Overall, Abby had a good day today - but unfortunately the surgeons were not able to close her skin as we were all hoping for, she is still too puffy. Even though this is a minor set-back she does not have any new infections and she's hanging in there -blood pressure is up, she is tolerating breast milk and her pulse is good. The surgeons did change the IV line from her thigh to her neck - changing the IV line reduces the risk of infection. We would really like her kidneys to pick up -which will help take the fluids off along with the dialysis. Not sure when they will attempt to close the chest/skin again, could be this weekend or next week. She was even more puffier after the procedure so we will continue to take it day by day. Thanks so much for the prayers and love.
