Donate Blood & Babies update

Things are stable in baby land. I'd better watch what I say - the last time I said that we took a crazy ride.

Baby James is peeing like a racehorse, and yesterday he was down to 953 grams. He's the incredible shrinking baby. I'm sure he's going to do actual growing at some point, but we couldn't be happier about the peeing and weight loss. He's off all blood pressure meds and impressing the doctors with his blood gases.

Baby Maisie is recovering well from her surgery and starting feeds again. She'll be a happy camper.

***
One thing we are asking for help with is blood donations. PSL has its own blood bank and our kids have both received blood during their stay (James especially). There is a huge demand for donations and we would be very grateful if you would consider donating. If you know your blood type, you can donate for Maisie and James. If we cannot or do not use it, it will go to another patient in need in the NICU.

James and Maisie are O- and B+.
