Brisan’s 9th Birthday In The Hospital

On the 22nd Brisan went in for dental surgery and cleaning but…. he is still in the hospital. He only came home for about 5 hours before we had to go back last Friday night due to a high temp and extremely difficult breathing. This past Tuesday, Brisan celebrated his 9th birthday. The staff and child life at CMH does a wonderful job of making all kiddos feel special on their birthday.

He had a lot of air in his tummy but more importantly developed an infection (septic) after the surgery.

Last night he was able to go from the PICU to a regular room because of his gradual progress in the right direction. Unfortunately he is heading back to the PICU due to moving in the wrong direction. It just doesn't seem like he'll be coming home anytime soon. On top of all that, Parker has his dental surgery tomorrow and hernia repair. pfft.

Most of you probably have been following Jennifer or I's Facebook posts but wanted to get this on the site for those of you that may not be on Facebook.


Brisan back in the ER

Jenn took Brisan back into the ER this evening. The last few days he has been very restless. He just had that look in his eyes that something wasn't right. This evening his skin was looking very “marbled” and his knees had swelling with redness (very warm to touch). Jenn stated this was similar look he had when he went into septic shock. Whatever infection he has been fighting (blood related) sure is giving everyone a run!
