4/22 Update on Kyle

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

I wish I could convey the thoughts and words my cousin uses when explaining Kyle's situation. She's there for each visiting hour at 8, 12, 4, and 8 again. After talking with her on the phone, I just cannot fathom the fear and sorrow she must be feeling right now. She's living every mother's worst nightmare. Her son, lying in an induced coma, struggling for his life.

The ICP (brain pressure) has been steady around 30, so they are putting him on diuretics again, even though they thicken his blood too much. The good news is that his temperature seems to be regulating by itself now and the fluid in the lungs is no longer a concern. They are planning on taking the ventilator out and doing a trach instead. This will keep from doing more damage to his throat and to his larynx. They will also be adding a feeding pen. They have been worried about infection, so this is another reason for the quick procedures now.

Your continued thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

Sunday Update on Kyle

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers for Kyle. He is not doing as well as they would have liked by now, in fact he seems to be doing worse this afternoon. The ICP (brain pressure) is too high, so they have to put him on a diuretic. However, his blood is too thick from the diuretic that it could cause organ failure. Please, continue to pray.

Thursday Update on Kyle

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Kyle progressed today. His ICP (brain pressure) started out at 22 but came down to 15. Unfortunately, it did go back up later this evening. They are going to start a feeding tube to get nourishment in him. They had stopped it because he wasn't digesting properly, but they feel he is ready. They say that if he continues to improve they will start to bring him out of the induced coma and trade the ventilator for a trach. Thank you so much for the prayers and thoughts going out for my cousin's son.

Wednesday Update on Kyle

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Things have not been good these past 24 hours. We've learned that Kyle has suffered a stroke caused by the pressure from the swelling. He has also developed fluid in one of his lungs and they are now siphoning that fluid out and putting him on antibiotics. They are having trouble getting him to regulate his temperature right now, and keep alternating cooling and warming blankets.

We've set up a page on FB for people to keep track of what is going on with Kyle. If you wish to go to that page, it is https://www.facebook.com/prayforkyle

Every prayer, kind thought, positive thoughts, anything is appreciated right now. Thank you!

    Hi,

I tried the Facebook group but cannot find it and the link doesn't seem to want to work for me.

Regardless, I'm sending loving thoughts your way.

Hugs,

Tuesday Update on Kyle

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Things are not going well with Kyle. Here is the latest from his mom. Please, continue to keep him in prayer:

There were even more complications today so we just feel deflated and defeated and we keep reminding ourselves that Kyle's Dr still says not to give up hope, its seriously bad but not over. He has promised he will tell us if that time should come. Again thank you for your comments, prayers, reposting, and support. The Dr told us today of a young man admitted January 1 same age as Kyle with almost identical brain trauma and complications who after a week and a half his health turned for the better and now that same young man is up walking and talking with continuing physical therapy but positive prognosis. That is why we won't stop praying.
