Holi Day


     It's Holi day, where everyone throws colorful dyes and water at you. My partner got hit by water with red coloring as we left Eden Hospital, but I got home unscathed. Our driver, Rahul, got hit as well as he waited for us outside Eden Hospital. It was nice to see how everyone is having fun with colorful dye and water. It reminds me of a similar day in Southeast Asia called "San Juan" where people throw water to get everyone wet.
    The twins are doing fine. I fed our little girl today, and my partner fed our little boy. It was an amazing feeling seeing them yesterday, and then feeding them today. They are still very tiny and fragile.
    Our boy won't be ready to leave NICU until maybe this Saturday. Our girl, on the other hand, could leave by Thursday, but first, we need to buy pre-NAN formula before we could take her home. In our hunt to get a preemie formula, we basically wasted most of our day yesterday trying to look for a store that sells pre-NAN. We went to Citywalk and DLF, and most shops we ended up going to only sold regular formula. Anyway, the nurse today told us to go to a pharmacy as they will likely have the pre-NAN formula there. We'll have to buy it tomorrow when the shops open. Ugh!
    Sleepless nights, here we come! Other challenges ahead, bring it on! :)

  4. They're beautiful...We bought a lot of PreNAN for our preemies. It's not easy to find (I searched all over). I found one pharmacy that had it. It's in the Kailish Colony Market. They will deliver it to your apartment for you without charge when you need more. We ended up buying about 12 cans (took some home as well). I can't find the name of the Pharmacy, but there is only a few on that street. It's worth finding the place.
    Congratulations, & best of luck! Hugs x4!

  7. Congratulations they look beautiful. We bought pre-nan formula from the pharmacy across the road from Eden hospital back in Jan this year(same price as everywhere else) and bought more from Max hospital next to the Svelte when we ran out. Goodluck with your bubs!

    1. Thanks! We finally got some from a "mom & pop" chemist near R block. For some reason, the major pharmacies were closed 26 & 27 March. We'll check out the M block once we used up the 6 tins we got. Cheers!
