Logan came through surgery today around 3pm. He now has a central line placed. Rebecca says it is a little scary looking, but they can get over that if it's a means to getting him feeling better.
He was started on a 24 or 48 hour EEG today (depending on what they find and what the doctors are comfortable with). The doctors are once again pleased with the results thus far. What they were expecting to see (from what they were told at the previous hospital) was much worse than what they actually did see. [Did that even make sense??] The previous doctors were saying they were continuous seizures and that is why he had to be on 'so many medications'. What the doctors are actually seeing and interpreting here at Cleveland Clinic is allowing them to discontinue all his seizure medications except phenobarbital. woohoo!!!
Irving made a visit today to see little Logan, Darren, and Rebecca during the wicked snow storm today. It was special to see him, I'm sure. Rebecca said it snowed for 5 hours straight and it was a complete whiteout. It took the shuttle bus 2 1/2 hours to get to the Ronald McDonald house instead of the normal 5 minutes!!
So, Logan is still on the ventilator for help with his breathing while he battles the pneumonia/infection. He has a central line for IV medications, an NG tube for feedings and 'oral' medications and an EEG machine hooked up to his brain. They are not going to let anything slide here :o)
