T +14 Kidney Improvement

I haven't been over to see Murray yet (as I have been enjoying my well deserved cup of tea), but when I spoke to the nurse this morning they said his kidney numbers were not just stable today - they were actually improved this morning (creatinine 578 and urea 31.3 down from 600 and 40 yesterday).  So improved that they took his vas cath (dialysis plumbing) out today!  They are very hopeful that this is the beginning of his kidney kicking in and starting to work on its own.

They are even starting the use the H* word in his presence!  It would be lovely to have him home - it feels like a long two weeks since he first went into hospital.  For Ashlea though I can't believe it has only been 2 weeks - she is doing so well.  Do you remember her scar from Day 1 after surgery?  Have a look at it now:

Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes - I am very hopeful we will all be home under the same roof very soon!

Hi Alison,

That is such great news about Murray's creatinine and urea levels. Will continue to pray for Murray, Ashlea and for you/your family for better days ahead.

Fantastic on both counts - that is incredible healing Miss A. So great to hear those numbers sounding like they are on the turn for M.

Yay for a cup of tea and a breather for you!
Big love

That scar looks miraculously brilliant for a major surgery scar only two weeks old. Plus, it has survived not getting hospltal germs. Great!!!
Love from Fay

Wonderful news for Murray! Let's hope this is the recovery path and that he is well on the way to coming home!
