My boy can pee!

Jensen is putting out some serious urine after the wash out! We are ecstatic because this means the swelling is going down! His creatinine level went down (1.4 to 1.3), which looks good for coming off ECMO soon. Dr. Fuller has checked on him several times today and is very pleased with how well he is doing. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful surgeon!

Jensen is also moving around quite a bit because they took off of one sedatives. He moves when we talk to him and makes a pouty lip a lot :) Dr..Licht was happy to see his left side moving so well since he had right brain seizures. His EEG leads should come off tomorrow and we will finally get to see that gorgeous hair again!

Also, Jensen's official nickname is snuggle bunny. As new parents we feel like its our duty to give him a ridiculous name that will embarrass him when he's older ;) he's just so cuddly and cute you can't help but want to snuggle with him!


  1. Great news today!!! Very happy to see how well he's recovering and so glad his ECMO trials are going well. How is the small clot in his leg? Zoe had one after a cath as well in her femoral artery post intervention. Continued thoughts and prayers from Arizona.

  2. Yes, it is your duty to give him a nickname he will someday hate you for. Adi is Monkey or Cuddle Butt. Trav sometimes calls her Skid Mark...hey! That one sounds familiar! Haha! So glad he is doing better. I know progress is slow going, but it is progress. You wouldn't believe how many people ask me every day how he is doing & tell me they are praying for him, you, & Jeremy. It is overwhelming! Keep updating us with good news! I wish we could be there with you all!
