Foley Catheter removed

Today was another good day. Ryan is now officially cleared of any infection. She should be off of the antibiotics within a few days. She also had her foley catheter removed. They waited 4 hours after the removal before using a straight catheter on her. The goal was for her to have less than 15cc's of residual urine in her bladder and she had less than 5. This is a huge step for her. We now know that she will not need an indwelling catheter and our hope is that in time we will learn that she has no need for catheterization at all. Ryan is still leaking a little fluid from the closure on her lower spine. Please continue to pray that it heals up quickly. I can't say enough how thankful we are to all of you. We are so blessed.
