Looking good

As promised, here is another update on our Elliott.

He is looking better and better as they pull more fluid off of him via peritoneal dialysis (pd). They may decide to dc the pd tomorrow, depending on his creatinine levels and how much more fluid is pulled off tonight. His creatinine level has been dropping every day from 0.9 to 0.84 to 0.67 over the past three days. This indicates that his kidneys are waking up from the hit they took from bypass.

Did I mention that he's been suckling in his sleep?! He remembers and is dreaming of a yummy meal of mommy's milk!
