Pee Pee Please...

Gavin is officially in Acute Kidney Failure with his kidneys working at about 30%. This is all thanks to our friend Ampho who has helped us but also causes so much harm. We have been working hard all night to correct all the major electrolyte imbalances and we still have some ways to go. The really bad part about all this is that Gavin's one remaining luman of his central line will not give us blood so he has had to endure so many sticks throughout the night. What a way to wake up!

We are waiting to hear on an OR time. We need this line out ASAP, as once the fungus is gone it will help him to help us balance his Numbers out. His gastric output also hit an all time high yesterday, which doesn't help the dehydration we are fighting.

Please pray for some pee. It has now been 24 hours and we have gotten 2cc's out. I know it will come eventually but it makes us all nervous waiting for some sign of good kidney function.

God of mercy, grant them favor and get Gavin into an OR and cause his body to function as You created it to function...eliminating and filtering properly. Thank You for Your presence, help Karen rest in you. Make a way God, in Jesus name, AMEN

I have prayed for many things in my life but I think this is the first time I've ever prayed for pee. ;-). First time for everything.

Here's hoping that you get the line out quickly and that your little man has to pee soon!

Lots of prayers and tight hugs.
