How do I start?

Cedric is not doing well at all. Friday afternoon he was transferred in an emergency to the PICU of children hopsital in DC. He was lethargic and seizing very badly.
The seizure are more or less under control but now he is all swollen and he has a purple rash. His body does not seem to absorb any fluids - he blood pressure is dropping. It is obvious he has an infection but the docs don't seem to figure out where. He has antibotics but it remains the same no improvements, they conducted spinal tabs, ct scan, blood work, EEG'S etc....

I am going crazy completely out of my mind and fighting to keep it together. There is like a very heavy silence between my daughter and I. I know she is struggling as well to keep it together and we don't want to mention the unthinkable but we know Cedric condition is very serious, but we don't say the words afraid of starting to cry uncontrollably, which I do in the bathroom but not in front of her or when I am with Cedric because I know we would loose it entirely.

I am hoping for a miracle here. He is struggling so much and I am mad because I can't do anything to help him. I am exhausted but hyper at the same time with all the caffeine I drank

Oh Michele,
I was just ;logging on to write to you to see how cedric had been doing and i saw this. My heart breaks for you all. I cant believe what is going on. Does Cedric have a pic line or anything like that iv?(is it possible that the infection is coming from those sources) anything that can cause the infection itself.Its happened to Kaylie before. .I pray that they can find the source of the infection and treat asap. We never stop thinking of you all. Please call if you need to talk..

I too had been waiting to hear how Cedric's weekend was, and the first thing I said as I read your post was, "Oh no:( " I pray that the doctors can find out what the infection is and what is causing it so they can treat it rapidly and get it under control!!! My heart goes out to you and your family. Please let them know we are praying for them, too!

Michelle, my heart bleeds for you babes. This sounds awful and scary. I can see why you're frightened about the worst that could happen. I hope that all those fears are unfounded and that the docs find the infection and can treat it. Whatever happens, you have your daughter and she has you. It would be OK to cry in front of each other, but I can understand why you're keeping your grief out of the situation at the moment. Once a mother, always a mother, hey? Sending your wee man lots of positive vibes, and you and your daughter lots of :hug: :hug:

Michelle,

I hope things are on the upswing for Cedric. Please don't forget that your daughter does need you now too. I can only imagine what it must be like for both of you to try to stay strong for the other one but you both need a soft place to lay your head and cry. It is ok to be her mother and tend to her needs too. Maybe she wants to not talk about things but maybe wants or needs to talk.
