Oakes condition is severe. He is just so very sick. Test results from yesterdays biopsy have not come back but treatment for rejection has already started. If he does not respond to those meds he may go on ECMO (heart and lung bypass) for a short time to give the lungs a rest and see if he can recover. He can come off of ECMO if he does, but if he does not recover then this will be the end of his short but precious life. Because of this quick rejection and the critical state that he is in, he does not qualify for another transplant or for the lung bypass machine that we have mentioned before.
I am praying for a few more miracles for my guy. I am also praying that he stays comfortable and peaceful while we go through this day. And that he knows we are here and feels all of the love that this world has for him.
