Take a deep breath for Bob!
Well, the road has been very slow! Bob did great through the surgery, but his recovery has been very slow going. His body had retained so much fluid that his kidneys couldn't do the work to remove it, which unfortunately left him on the ventilator. This weekend they decided to start dialysis in order to try and give his body a jump start and get rid of some of the liquid. The ultimate goal being getting him to breath on his own! While still slow moving, the ventilator has been turned down meaning we are heading in the right direction! Today I want everyone to think flushing and deep breathing thoughts and let's see if we can give Bob a little assistance.
