Well, what can I say that Popeye and Grandma Suemom haven't said already. Not much really changed today. We do have a new PICU doctor and the cardiologist and Nephrologist are back from vacation. So we are now trying some new "techniques". Most are just messing with the levels of medicines Remi is already getting. If these techniques do not work we may need to get dialysis in Cincy. We did have a problem this morning. Remi is getting so swollen that her IV's are almost like being forced out of her body. She used to have 2 central IV lines and 1 artery line. We lost the 1 art line. They say it served its purpose and was no longer needed. I think they just say that when things don't go as planned.
I can't even tell each and every one of you how much you all mean to us. What all of you are doing is above and beyond any expectations. I love reading everybody's comments. It takes our minds away from our troubles, even if it's just for a second. It's amazing how far and wide that this blog has followers. Not just Ohio and Michigan but Florida, California, Washington, Texas, and many more. Again, I am so proud to be Remi's daddy. Think of it this way, if you helped raise me, teach me, coached me, cut my hair, or are a family member or friend (whether you want to admit it or not) you can be rest assured I have passed that on to Remi. Or as much as I could in 3 weeks. With that said, you can all be proud.
Keep up the thoughts and prayers. They do not fall on deaf ears. By the way, the above picture is Remi in our front window when we tried to clear up her jaundice with good old home remedy sunlight.
Lastly, I think a couple lines from the Plain White T's song "Hey there Delilah" are so true for Remi. They are.....Delilah(Remi) I can promise you that by the time we get through, the world will never ever be the same. And, your to blame.
