Borneo.It sounds exciting, but rather scary. I wouldn't like the rats. He'll have some stories to tell when he returns!
    Love from Sue Perks and family

    Try to insist that they use the SAME set of scales every time, if you don't really believe she is losing weight as fast as they say.

    What treatment are the offering her in hospital that you can't give at home? LOL, don't mean to sound sceptical!

    And take it easy on that trampoline : 0 )

    Much Love

    I deleted him. Lucy told me that she deleted some opportunistic advertiser on an earlier entry on the blog. I guess you can search for something particular and then slap your ad. on all those blogs through which you might find your ad. will bring in some trade.
    As far as the hospital is concerned, well a naso-gastric tube is what they have in mind. The prospect scares me for two reasons 1) she might need it long term so i would need to learn how to do it and 2) it could mean a longer than wanted (like more than 2 hours!) stay in the hospital. It is, humanly speaking, inevitable though.
