Drake's Race Against Time
Waking up this morning with hopes of seeing a full catheter were quickly diminished when I didn't see a drop. I am constantly by his side giving him my little pep talks to keep him strong and fighting. I am his coach in the game of life, and Annie and I are his biggest fans! There is little to update as far as his progression. Continued regimen of countless medicines, blood, and maxed out respirator settings. I had a difficult conversation with the doctor, well I listened as he explained the circumstances we are seeing first hand. His little body is being saturated with so much fluid to help drive potassium levels down and begin kidney function that it is taking a toll on his internal pressures. He said the fluids have to go somewhere. We are now up against the race of time. He is a fighter and the strongest little man in the hospital, but we need his kidneys to work quickly!!!! I am so sad right now it is painful to think, type, see!...But I refuse to give up hope and will do whatever it takes to get him better.
