Crew is having some major problems.
He has had much swelling which became out of control, fluid in his lungs,(pneumonia is always a worry)
He is now on the vent and has been given some drugs for temporary paralysis along with steriods.
He has had an allergic reaction to something. They are not even sure what he was allergic to.
The doctor has been with him the last hours. This little guy has endured a lot today.
He will be critical for the next week as they watch for infection and many other things.
Again I am going to ask you to send an email to Marie to encourage her...She is hurting so bad. firstname.lastname@example.org
This was the post after the surgery before things began to unravel.
Surgery over and doctors looked confident!!!! But still have to watch him extremely closely this week. He did have to have a blood transfusion . They said penis was able to be closed and appears to be working! Bladder inside , smaller than they like but hoping the bladder gets larger. They created a belly button but said it might need modification later. He is not getting out of surgery room for about an hour or two because ortho is casting. He will go to PICU after.
