Post-Op: Day 7

Beth here. Charles is in Lexington with Dottie, that's why there haven't been many updates. 

So the good news is Kit is breastfeeding. She's great at it, though she gets tired easily. Her feeding tube was removed this morning, and they are weaning her off the oxygen she gets through her nose. She looks great. 

The not so good news is that her kidneys are having issues. The doc said they are injured and that we need to get her outputs and intakes more balanced. This is pretty scary, but she's not at risk for dialysis, but that the kidneys are giving us warning signs that they need a little help. Hopefully I will know more later. 

6:41 pm - update
It looks like with any luck, Kit is just dehydrated. Will know more in the morning.
