There isn't much to report today. Benjamin was put on a drug yesterday to make him get rid of some fluid but now he's getting rid of too much so they are lowering the dose of one drug & stopping the other. So it looks like his kidneys are starting to work again. Today they are going to take the CRT line out:) One less line in him:) He is still on the oscillating ventilator and they have adjusted the settings again. For now he is going to stay on the oscillating ventilator but it looks like he might be switched to the conventional one in the next couple days. He is still sleeping a lot even though they have lowered his sedation. He's not very responsive right now although we sometimes notice a change in his numbers when we are talking to him or stroking him. It seems like forever since we've gotten to hold him or have him talk to us. But I'm glad he's not fighting the machinery.
