Please Pray!


From MckMama's blog:
Our little trooper tolerated massive stretches of SVT for hours and hours upon end before finally hitting the wall in the early hours of the morning today.

We've seen Stellan this bad once before. It's heartbreaking. He's still in SVT and is pale and kind of dusky in color, listless, can't focus on anything or stay awake, has thready pulses and a bit of edema, cold extremities, low blood pressures, is clammy, has a low core body temp and his nurse can't get an underarm temp for him at all right now. My sister is here with us right now and she's holding Stellan.

The experimental drug plan has been kicked to the curb. Dr. B ordered the "new" med that Stellan started on Friday to be discontinued immediately. An iv drip of a beta blocker that Stellan has been on before back in March and April has been started now instead, to try to get Stellan's heart and body out of immediate danger. He's still in SVT and things have started to go downhill quickly as noted by his appearance and symptoms.

As far as what the plan will be if and when the iv beta blocker gets Stellan's SVT under control, time will tell, I guess. For now, it's one baby step at a time for our sweet little baby. This is just so hard for our family, you guys, I am having a hard time explaining it.

check it out!

There’s a great new “linky” service available and I wanted to let you know about it. It’s called MckLinky – www.mcklinky.com. After realizing the need for a new, reliable linky capability, Brent Riggs and MckMama, authors of 2 of my top blog reads, got together to create a free, easy to use linky service for all their blog friends.

MckLinky is a free link list feature that allows you to do include lists of other blog links like MckMama does on Not Me! Monday. You can use MckLinky any time you want your blog readers to leave a list of links on your blog. It’s simple, reliable, free...and loads of MckFun!
