Update 5-20

We apologize that there were no updates yesterday, it was a rather long and hard day on everyone. When Jason tore out his IV a bacterial infection was introduced into his blood stream, in his condition this caused him to go into respiratory distress and run a very high fever.  This was extremely bad timing because his system is so weak and his WBC’s are non existent.  He was immediately put on antibiotics and they tried to use Tylenol to help break the fever, since Jason is deathly allergic to aspirin.

Jason had an adverse reaction to the Tylenol and he was immediately moved to ICU and was treated for the reactions.  He did have a few complications.  Bea and I felt it would be best if one of us came back up here to be with him through this very rough stage of his recovery.  As things were and are looking we were unsure of the outcome.

The liquid that formed in his lungs has been getting worked out, but he still has a high grade fever combined with low BP and an erratic/high pulse.

For now he is as comfortable as we can make him and with the help of one of the techs I have his music playing.

We are making the posts so that his sister and family can concentrate on the important things, Jason’s health.  Keep them and Jason in your thoughts.
