Yesterday was a good day for the most part!Brody made the move to the NICU without any problems. The highlight of my day was getting to hold him and change his diaper! I never thought I would ever be so excited to change a poopy diaper! I didn't want to let him go...I could have sat there forever (well, if my bladder would have allowed). The doctor noticed that his blood work that shows kidney function has slowly worsened over the last three days. Just to be safe he call a pediatric nephrologist to come evaluate him. They did an ultrasound at the abdomen, and noticed that one side of one of his kidney's is very swollen. She thinks it's from all the trauma his body has been through and that his body should be able to heal on it's own. She started him on a low dose antibiotic just to be sure that there is no infection there. If it would happen to worsen, dialysis would have to be considered. Today they might take him off the vent!!! He is getting room air through the tube, and they feel his lungs are strong enough to handle it on there own. I will keep you informed as the doctors round on him today.
