Michael Saturday update

Today was a little better! The lung doctor thinks he will stay in our world a little longer! It was touch and go for a few days there but he is back on the nose oxygen tube and it is keeping his oxy level in the 90s. We are finding out daily new things that are wrong but they are trying to keep ahead of the program with antibiotics. Today we started on an antiviral med for the virus in his throat.

Still don't know all that is going on in his lungs besides the pnuemonia but they are working on it. Still don't know if he has TB so I am still wearing the duck bill mask as in his sisters and bro. That is all the visitors we are allowing at the moment. His resistance is so low that anyone could bring in anything and it could turn downhill all over again.

I honestly not sure I could endure another week like this one. Walked off the curb leaving hospital today with bags to bring home and stepped on air. Skinned elbow and both knees. BUT didn't break anything so I was lucky!!

Dogs were so happy to see me. Think they thought I had left for good!! Harlie and Scrappers won't leave my side. But alas I have to return tonite and they will be sad. Clothes are done washing. I've repacked and packed Michael a bag too so off I go back. It is an hour so I will get there around 10. Hope I can get in!! Doors lock down in 20 minutes!!

Anyway that is my news for today. I will try to post again in a few days. Please keep us in your prayers!
Kackle, even in the worst situtations, it relieves tension! Needless to say we have had a few chuckles at the hospital! Michael is still a smart mouth, even in illness! =0)

I'm so sorry to hear what is going on with your son.

I hope he gains weight, gains strength and fights this battle quickly.

I'm really praying for you all and hoping Rabbit is dancing again soon. He is such a joy to know and I'll always be grateful that our worlds collided on the www. Take care of yourself too, you must be exhausted. Lots of hugs and kisses to you both. Thank you so much for the update. - G

Keeping you all in my thoughts and sending hugs and positive energy your way. I'm sure you are exhausted so remember to take a moment to just breath. Tell Michael to keep fightin' the fight (glad to hear he's still a smart mouth- that's a good thing :-)).

At least Michael is still in good spirits. That has to help. Sounds like he's making a turn for the better. I'll keep praying.

The doggies know something is going on.
