frozen bm/ lost power question

So, I'm in the area affected by the blizzard and we lost power for like 36 hours. Meanwhile, I had a bunch of breastmilk in the freezer. It at the very least partially thawed if not completely. It's frozen again now but not sure it's still any good since it did start to thaw. Any thoughts?

Ice crystals or slishy can be refrozen.  Completely liquid thawed, use within 24 hours.

Haha, should've. I actually vacated my house though. First to an emergency shelter then to ds1's grandparent's house. No heat with a 7 yo and a two month old wasnt safe. Luckily, we only spent one night away from home.

Hmm, we're not completely sure how much it actually thawed, might have to err on the side of caution and get rid of it. :-(

Was the freezer shut the entire time?
