Very Emotional Day

Well all I am going to try to make this short as it has been a very emotional and long day.

They are now wondering if Caleb is in Congestive Heart Failure. They have requested the Cath lab reports from Pittsburgh and are considering doing another Cath Lab here as he was so sick and things may have changed with his heart during this time.

In addition, they said his lungs don't look any better, in regards to the fungus, by x-ray. However, he is still extabated at this time. However, they said the fluid around his lungs is worse.

In addition, they are starting to get more concerned about his eyes. Opthamology came and did an exam today and said that they do not believe the fungal infection has spread to his eyes and his optic nerve looks good. But, they are wondering if his fungal infection has spread to his brain. So they are going to do a lengthy MRI that will check to see if the infection is in his brain, hopefully sometime tomorrow. They may try to do the MRI and Cath Lab tomorrow.

Dr. Markert (the Thymus Transplant doctor) told the critical care docs that she is not sure Caleb would survive the Thymus Transplant in the condition he is in now.

So that is where we are right now. We are very nervous and scared!!!!! Please continue to pray for Caleb.

God Bless Caleb!!

My heart sank as I read your latest post Sarah. I am so sorry. I know you must just be feeling crushed tonight, and you have every right. This is such a scary time for all of you. I am glad to know you are such in a capable hospital, but I am sure you are also missing your PA medical team that you knew so well.

Take care Sarah...and please keep us posted. So many things up in the air right now for sweet lil' Caleb...it is absolutely heartbreaking, isn't it?

You are in our thoughts...
