My Brother in law was in a near fatal accident last Sunday to. Which he is still in Icu in a medically induced coma. Here's the events that have played out in the days since
Day 1. spleenectomy, esophageal tear repair, drainage bag to pull excessive blood from chest cavity.
Day 2. Removal of 1/3 of colon colostomy bag.
Day 3. Failed attempt to remove vent.
Day 4 femur repair.
Between day 4 and last night numerous attempts to remove vent have failed he wakes up from time to time and tried to get up to which they have to sedate him again received word that they want to insert a trace but now he has dbl pneumonia.
My Question???? Has anyone else ever been through this with a favorable outcome?
