You may not be at all interested in this, but I find it quite fascinating. They are measuring Nathan's "output" here in the hospital. So he pees in a "hat" in the toilet. I have helped him get his IV pole into the bathroom several times while he has been here and each time he has peed in almost exact 200 cc volumes (on the hat 200 cc is about 6 oz). Typically he outputs 200 ccs. I can count on a 400 sometime during the night. I wouldn't have guessed hat a 45lb six year old boy would be able to hold a whole can of soda's worth of urine in his bladder.

Any medical reason for the consistency and the 200 cc increments?
