Hudson Update

Hudson had his monthly renal appointment today. We got there bright and early at 8am for a liver ultrasound. It was a routine ultrasound just to check for any growths that might/could occur on the liver. Thankfully everything looked great! They'll do another liver ultrasound when things start moving as we near transplant. Then off to labs.....our favorite phlebotomist was able to get labs on only one poke. Hooray!

Hudson's 8th Surgery

Hudson had a great night last night and has been sleeping a lot today. He is holding his feeds down and is staying comfortable with tylenol every 4 hours. I'm so glad he is resting well today. The plan is for him to do 12 hours of dialysis tonight at a low fill volume (180 ml). If all goes smooth on dialysis we can be discharged tomorrow. We will have to work our way back up to 290mL fill volumes at 9 hours of dialysis over the next week.
