    • Problems in Peru

      So we got a 3am phone call from one of Surfer Son's traveling buddies dad. Surfer Son is in the hospital!
      They were going surfing and Surfer Son didn't feel well, so he turned around and paddled back to shore. He passed out 2 feet from shore. He was blue. They had to do CPR. They took him to a hospital. It wasn't big enough. They took him to another. I called his travel insurance. They called the hospital. He's had X-rays. Some water in his lungs. He's on IV and oxygen and stable. In and out of consciousness. He might be transferred yet again.

      Don't know why he passed out. 2 days ago he told me his throat was sore and he saw a Dr and was on antibiotics.

      I have the hospital number, but can't seem to get through to them.

      I feel so helpless.

              • Update:
                Just heard from the insurance nurse. The report is "concerning". They are calling it a near drowning. They were moving him to a larger hospital so that's why we couldn't find out anything sooner. His heart rate and bp are good, (I can give #'s if you want) but they are still giving him oxygen. He's still in and out of consciousness and has no memory of it. We will get another update in about an hour.

                Seriously considering a flight to Peru.

                • I'm so sorry you're going through this. I'd be considering a flight too if I were in your place.

                  • I'd be checking flights..... We can compare BPs. Moms was 40/10 and asystole for "a bit" according to report.

                    • The fact that his vital signs are good and he has regained consciousness, even if sporadic, is a very good sign.

                      I'd be booking a flight for certain.

                      How are you, your farmer and daughter holding up?

                        It was 110/70, heart rate 112, oxygen saturation 88%, but with 50% oxygen added it was 98%.

                        We are doing MUCH better right now After trying ALL day, we managed to get through and spoke to Surfer Son and his buddies! He's up and walking around, watching TV but he's confused. Short term memory loss, doesn't think he was "out". His buddies are staying in the hospital room with him. The hospital staff set up an extra bed and a large chair. Insurance has been worked out - he's covered.

                        I can breathe

                        All their stuff is 4 hours away.

                        AND I can still add a sticker to today's calendar! Maybe I'll add 2 today as well as last night I didn't keep track of my food today, there was lots, but it was all primal.

                        Depending on what we find out tomorrow, I might not be booking a flight.

                            • I think I'll be heading to bed soon and trying to get some sleep. I'm dead tired.

                              I won't be checking or posting comments on anyone's journals tonight.

                              Sorry

                                Decent, considering what he's been through. The amount of oxygen should be able to be decreased, hopefully soon.

                                This is very encouraging.
