Urgent update on Seth

post #1 of 105
Thread Starter 
I am sitting in his Hopital room right now.FINALLY able to post this.
Seth was admitted to the Hospital on Friday night.
He has pnemonia and a very hard case of it.His right lung is 3/4 of the way full of pnemonia and he's not doing to good.
I was finally moved into a private room and asked for a laptop so that I could update my TCS friends.
Guys, I need prayers and prayers like I've never asked before.Seth's temp is 104 and they are talking about possible chest tube.He's not moving air through that lung at all and his temp is not staying down.Right now he is resting as best as he can.You know how Hosp. are though. He gets breathing treaments every 3 hours and they use a precushion (sp) every 6 on him.He is on continuous oxygen and had had 9 full bags of fluid by IV so far.He is on Rosepharin(sp) every 8 hours.
PLEASE guys, I beg you to pray for my little boy.Shawn just left to go home and take care of the other 3 kids and will be back as soon as we get the word surgury is needed.
I have asked to be able to keep this in his room so I can do some research on treatments and all.
If anyone would like to know, he is in Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington West Virginia. on the Peds floor room 5364 bed 2
if you want to call and chat,PM me and I will give you the number.

Much Vibes for Seth. The best thing for him now is IV fluids and antibiotics, plus your love and support. Sounds like he's getting all three! I hope he won't need a chest tube, but if he does, know it's only to help him. I'm hoping for a full and speedy recovery. You'd be surprised how quickly a little guy like him can bounce back once he has the treatment he needs. Fingers crossed that Seth is about to show you just how fast and well he can get past this.

Awe Tammy,

I'm praying for you and your son! I hope he gets better!!!
post #23 of 105
I will pray for you all, and especially for Seth. I have cystic fibrosis, so I have a small amount of knowledge of how scary stuff like that can be (but it's always easier when it's you, rather than your child; I know ). Hang in there, and let us know how it's going when you get a chance...

Oh no, I can imagine how scared you must be I hope he starts to improve soon, and you can relax and get some sleep.

Take care

Seth is in a room with another little boy now.They had to clear out the one side of the Peds floor because of asbestosis.
anyways,Seth stoppede breathing and broke out in a rash.Good news, was the rash is only from the sheets.
Bad news, the x-rays show that he is getting worse instead of better.He is now going to be started on Vanakamicin (sp) which they say is the BIG GUN.I'm am as scared as I have ever been in my life right now.
We had the private room for about 15-20 mintues and now we have another roomie.He isn't as sick as Seth and I fear for him now also.
The Dr told me that we will have Seth take this antibiotic for a day and then go from there as to what we will do.There is still the high chance that a chest tube will be done.Right now, he has a mild Pluralinfusion or something like that.But, it can change and if so, then they will do the chest tube.
I can not thank you all enough.My family thinks I am crazy for thinking of you all as my family,but you all are.
HUGS!!!! They told me that I can keep this in the room with me as long as it doesn't get in their way.So, I can and will post as often as I can.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that. He's in good hands now and they will make him better in no time!

All the and vibes to calm your fears, and help your little one heal I am sending to you from me and my clan here in Iowa. You are in our thoughts.
Please keep us updated as much as you can.
