Dave is still waiting to go to the ER. He was suppose to be first case, but was bumped due to an emergency. His kidneys are still doing okay and his hemoglobin is up. The doctors are looking at his kidney function as a sign of how strong his body is. They are encouraged that his kidney's are doing okay, which is a good sign that his body overall is doing well. They are currently putting in a central line (rather than waiting to do it in the OR). The watts on his pump are increasing and they are afraid that the pump might stop completely. They want to have the central line in now so that if the pump does stop they have a way of keeping his heart beating until they can get him down to the OR. Will update as I can.
