A good day all round.
Ashlea has been comfortable all day even though the epidural has been removed. She has done well on oral feeds (and by that I mean PEG) rather than IV, although this evening she has been gagging a bit. Establishing feeds is always tricky with her. On the agenda tomorrow is the removal of her central line and urinary catheter. Hopefully she will be able to progress to full feeds but it usually takes awhile with her.
Murray has been very stable. His kidney ultrasound showed no damage to his kidney and his creatinine this evening was very similar to this morning. We are hoping it has stabilised and will now start to decrease. Hopefully he will be extubated tomorrow (have his breathing tube removed). I am sure he will be very happy about that as he is less sedated now and tries to pull it out himself - as a result they have had to restrain him.
I won't updae until after I have been over to see him tomorrow but hopefully when I do I will be able to tell you he is breathing on his own.
