Bigger improvements

I apologize if there are factual inaccuracies in this post. It has been written with the best information I have available at the time.

Last night Robyn went for a CAT scan. That involved detaching her from dialysis. When she got back from the scan they didn't bother to connect her back up, and her kidneys seem to be coping on their own now. Since this morning she has also been breathing without assistance, which is also good. Robyn continues to respond to input which is also good.

Next steps are that Robyn needs to increase her blood pressure, her kidney function needs to improve, and her kidneys need to start producing urine again. The kids also need to decide at what point they're going to go back home, which is hard for them at the moment as they're all pretty tired. It seems that discussion will happen tomorrow sometime.
