Babies: 0 - 3 Months

They have to start an IV on Ben now :(

He still hasn't peed and he was born 28 hours ago.  They consulted the neonatologist and she ordered some blood work, his potassium is 6.1 and should be 3.5-5 :(  

They just took him down for his ultrasound and when he gets back the nurse is going to start an IV and give him a fluid bolus.  We are hoping he is just dehydrated and that is the cause for all the concern.  We will know more later tonight.  Until then, he is a "special care nursery baby" and needs to stay there for his infusions and monitoring.  

UGH...it's breaking my heart!
