Although Jack continues to pee, the swelling is sticking around. He is working really hard to get better and we love him more each day. He has had to withstand incessant suctioning of his little nose all day and has been such a champ. We can't imagine how uncomfortable he must feel sometimes. It is incredible that he is usually able to calm himself down when he gets angry and most of the time do it without the help of medication. The nurses are so good to him even though certain activities like this make him really upset. Jack continues to receive among other medicines, two different diuretics and hydrocortisone to help his kidneys. The numbers that are used to measure kidney function usually lag behind the changes that occur, however the numbers have started to head in the right direction after his struggles the last couple of weeks for which we are relieved. Hopefully he is busy storing his energy for what lays ahead of him. We are so thankful to all of you for the prayers being offered on our behalf.
