No Changes

We are asking for prayers, positive energy and thoughts because at this moment no changes have happened.

At this time Lennon is on the breathing tube being supported comfortably with sedation and medications to fight “whatever” infection has consumed him.

The biopsy indicated no rejection and appears to be functioning. However, since he is getting TPN and some of his medications are processed by the liver, it can make it work harder. He has colitis and inflamed bowls and infection they don’t know what it is.

The docs are worried due to the no changes but have not given up hope ..and these are their words. While they are waiting on culture results and other lab results it is unclear the infection that has taken over. Things are done to increase his white blood cell count but there is a fine line due to the immune suppression he requires.

This is a very difficult time for us as we are not sure which way it will go. We want to hang on to the positive thoughts and the faith that has brought Lennon through so many times before. Lennon is critically ill and only time can tell if he is going to pull through this one. I hope, I pray, I cry, and I worry…

He is a little puff-ball and they are going to help him loose the fluids. The cultures still have not grown anything to indicate what kind of infection might be going on. Talking with one of the docs today, it could be this yeast infection that caused all the trouble. Lennon does have some minimal (or huge – its in the eye of the beholder) they are not sure where it is and where it is coming from. He is very very sick. This is what we know.

Knowing that he has pulled through in the past it is difficult thinking about the alternatives. But they are real, it can go either way. I have a lot of anxiety that leaves me with chest pain, which lets me know I need to take care of myself. The support once again is overwhelming.

We realize that docs can only do so much and that the rest is up to Lennon and whatever powers there may be. It is difficult to fathom that after the long fight Lennon has endured and fought that it could just stop. I belief in his spirit and will to live but still realizing that his body may have different actions.

We fear the unknown and the no changes! How true those words are today and every day in which we don’t know what will happen next. Realizing that while the doctors of the PICU do everything within their power, it could not be enough. Again I pulled by the thoughts that he is a miracle and an inspiration with the will to live.

    I’m still here, checking in often to see if there are updates. I prayed for him in church this Easter Day.
