T +5 Midday

Dammit.

Murray is still intubated and on the ventilator. Apparently his chest Xray looked better again today so that is good.

The bad news is that his remaining kidney is still not working well. It is making urine but today his creatinine is 630 and his urea 27.5. They are planning on dialyzing him this afternoon.

Ashlea is doing well. Her creatinine is 28 and urea 5.6. She is struggling with her feeds and has had a lot of nausea and gagging as well as some pain so we are still managing that. Her catheter is coming out today but the central line will stay in a bit longer until we get her feeding sorted (feeding always takes ages to sort out with her).

I am sorry to hear that you haven't had better news with Murray. We will continue to pray.

Hang in there Alison. You will all get through this. A lot of ppl love you and are praying for your family. As always of late, your family is at the top of my thoughts every waking moment. Sending lots of strength your way xx

ugh. I just wanted to you catch a break with Murray (and for him to catch one too). Sorry to hear that kidney isn't doing what they want. Could the kidney failing (for whatever reason) have caused the collapse and not the other way round? Seems like it is determined to not play the game at the moment - hope some dialysis 'peps' it up a bit and he can mend a little bit more.
Big cyber hugs coming your way - and big love.

I just can't believe what is happening :( I just pray Murray's kidney will function properly soon. Hope dialysis goes as well as it can.
Really feel for you, stay strong and know we are thinking of you all x

I've been thinking of you guys a lot - and sending all my positive thoughts your way. Btw, feeding always takes ages with Cici too after any procedure whatsoever. Hoping that things trend better quickly!

Murray is my hero! What a fantastic dad, I'm praying for him so hard! Look at how great his daughters numbers are now! Now we just need to get him better so he can see his baby!
