An update on the twins

Things have been wild around here since Grayson has come home.

We sold our house in just 10 days and we have to be out by tomorrow. My mom and I packed all last week and this week and Tuesday the movers came and moved all of our stuff to storage.

Kaitlyn is scheduled for surgery tomorrow for her ostomy takedown , Sept 22 - the same day we close on the sale of the house. I will be at the hospital and DH will be at the lawyer's office.

Another thing that has happened is that I received a call on the 17th that Kaitlyn has a broken femur. It is not just fractured, it is broken in two. She is wearing a splint right now due to her ostomy bag they were unable to put a cast on it. They are planning to reset it tomorrow during the surgery for her ostomy takedown.

Other than all that, things are better. Kaitlyn now weighs 5 lbs 3.5 oz and she is back at Children's Hospital. One week ago Grayson weighed 6 lbs 10 oz and I bet he is over seven pounds now. I will try to post pictures soon.

Kaitlyn's 2nd emergency surgery

Had a scare with Kaitlyn today.

The hopsital called and they were rushing her to emergency surgery. She was having a crying fit when the doctor was working with her leg, trying to resplint it. Somehow she manage to push put 6 inches of her intestine through her ostomy. The surgeon had to cut her open and get the intestine back in there. Everything is still a go for her ostomy takedown on the 22nd.

She is doing fine, however they are giving her a paralytic medication that causes her to be paralyzed so that she cannot do any more damage to herslef. They are also sedating her which means she is pratically in a drug-induced coma.

Grayson had to have a renal ultrasound and a VCUG today at Children's Hospital.

The ultrasound was ok, but the VCUG was awful. He screamed so hard for so long that he stopped breathing. It was scary. He is fine now though.

He does have kidney reflux and will be on a low dose of antibiotics to keep him from getting UTI's.
