After the euphoria of yesterday, it is now back to the painful grind of reality. Ned is very, very sick and his life remains in the balance. We are back to the hour by hour battle to maintain his blood pressure at a sustainable level whilst his body fights the sepsis caused by the infection.
He is having to be pumped full of fluids to keep his his blood pressure up, but each time this fluid slowly leaks back out until the pressure drops again, and the cycle is repeated. This is not sustainable, and we need to hope and pray that this damn sepsis, which is causing this problem, leaves him soon.
I don’t have time to write long updates at the moment. He is so unstable that we simply just don’t know what is going to happen next and our time with him is extremely precious. Last night’s operation bought us time, but not much else.
Please, please, please keep sending your love, prayers and support. I believe that it has played a huge part in sustaining him this far.
