Update, January 10, 2013

Hi Everyone:

Marci asked me to update the blog for her...  A lot has happened over the last 8 hours with regards to Ian's progress.  Ian's left lung is still collapsed and now his right lung is over expanded in an effort to compensate for the left side.   Ian was scheduled today for a procedure to have a PICC line inserted, however the risk of sedation was too great, given that he is going to be sedated tomorrow for the bronchoscopy procedure.  The bronchoscopy procedure will allow the Dr's to have full vision of his lungs, and get in there to get some deep suctioning completed.  So the plan is to do both procedures at the same time, bronchoscopy and PICC line.

As with all procedures this one comes with great risks...   Ian will have to be intubated for the procedure.  There is the risk that once Ian is intubated that they may not be able to extubate him.

Marci and Brian were able to get special permission to have Becca come up and see Ian tonight!

Everyone please keep your thoughts and prayers with Ian, Marci, Brian, and Becca.
