Alex and Maddy

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Today has been a hard day for both Alex and I emotionally. After all the surgeries of the last year, Alex is petrified of being put to sleep. I was so sad for him as I held him in my arms crying for hours with fear. I was also coping with the fear of bleeding after the procedure. I held it together pretty well until Dr. Koenig walked into pre-op. Seeing her and getting hug was enough to start my tears. I was okay once I held Alex in the OR and said my goodbyes.
The biopsy did not take too long. However, the anestheolog​ist came out and let me know that Alex had had a seizure when they were putting him all the way out. They videotaped it and showed it to Dr. Koenig so she is aware. He was totally fine by the time he got to recovery.
We are having our usual post anesthesia rash and temperature. We are also watching closely to monitor his bleeding and clotting. He had some blood coming out of his jtube, but it wasn't a lot so we are running some labs and will see what that shows. If his blood counts have dropped, we will transfuse more plasma and red blood cells.
If anything changes, I will post again tonight otherwise I will post tomorrow.
Th​ank you for all your prayers today.
Ali
