Moved to PICU....

I just found out from Diane that Cody was moved from his room to the Pediatric ICU early this morning. He keeps getting fever, chills and blood pressure problems...

I'll keep you posted....

Diane called me at lunch. They are now getting more concerned. They have him on medication for his blood pressure and it seems to be giving him an irregular heart beat. They want to get blood and platelets on board in hopes that his blood pressure comes back up.

Thank you for the prayers.

I don't want to leave you all hanging but I also didn't want to speak too soon. Cody has not had a fever since yesterday evening. Unfortunately you all know he had other things going on. The combination of major chills and high temps all pointed to septic shock. Since he got platelets and blood this afternoon his blood pressure has held it's own. The medicine Dopamine (Spelling) that is used to raise his blood pressure gave him an irregular heartbeat. They were able to take him off it after the platelets. Actually now his temp is running a little low. It’s just one thing after another with the poor little guy. As long as we don’t hit anymore hurdles through the night, we may get out of PICU. We really need to see his blood start to recover. It should happen any day…

I would like to thank all of you for the continued prayers and support.

Mickey, I recently went through a serious scare with Hodgkin's (or the possibility of something worse). My normally solemn oncologist said he'd cross his fingers and toes for me. And so I had everyone around me do so too. I came out fine. So everyone let's cross our fingers and toes for Cody!!

Mick,

I don't know you and I only heard about your little boy through Jenny on the Beginners Forum on Runnerworld, but I wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about your little boy and sending as many positive things to him as I can. You and your wife are so strong and he is a tough little fighter. I pray to God that he will soon be on the mend.
