Today is a big day

Our focus of concern has switched to Daniel's kidneys this morning. We were prepared for this because they saw it coming. His BUN levels have elevated and urine output has significantly decreased. Daniel's doctors had planned to insert a catheter today in the probable event that dialysis will take place.

On a good (but anxious) note, they are going to try to remove Daniel from the ECMO machine today. We are prepared that this might not be successful right away, but of course we are praying for the best here. We are told his lung X-ray has improved again.

So so so glad to read about this improvement. Daniel is one amazing little boy. Hugs and kisses to the Murphys. 3Ds
