Popped downstairs. They said Eden's labs looked good, they will redraw at 11pm. The last hour she peed 12ml. So we hope things will increase over night. I am headed back to the RMH. Good Night
Sorry it has been so long in-between post. Especially those of you who were pressing refresh every 20 minutes all day and got nothing new will now.
Eden is doing better she was previously peeing around 5ml and hour this morning, by 4pm it picked up to 10ml, and when I went up before heading to dinner she was peeing around 14ml. So it looks like her kidneys are remembering what they are supposed to do. She opens her eyes on and off but they don't stay open for too long. She got visits from Grandparents and one of her uncles today. Also got flowers from some great-aunts and a bear. Her brothers and other grandma sent a card up to which included a picture of a triceratops. I think they might be watching too much Dinosaur Train at home. She is resting well, the only thing she dislikes is the nystaton medication that has to be given orally.
Erica has been up and about more. She walked up and back to go visit Eden today, has had no trouble getting up to go to the bathroom. they are pumping her so full of liquids you would think she was a race horse. (I'll probably be in trouble for that) She sat in the chair in the room for several hours today, it was a nice break from sitting/laying in the bed. Only problem today was when going to the restroom once today her IV was caught under the pole and came out. No bleeding but we had to call the IV team to put in a new IV. Thankfully they were able to put it in her hand. David on of the Techs joked if the previous one came out he was sure that he could find a spot on her scalp. Erica also got a card from the boys including some funny looking people. I will post some pics, after checking on Eden real quick.
Good morning to all of you that read and don't write comments, we love you anyways.
Everyone is doing good. I got to the hospital by 8AM this morning so I could catch the doctors while they were doing their rounds. Ultrasound came up early for Eden this morning, so they were there when the doctors were. The ultrasound looked clear so no problems there. Just small hurdles now, all the big ones are gone. doesn't look like they will have to do surgery again at all. Just one day we will get that belly button fixed, for now it helps I guess give everything a little more room. Our only concern right now is for Eden's kidneys to wake up do their job, so they have taken off the diuretics today, and the prograff to give the system a break and hopefully that will help her loose some of the fluid that has built up. They will also limit the fluid intake, and start her IV nutrition (TPN).
Erica is in good spirits, pain is under control. We will try to get up some more. Been up once already, maybe go for a little walk, and then take a wheelchair up to go see Eden. Still gets a bit nauseous getting up too much, but the bed is starting to get old too she says.
