Upon meeting with the doctor this morning he said, "We had more urine. What a miracle, this is nothing short of miraculous." This coming from a doctor and witnessing it first hand, the definition above explains it all. A nurse through our conversation said that she had not ever seen a baby go this long without urination, the longest she had seen was four days...Drake went seven! Thanks be.
Drake continued to meet just over minimum expectations of 1 ml of urine per hour. He is very touchy, as I would be too, where his heart rate and oxygen levels drop very low whenever they get in there to touch him or change his diaper. Mommy and I are able to caress his head to calm him down and talk to him when they do this, it really helps a lot. We rarely leave his side...we are fortunate that my parents take night duty from 12:30am to 6:00am so we can get some rest. It allows us to sleep knowing he has family watching over, coaching from my dad and singing from my mom, to help him through these tough times.
He will maintain all levels of medications for now and slowly begin to take him off of the diuretics. Since what they have been giving him for the last few days is rare and non-conventional medicine, one of the doctors referred to it as "Witches Brew." As my posts have indicated before and the definition of miraculous states, this is a miracle involving divine intervention...Four words; seven days no pee!!!
Annie is finishing up her kangaroo treatment with Kennedy right now. When they are done and she calms down from the fit she has when they take her away, they are going to put her on CPAP. This is a "First down" for her. We know that it comes with risks, as does everything at the NICU, and if she does not do well on it she will go back on ventilator.
Then Jesus said to him, Unless you see signs and miracles happen, you never will believe. John 4: 48
