this is an Ethan update.
`We finally got some good news! Yesterday they isolated the bacteria and started Ethan on the correct antibiotic. Today they inserted a tube into Ethan’s chest and drained over 150ml of fluids in the first 10 minutes. You could see in the x-ray they took after the procedure that his right lung could finally expand to his rib cage and the congestion was already starting to clear. They may be able to start weaning him off the ventilator in a couple days. We were becoming so discouraged after having nothing change in his condition since Saturday. This is what we have been hoping and praying for – a step in the right direction.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, but don’t stop now, we still have long way to go.
Seems that we are making progress. He’s still in need of any thoughts, wishes, & prayers that you can spare.
