Signs of Spring

Melting snow. Slightly warmer days. Crocuses (not that we have those yet). More importantly, and more accurate than the groundhog: Pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training today. We'll have to get a radio for Blaise's room and start explaining why one might bunt.

In other news, Blaise has officially started on Omegaven and we are hopeful that this will improve the state of her liver or at least prevent any further damage. She continues to gain weight (except on very fussy days) and is approaching the 5 pound mark. We're also getting longer stretches of awake and calm time and she's starting to protest more when people have to fuss with her, what one of the nurses called "appropriate crying." I'd be mad about someone waking me up to poke at my belly too.

Wow that is great to hear. Our daughter Ellie got on omegaven at exactly the same age with a very similar diagnosis as Blaise. We will be watching the calendar and hoping that her liver cooperates and her numbers come down soon.
