Well, baby Brandon came through the surgery to close his PDA with flying colors.  No, not personal data assistant.  It's an artery that delivers blood to all the organs, but cirumnavigates the lungs while the baby is still in the womb.  After birth, the artery closes naturally as the lungs are now in use.  In premies, surgery is sometimes needed to close the vein.  Baby Brianna's closed up with a little help from some drug.  X-rays also showed that he has or had bleeding in his brain.  Doctors are not sure what caused it, but they believe that the blood will reabsorb in his body.  They also stated that down the road he may have to undergo therapy for his motor skills.  We knew this was a possibility, but that doesn't make hearing it any easier.   

Hubbie and I are in the middle of or done with...I don't know- another stupid fight over something relatively small, but got escalated....Gah!  I'm going to watch some anime now and block out a world where there is yelling.
