Spring Takes a Break

Spring 2017 showed up early, did just enough to get the trees and flowers blooming, and now decided to take a long break. We don't think that's what "spring break" is supposed to mean.

Update on baby Remington Craft 3/13/17

Quick update on Remi... Today nothing major happened. We were woke up early in the morning by nurses telling us that she may need to be started on dialysis. 

Her potassium levels were concerning, and they needed to keep that down to prevent another possible cardiac arrest.

Luckily her levels did go down today and they will do a reassessment in the morning. This is all due to her kidneys not working as well as they'd like, and there is little urine output causing her to retain fluid.

They have also lowered her epinephrine (that helps her heart squeeze) and the paralytic, so hopefully we will see her move again soon.

Today was Remi's big brother's 6th birthday and he wanted to FaceTime his baby sister to see her. He is such a sweet boy 💜

Also, last night nurses allowed Remi to wear her bling and made her an adorable elephant sticker to help keep the NG tube in place.
