Mr Boy is also still too swollen to breath on his own because of the excess pressure on his lungs due to the excess fluid and having his bladder on the inside of his body for the first time, so he is still sedated and on the breathing ventilator. We really need him to urinate more. Lately we have been obsessed with tacking his urine output, making sure the catheters are still working and not clogged, and that he is peeing off enough fluids, so Dave and I just stare at his catheters all day long and hope for lots and lots of pee.
Every day, is another huge step toward full healing, and overall, Mr Boy is doing ok. We haven't had any huge emergencies, but each day is like a roller coaster of heightened emotions as we dart around potential emergencies and frightening close-calls.
We are wanting to get to a place where we no longer have to worry about something horrible happening and can just focus on Mr Boy. Thank you for your continued prayers and messages of encouragement, we can not express how much we appreciate them!
