Daniel held his own off the ECMO machine, but given his low white counts and raise of lactic acid in his blood, they decided to return him to ECMO after about an hour. They will work on figuring out why these issues are occurring. They will try again tomorrow with removing him from the machine. His lungs are at the bottom of the priority list now. His kidneys are still being looked at, so they will return to dialysis. We stand strong for Daniel. We know you are praying hard.
Oh, and I should mention that thanks to a dear friend, Daniel has a beautiful statue of the Blessed Mother in his room looking down on him. We know this will bring him comfort.
