Today's good news was the game changer within our emotions. We have been on the edge of our seats for right at seven days to the hour when Drake got really sick, desperately hoping and praying for a miracle. I mentioned earlier that we are witnessing one in real life. If you have determination and stick to your beliefs, you will understand that all things happen for a reason. You cannot control them, you can only look for support through Him.
Earlier today, we were so excited to have urine in the catheter tube. We have reached another milestone...it has reached the end of the line where it drops into the collection tube. We even had some in the diaper! We are hoping and praying for a continuation and increase in volume. Drake is extremely swollen still and the doctors said that the activity in output needs to increase before this starts to go down. Medicine wise, everything is going to stay the same except they are adding something for his thyroid...good news is the side affect is, an increased need to pee.
Kennedy is still doing good from the earlier report, growing in length and weight. 2# 6oz, 14.5" long which is 1.5" longer than when she was born. She loves kangaroo time with mommy and gets pretty mad when they take her away and put her back in the isolette.
Drake is nowhere close to being out of the woods, it is simply a stepping stone along the path toward wellness. Please keep up the faith for him and continued prayers for his kidneys.
