Day 3 is behind us and we're still in pretty good shape - considering! Niall had the worst day today due to a recent separation from his morphine pump. The pain has really kicked in. It's very tough for him but news of the litres and litres of that amber nectar that Rory is producing is helping. I'm a bit like a spare wheel at the moment as there isn't much I can do for either of them. Rory had another ultrasound on Niall's old kidney today and they said it was very good looking - so at least now we have clinical proof that Niall's beauty isn't just skin deep!!!
Rory's continuing to produce the goods at the rate of around 80ml per hour. His blood pressure is stable (ish) and although still ventillated, he is breathing on his own. Even while heavily sedated he was making attempts to get out of bed. Horse's doses of sedation and he still wants to run a muck! God help us all when he is back to full on Rory power!
No date yet for moving him out of ICU, they are working at getting his fluid balance right - which is a question of trial and error, but he has made a very good start. The team are with him round the clock and are, as ever, attentive to our every need. Their vigil is constant, caring and utterly awe inspiring.
All your messages are fantastic - I really look forward to logging on. It is hugely supportive to know that so many people all around the world are thinking of us. I will have more photos soon when the boys are back to their photogenic best!!
