We need big, bold prayers for Bo today. We need to see his body begin to process the fluid accumulation in his body immediately. The fluid remaining in his body is serious for his breathing and other organs like his liver and kidneys. Doctors need to see some results this morning in urine output to show that he is moving in the right direction. Escalation if not would mean turning to dialysis which has much more complexity and potential complications given his already weakened state in the transplant process. He would need surgery this morning to have a second central line placed in his chest for dialysis, which puts him at risk for bleeding and infection. There’s other complications as well, especially to his liver and kidneys at this point.
Bo is not sleeping or resting soundly since his tummy is so big. He’s taking small, quick breaths and just can’t seem to fall into a deep sleep. We are all very tired.
We will update again once we speak with his team this morning.
