September 18, 2008 - 1;30AM (ish)

I'll just begin this by saying that Seth is currently stable.

Today was a rough day in that there was some miscommunication regarding iv/pic lines, Seth had a line placed (in a spot that he should not have had one, due to his recent surgery, but no damage done) and it blew.

But all that was nothing compared to tonight when he coded. Apparently, he had a blockage in his breathing tube and it caused his sats to drop, heart rate plummeted, etc. The staff at PICU performed CPR, called Leland & I, etc. As I mentioned above, he's currently stable.

The next "hurdle" is gaining a decent line for iv access (he currently has a couple of small iv lines). He's a pretty sick boy right now.

We're praying for rapid improvement. Thank YOU to all of you who have been praying with us so faithfully.
