An active night

Our little bugger gave 'em a run last night. In checking Daniel's diaper, the nurse found some odd sediment and discharge. It could be just "junk" from his poorly performing kidneys, but they are looking into it further. They have stopped his feeds for now, since he hasn't produced stool. His bowels could be "sleepy" from the paralysis meds he's been on periodically. He has a fever right now, which they are working on bringing down. Not surprising with everything his body went through yesterday.

Our highlights for the night were the fact that Daniel's heart is holding strong, and they were able to clear a good amount of secretion from his lungs! He is still producing a good amount of urine, though the quality of the urine isn't where it needs to be yet. We keep hearing that things should progress now that his chest is closed. We are praying that is true.

Today, we are going to surprise Madi and show up for her end of year school performance and take her to lunch. We are so excited to see her smiling face. Friends Lisa and Sherril will be here today to sit with Daniel, so we can relax and enjoy our time with Madi. Lisa and Sherril are both bringing lots of books to read to Daniel:)
