On Tuesday, he was extubated and is no longer on the ventilator (again). His bowels started moving in a big way, and he is much more comfortable (again).

He spent most of Wednesday awake, and continued to recover. Mom even got to hold him (again).
Now, we continue to wait for Dubya to recover fully. We are hopeful that it happens soon, but it could take days or weeks to get back into working order. In the meantime, Theo continues to receive a few hours of dialysis, and at this point the plan is to move him out of the ICU by Friday.
Our prayer is that we can bring home a boy who has a beautiful, new, functional kidney.
We continue to be amazed by the prayers and support we have received. As of now, Cool Aunt Whit is in 1st place(!) for the SF Kidney Walk. Your generosity has left us speechless. If you're interested in supporting her cause, you can find details at the link here.
We look forward to some smiles from Theo tomorrow, and many more to come. This journey has been breathtaking, painful, joyful, and overwhelming at times. We're thankful for God's provision, and for the opportunity to be a part of something we never expected to experience.
