Last night Samuel's left kidney continued to drain blood and urine. His abdomen has swollen up again, which leads the Drs to think the kidney is also bleeding into his abdomen. Generally he looks more swollen in his face and chest too.
This morning the Drs from renal, neonat. and gastro will be talking amongst themselves and then get back to us with a possible plan for his treatment - but we know that treatment options are running out and one of the options may be palliative care. They don't think Sam would survive an operation to remove his bleeding kidney.
We continue to be thankful for the skill and care of the whole medical team - they are an amazing and dedicated bunch of people. But it seems there isn't much more that can be done medically for our wee boy..... so we wait and pray and hope.... yet realise that his little body has been through so much.... We know God can do a miracle, we just don't know whether he will... and so we trust Samuel into His care and will sit with Samuel and touch him and love him through the tears....as that is what we can do today.
This afternoon the girls will come to see him and we will explain to them how sick Sam is. This will be a tough conversation, but it's needed.
So we pray for strength for today. Thank you for your prayers for Samuel.
