More Bad News

Things were going reasonably well until today. Miracle's bladder infection has turned into something much more serious. Her kidneys seem to be shutting down. She has lost her appetite, I have not seen her urinate at all today and her belly looks bloated.

She isn't running a fever and is still getting up and walking around some but is very shaky on her feet now. I don't know what tonight will hold, I will still get up to attempt to feed her but I don't think that I will force feed her at this point. If she is still not eating at 3:00 AM, I may try to force some pedialyte down her.

I am sorry that I have not been blogging regularly but Miracle has been my focus for 13 days now. I keep hoping that I can post something more positive but every time I am encouraged, I get knocked off of my feet again.

I have been doing a lot of research on twins and have found out that first 72 hours is the most critical and that most problems show up within the first 10 days, but we are already past that deadline and something new and serious has come up, so I can't say I am very happy tonight.
