Avivah asked me to post an update for those of you who are concerned. When Yirmiyahu was originally admitted to the hospital on Thursday, we did not realize how serious his condition was. The admitting doctor told Avivah a couple of days after he was admitted that his condition had been critical and if we had come in a few hours later he would not have made it.
Needless to say, that is a very scary thought. Thank G-d we did get him to the doctor and hospital when we did.
After five days, as of this afternoon Yirmy has been taken off all the lovely plug-ins that you see in the image and has been moved from the pediatric intensive care unit to the regular children’s wing of the hospital. He is eating on his own, making eye contact, crying appropriately, sleeping well and even emitting some of his cute gurgles. He has not smiled yet and is still quite weak, so they are keeping him admitted for the time being. Avivah is with him in the hospital and I am holding down the fort here with my kids.
That is the update until I speak to Avivah again. She will probably ask me to add some details.
