It has been a long day. Piper still hasn't peed since surgery. She has to pee to prove that her kidney is working properly. Also, her heart rate has been raised all day. She has been running a fever off and on, and she has been fighting a lot of pain. They increased her pain meds tonight. We hope if we minimize the pain, her heart rate will go down. They have been pumping her full of fluids for the past 24 hours. Unfortunately, her body doesn't know what to do with it all. She is swollen from head to toe. The worst part is that her abdomen is also swollen, and it is putting pressure on her incision.
Please pray that Piper pees. I know it "sounds" silly, but it is very serious. Thank you.
