"Beautiful"

Praise the Lord for those sweet words coming out of our night nurse's mouth! Daniel had a "beautiful night". The plasma exchange seems to be working. He is outputting a lot of urine since the treatment, and hopefully, the quality of the urine will be improved. Onward to lung function. The secretions in his chest are lessening. The next goal will be to get him off the oscillating ventilator. They had increased his support in the last few days with the big changes like closing his chest. Now that he's more stable, they will begin slowly weaning him again to make sure his lungs can handle it. We are also told that time is needed for Daniel's blood pressures to stabilize. We have all the time in the world to wait for our precious boy's body to heal:-)
