We are praying for a BIG WET DIAPER tonight....I know that seems funny but we need our little boy to drain. His kidneys still haven't kicked in yet. The doctors put him on a steriod for a few days in hopes of getting things going. If Samuel's fluids would balance out to normal levels, we would be in better shape.
The doctors are testing the fluid coming from his abdominal tube to make sure that it isn't urine. We really really really want them to say that it isn't.
Samuel's blood pressure is currently a little better. They have dropped some of his blood pressure medicine down but they think it's only because they have given him so much fluid...and he is retaining it.
On a more light hearted note....have I mentioned that we keep seeing the number 19 a lot? Michael and I were married on the 19th of July. We started dating the 19th of April (which is also Michael's parent's anniversary.) Samuel was born on the 19th of March at 1:09 (the one and the nine in there too.) He weighed 1 pound 9 ounces. Oh and did I mention we met the family with 19 kids??? haha.
