Thanks, squinney, osso, Beth, edgar and CJ.
I hope I'm not violating her trust, but this is the latest update on little Tadhg's condition. He's been reeling since last weekend, when he had a bad reaction to the dialysis they've been doing to try and get rid of the fluids that are accumilating in his little body. He's quite swollen and now weighs over 11 pounds. Since then the transplant surgeon has put him on hold status. He wasn't stable enough for a transplant.
Anyway this is what Mom sent out this morning. You'll see why I think she's such a special person.
Some good news...Tadhg is much skinnier than yesterday. The diaretics are working wonders and he is peeing like crazy.
The heart transplant coordinator and surgeon have agreed that if he has another good day today, they will take him off
"hold status" tomorrow and then he will be waiting for a heart again.
Tadhg has been opening his eyes this morning and looking at us with a very tired look.
Have a good Thanksgiving. We have sooo many things to be thankful for...the great doctors, nurses and support staff at
the U of I hospital, our friends, our family, our health, everyones hopeful thoughts and prayers, the strength of our little boy,
and J's [Tadhg's 2.5 yr old sister] good humor.
