I can't promis this will make sence

I am sleep deprived and just emotionally beat. First of all I want to say that I have the best family and friends ever. You all have helped me through this difficult time. Even people I have never met have given me good thoughts of encouragement. There is so much good in the world and I wish it was not at these times when you always see it there.

Cache has had a rough day. He surgery took about 3-4 hours. There was an infection at the sight of the defibrillator and was starting to creep up the outer wire. So everything was removed and he was flushed out. They placed two drains, one by the heart and another in the stomach where the defibrillator was. They then placed temporary lines and are currently pacing him externally. Cache was still very out of it when we finally got to see him. He was pale and clammy, but we thought it was just the medication and he would be bouncing back soon. Eric and I decided to grab something to eat while he was asleep. When we cam back Eric and I both thought he looked worse and more pale. I then grabbed his hand and it was blue and cold. The nurse at the time had another child she was trying to take care of and I think she was way too busy to have Cache and the other child. Once we got everyones attention they were on it. This now holds a tie with my other worst day ever. Cache began to seize and his blood pressure began to fall. Seeing someone seize is not a pretty sight. It is horrible! They found out that his blood sugars were low. It brought back a lot of memories from last summer with Dylann and her blood sugar doing the exact same thing. That is the day that ties this one for worst day ever. They are not sure why his blood sugar dropped, but I think it is probably a combination of things such as stress and medication. There is a chance for infection in the brain and/or spinal cord, but all the tests are showing negative. Which could be a good thing because we can manage the sugars without anymore problems.

Cache is now sleeping quietly next to me and is all drugged up. We have a awesome nurse tonight and he is so on top of his care. God should bless good health care workers!

Keep us in your prays as our battle is only 1/3 of the way there. Lots of love to all you!

Oh my goodness, you poor thing! Seizures are scary, but I can only imagine how much scarer they are when it's your own child. I hope everything starts getting better soon for you. Your in our thoughts and ya!
