Jana and I sat through rounds to hear what was going on with Cohen this morning and we found out that they are worried about his kidneys and lungs.  We knew it was going to be a long road for him but we didn't know how hard this would all be.  He hasn't peed very much and they know that his kidney's were damaged from the twin-to-twin transfusion.  We just hope that they haven't been damaged too much.  The nurse that's watching him told us that he peed a little bit for the first time last night, but it was a very small amount and not enough to make them feel better about it.  We hope and pray that there's plenty more pee to come.

There's also concern about his lungs.  He was just so early that his lungs didn't get a chance to fully develop and the ventilator is still needed to provide him with enough oxygen, but it's also damaging his lung tissue.  They moved him onto his other side and are going to x-ray his lungs again at noon.  If the damage is still there or its even worse they will be forced to put a different type of breathing machine in him.

We don't know exactly what all of this means, but the thing we do know is that both of these things need to improve quickly or Cohen isn't going to stand much of a chance.  Keep praying for Cohen because that's all we can do.  Thanks.
