Running on empty

This is just a quick post.

Jack is in Intensive Care in Edinburgh Sick Kids after having well over 50 seizures. I stopped counting after 50.

They gave him so much medicine to stop the seizures from 2pm Saturday until the early hours of Sunday morning when a retrieval team flew up from Edinburgh to get him.

He was sedated, intubated and flown back down to Edinburgh at 7.15am Sunday morning. I had no sleep so my friend Emma drove myself and Granny Mac the 4 hour journey to the hospital.

He is still in Intensive Care. He was extubated this morning but is struggling to to breathe by himself due to a bad chest infection. They now have him on a C-Pap machine.

My lovely boy has been through the mill and I am hoping and praying for a good outcome.

That's all I've got for now.
