We were sent a message from a friend last night.
God makes a promise.
Faith believes it.
Hope anticipates it.
Patience quietly awaits it.
These four short sentences seem to completely summarize our entire experience thus far, here at the NICU.
There is still no urine output, but the fight Drake is continuing to demonstrate is absolutely remarkable. We met with the doctor this morning and it shows that he has impacted them as well. The doctor said she was driving in this morning and thinking about us, putting all her concentration and thought into what else we can do. She said she had another trick up her sleeve, it is kind of "Old School." She didn't even have it out of her mouth and we were on board. She ordered another diuretic that is used to reduce the swelling and fluid retention caused by various medical problems. It causes the kidneys to get rid of unneeded water and salt from the body into the urine.
Let's do this Drake...Friday the 13th is a LUCKY day!!!!
Kennedy and mommy are doing another kangaroo treatment...it looks like they will have a date at 11:30 every day to do this. I'm pretty sure neither of them will be late for this...Kennedy and mommy absolutely love this. A sense of calmness completely takes over both of them.
Picture: Kennedy holding my wedding ring. (I think I spent 5 minutes scrubbing it with sterile wipes, I am now a father you know,)
