Day 12

busy busy day yesterday. Were off ecmo! He was quite a stinker though yesterday afternoon, his blood pressure and sats dropped very low so they had to max him out on epinephrine to get him to stabalize and he did. He isn't peeing all that great so send Alex potty vibes! He's so swelled up his weight this morning was a whopping 10 lbs 2 oz!!!! More than double his actual weight in fluids. He NEEDS to pee.

This morning he's doing better. Being a little naughty with his blood pressure but his sats look good. This first 24-48 hours off ecmo are rough on him. His heart is, for the first time ever, working pretty much like it should and that's a big adjustment on him. Keep the prayers coming!
