Finally a light..
Finally we are seeing the bleeding out of the chest cavity slow down. It has been a long hard battle. He has had continuous transfusions but now needs fewer. He has had constantly a minimum of four to five people looking after him at one time, often more and in the surgery at least 20. We are bowled over by the staff here.
Iain is not out of the woods yet. He has a big hurdle when they add blood thinners which they must do as he is still on the ECMO machine and will be for a few more days. He is chemically paralyzed and is also on pain chemicals but John and I tell him about your messages. I would say John and I can breath now.
I do not always respond but it is of great comfort that people that people are thinking of him and sending us their wishes. It really is.
I honestly can say I thought last night we would lose him. More hurdles but a light at the end of the tunnel.
