Sunday, April 1

Well, the honeymoon period is over. Benjamin is doing well. He is getting fed now and is tolerating it. They hope to have him on full feeds by tonight. For the first time in his life, he is doing better than his brother.

Kyle is slightly more unstable. He is not getting fed as his stomach is a bit bloated. They took a chest x-ray and are hoping to find out why his stomach is bloated. It could be that it takes a while for his plumbing to get back to normal after surgery. They just want to make sure it's nothing bigger than that.

They are talking about transferring them back to Royal Columbian today. It depends on the results from Kyle's x-ray and on his condition. It also depends on whether there's space at Royal Columbian.
