I have an update from last night sitting in kristen's inbox that I'm sure she will post later, but I wanted to send you a quick update from my phone to tell you we are ok. Matthew got very sick last night..he had been moved off of the epilepsy floor, and we were on the medical floor. Shortly after 1 am he got VERY sick. I was sure he was heading very quickly to the PICU with a ventilater. Miraculously, he was able to clear the secretions with a large vomit. But his cough was very weak and he couldn't hold his eyes open any more. He finally got some sleep this early morning and wasscheduled to have a bronchoscopy and scope with a possible addenoidectomy. He was still working so hard to breathe and is on high flow oxygen so I was concerned about doing the procedure. They send up an anesthesiologist to check him out and without listening tohim, he said it was ok to do the procedure. When we got down to the OR however the anesthesiologist said he was not willing to do the procedure and both surgeons agreed. I was surpisingly relieved. They worried that they wouldn't be able to get him off the venilater. So we are back in the room, and we are relaxing for the day. They are giving him steriods and extra nebulizer treatments to see if that will help.we will try to reschedule the procedure as soon as he is well enough. Thank you for your continued prayers..again I apologize for any spelling errors as this is being typed on my phone.
