Tears of joy this morning as we walked into ICU. Daniel fared well through the night.
He is outputting more urine. They were able to lessen some of his medications. They weaned him a bit more from the ECMO machine and his heart is holding strong with the rest it's being given. We are told that the X-ray of his lungs is still pretty cloudy, BUT it does look slightly better than yesterday. He is still paralyzed and on full sedation for his safety, but we are told he can feel our touch, so today we will try to spend more time in the room with him since he is more stable. We also brought his musical seahorse to be with him last night, and his nurse was kind enough to put it on for him throughout the night. We figured that would soothe him, since he was used to it from home. The medical staff looks to be breathing a little easier today when they visit Daniel. Again, we know this will be a long haul, but sweet Jesus it is a relief to receive good news. Once we meet with his surgeon today, I will try to post again with today's obstacles and plan of action.
Your prayers are working. We are forever indebted.
