Still a Swollen Boy

I haven't updated this on Nicholas the past few days because there haven't really been any changes. He is still swollen but continues to have urine output. He has been weaned from a rate of 20 to 9 on his Dopamine for his blood pressure. Dr. Amarnath said she wants to keep him on the oscillator until he gets rid of all the excess fluid. So hopefully some time this week he will be back on the regular ventilator. She said they will probably try feeds again this week once he is off the oscillator. His stomach has been a little distended but the x-rays look good. Dr. Amarnath said that the air in his intestines is moving along like they want it to. Dr. Glasser removed his stitches and his tummy looks good.
