last rays of summer

Enjoying what seems like the final fling of summer (having missed out the vast majority of it one way and another...) . I begin to sense my horizon widening and getting a little further off (ie I can see further than 'the next feed') which is quite exciting. Victoria continues to feed well and seemed not to be in pain today until this afternoon. Last night she woke me up every 3 hours to ask for milk - I obliged of course!
The antibiotics are now dispensed with and all we have are the diuretics - which she has to continue with until we see Dr Shinebourne next. I have started the nutrivene today.
The boys who have digital cameras have to keep being brought to order because they would spend all day clicking and capturing some of the many varied faces our little bundle of wonder produces. She is enjoying playing with the koosh ball which is suspened (by an elastic band) from the 'baby-gym' (specially adapted with bits of plastic waste-pipe - thanks to Daddy) over her special seat. Of course, she prefers to be having cuddles but we are attempting to accomplish some schoolwork....
I have arranged for the health visitor to come on Wednesday for a weighing.

    Welcome home Tracy and Victoria. I know this is late but we just send you all our love and prayers. We are very thankful that Victoria is feeding well and that the light is getting brighter :)
    Well Done Philip.
    I will contact you again after my exam on Wednesday so we can arrange a visit at one of our houses.
    With much love

    It's lovely to hear that Victoria is so lively and is wanting to play and interact with everyone. She was quite sociable and alert before the op, so she must be a delight to see now!

    Love to you all,
    from the Perks
