The events of yesterday and today are such a long story, I barely know where to begin. I'll try to make a long story short.
For various reasons, Eric now has a new doctor, a very well respected pulmonologist. Ten days on a ventilator, and we simply weren't seeing improvement. In fact, Eric's condition was worsening. But as of this morning, when the new doc got aggressive with treatment, we're re-finding a glimmer of hope. Nothing like bilateral chest tubes to reinflate the lungs.
Thank you all for your thoughts, concerns, and especially your prayers. We truly need a miracle. Please check out my friend Jess' blog. http://jessyferguson.blogspot.com/2009/02/answer-is-always-jesus.html She very eloquently writes exactly how I'm feeling right now.
