Update on Michael
I had to take him back to the ER tonight. This evening he had a loud pop around his ribs and then severe doubling over pain. They did a CT scan and found that he has 2 large pockets of fluid and blood around his ribs and lungs. They have expanded since Sat greatly. If the levels do not go down and they start pushing on his organs that is not a good path.

We have to see a orthopedic tomorrow for his arm and ribs. They are going to redo xrays and do a MRI. They still think his ribs are cracked but can not be for certain b/c of the swelling. Hopefully the MRI will give us the answers.

He is sleeping right now. They gave him some Morphaine (sp?) which knocked him to the moon. He does not really take medicine. Hardly ever does he wvwn take a tylenyol. He only takes his daily meds. He was so drunk and funny on the way home I almost peed on myself coming down the interstate.

Believe it or not my MIL came after she got off work and stayed with all 6 kids while we went. I think I am going to pass out. LOL That is twice she has been here today.

Keep praying and I will update as I can. It is now 553 am and I still haven't got to sleep. I am just going to stay up until 630, get the older 3 up and dressed. After I take them to school (I don't think Michael can drive ha ha) I am going to come back and go to bed. I should get back by 8 and all 3 babies will sleep until at least 11 so I hopefully will get at least 3 hrs. Keep praying please and I hope to report good news from the orthopedic. Carla

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
WOW...I just read your other update. I hope he is ok...why isn't he staying in the hospital?? My mom was kept for a week just with breaking her foot. I guess all areas are different. I am praying for all of you. Carla, I would seriously ask the dr why they are not keeping him under observation with the blood clot and have enough on your plate with all your kiddos.

Mom to Matthew, 01/16/08, GERD baby, has been on Zantac since 2 mos. Aidan, his twin brother, no GERD. Max-ed out on Zantac at 1ml-3 times/day, and switched to Prevacid 15mg split tab 08/20/08. Switched again to 20mg Prilosec 09/18/08 due to Prevacid's restlessness/headache side effects. Reflux was out of control again and had to switch to 10mg Nexium 02/11/09. Good result so far.
Hope he'd feel better soon. Pls keep us posted. And pls take good care of yourself. H..U..GGS!!
Check with your
doctor first!
