Started the morning off with Ryman having 4ml of formula (I’m guessing an hour) and the dialysis working at 40%. We are ending the day with her taking 10 ml of formula and completely off the dialysis. This seems like great progress. We are hoping and praying that everything goes well over night and that we can stop the ecmo tomorrow at some point. All of this could change very fast with 1 bad lab which are being run every 2 hours. She’s fighting through the meds and keeps trying to open her eyes every time she hears our voices which gives us great hope.
GREAT news just in is her 6pm labs for ammonia levels are at 29. This is great since dialysis was stopped at 3pm. Boom!
We have no doubt that family, friends, have spread the story of Ryman’s challenge and have COVERED her with prayers. I honestly don’t feel like I can stress how much we have felt God’s hand holding hers. We have been absolutely blown away with the love that people have poured out and continue. Your emails, text, phone calls, meal, and pop in visits are amazing. You are keeping our cups full in a desert.
My good friend Ashley Warren sent me this on Friday. “God made and equipped you specifically to be Ryman’s parents. She’s so blessed to have you guys already”. Please go hug and kiss your kids right now and thank God that he gave them to you.
