Wednesday September 2

I have to write the day because the days are starting to blur together. Through the course of the night they were able to bring the dialysis machine up to 140 which we were very happy with. I guess I can sum it up quickly this way: he had to get a lot of fluid due to his condition and the combination of all those fluids and medications start forming crystals and clog his kidney plumbing. After a quick team huddle, the doctors were confident with his vitals and they have decided to bring that machine up to 200 and we can start moving the excess fluid off faster. So that means, less puffy, more pee. I wonder if I can find a “Less Puffy! More Pee!” tshirt in the hospital gift shop?

So the number on the respirator is down to 50 which is great. When it gets to 40 they can start backing off of the ECMO machine. However, those numbers are a bit of a roller coaster. So hang with us. We are looking at the bigger overall picture. And my reference to Alex Rose in the last post is interesting. Very little people know that Alex Rose is indeed Axel Rose’s little brother and that he is the one who wrote the song “Patience”. There was a huge falling out between the two. Rumor is it had something to do with not rinsing Spaghetti O’s out before putting the dirty bowl in the dishwasher and they never spoke again. Or it could have just been my computer auto correcting. I forget. Have you heard the story about Nick Jagger?

I will try to post later tonight. But until then, Less Puffy! More Pee!

Thumbs Up!

    Dear Michelle and Trey. Can’t stop thinking about all of you and Tyler. What a terrible accident. You have so many people keeping you in their prayers. Try to keep some humor.

    Michelle, much to Jon and Schuyler’s dismay, T and I found a Monster Ballads-esque station on the radio for the drive to Bald Head. I don’t mean to brag, but we kinda killed it for about 100 miles and “Patience” was our best song. #LoveHimToPieces #LoveYouLikeASister #TeamTyler
