Well, a few rough patches, but got the NG tube out this afternoon and allowed clear liquids finally. Even coffee! All he has had is ice chips and small sips of water. (besides the IV stuff). Heart rate has been a bit high at times and some arrhythmia, but they are watching it. Kidneys took a beating, but still hoping no long-term damage.
We also went for a short walk around the hall this evening. He's very weak, but improving quickly!
Thank you for asking!
Here's hoping for a full and fast recovery now that he's on the mend. Kidneys can tolerate quite a bit of abuse, so crossing my fingers that he will suffer no lasting effects.
