Folks there are so many threads out here now on this topic that I've probably broken a multiple thread rule or something but it looks like we still need our Prayer Warriors..

Right now, with the bone flap out, Matthews head should really sink in on the right side - especially 10 days post surgery to remove flap.. It's not and he's having too many headaches.. CT's are showing mild Hydrocephalus / blockage of CSF flow from part trauma/scar tissue etc.. If we see ANY outward swelling we are immediately to be off to Vandy again.. Meds almost never help with this.. 2 surgeries can - one and most common is a permanent shunt and they stop up and cause infection + it's a valve and line under the skin on your head with a tube running down through your neck/chest/into your abdomen - for life. The other choice is Endoscopic third ventriculostomy which if need be will be our choice of surgery.. I cant begin to tell you how scared he is of this then yet another surgery coming 12 wks out if theres no infection left... I am so fearful of what the "limit" may be for my son.. He's SO sick with infection due to the last surgery and may need 2 more surgeries.... I am sick to a point of throwing up right now thinking about it.. I've slept a few hours tonight but stayed up and on the couch so I can hear him call out.. PRAYING God tells us / Shows us what we need to do so we make the right choices for our son!

I'm on about 3 hrs sleep HOWEVER I have researched the &^%$ out of the surgeon our current surgeon has suggested for the Endoscopic third ventriculostomy if we have to do it..

For the moment, following hours of research on the % of success of this surgery specifically for TBI related Hydrocephalus - it looks very promissing.. Also, the 2 surgeons at Vandy I researched as being the Top Gun for this (one of which turns out to be the one our current surgeon suggested) are both surgeons who have successful careers that included 10+ yrs at Johns Hopkins Hospital which made me feel better too.. Dont get me wrong - we dont want this surgery but, what I see is pointing in the direction of it having to happen so again I will be spending a lot of time considering who and why so to be a little ahead of the game.

Thanks everybody..Thanks for listening to my blabbing and for the Prayers for Matthew and my family!!

I am not that strong of a person - VERY emotional when it comes to my children - so I HAVE to believe the Prayers from all of you are what has given us the strength to resist becoming a basket case.. Just yesterday at lunch - came home to eat and chk on my wife and Matthew.. He cried for just a few seconds and said, "Daddy, am I going to be ok..? I cant take much more of this".. I looked him in the eye and told him God was in charge - he did NOT bring him 4 yrs down this horrible path to just kick him off in the weeds and that I truly believe that if he will continue to fight and be as strong as he can be, he will be ok.. I walked out the door - 5 minute drive to work and 10 minutes needed to compose myself before re-entering... It's honestly been a 4 yr roller coaster to he11 and back and the only way we'll keep it together is thru prayer - ultimately thru God ...

Every time I read one of your post my heart breaks with pain for Matthew and your entire family. My prayer is for Matthew to be filled with Devine Peace and Tranquility. I can not imagine the fear, pain and unknowing you all must feel. I hate to hear stories like this because we can’t help but to ask… “WHY”. My prayers continue for you and your family, may God bless you all…

As far as I am concerned, you can babble on here all you want or need to. You have to have some way to release the pressure and I, for one, feel honored that you trust us enough to share your struggles and your joys with. I am praying for Matthew and your family. May God shower you with His blessings

Thank you all !!

Today has been tough.... we're scared to death of this "new" issue likely requiring yet another surgery AND the low grade fevers.. Anyway, God knew we were had more than we could handle - so we handed some of it back over to him.. My 16 yr old and his GF, who by the way is the sweetest Christian young lady I may have ever met - showed up here instead of going out and watched movies, talked Matthew into eating a TON of cheese sticks and pizza (biggest meal he's eaten in 13 or so days) and just spent a lot of time talking and cutting up with Matthew.. It changed his whole demeanor AND they are planning a big movie night for him for tomorrow night too! Thank God for sending these reinforcements as his tears, fever and the worries had all but gotten the best of us today and when God heard us say that - he sent help.... We still have a long way to go but every day I learn more and more about trusting God and being ever so thankful for my prayer warriors on TnDeer and everywhere else!!!

Really no improvement at home \:\( Has to force himself to eat.. Head hurts so bad he cant/wont get up for anything but the bathroom.. Muscles are starting to realy freeze up in his legs..

Headaches no better and fluid retention on brain is the same.. I'm guessing we'll be called back early this week to consult for a endoscopic 3rd ventriculostomy surgery - probably quick if the surgeon thinks its an option.. Otherwise, they'll push for a permanent shunt which we will refuse until all other options are exhausted due to knowing TOO much about the problems associated with shunts.. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe he'll still snap out of this but after nealy 14 days post-op the chances are getting more slim fast.

Thanking God yet again for having lead me to post Matthews situation on TnDeer so to become associated with SO many Prayer Warriors and just fine ole Christian folks!

He slept well... Still having low grade temps so we are doing preventitive maintenance there since fever spikes can create seizures - which is what got all this mess where its at now anyway.

Wife took a turn on the couch last night outside his bedroom door so she'll be sore and tired today \:\( Not really sure what the doc will say today. Our home health nurse will come today and pull blood for his 1st level chks since the hospital - those come back pretty quick so maybe he'll keep us at home - maybe he'll call us back, I just dont know.. I just know I would not wish a situation like this on anyone..... So sick and tired of feeling absolutely helpless in my sons recovery.

Thanks again for EACH AND EVERY PRAYER!!

Well, hoping I SURE dont make his Surgeon mad but my 2nd opinion process started today.. I'm just getting 0 answers on the pain/headaches and the CSF drainage issue so I'm calling in an old friend!

Our original neuro surgeon works out of Lebohner in Memphis and since the seizure surgery itself was out of his specialty list we went to Vandy for this.. What's remaining now, infection, bone flap replacement, Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy are all IN his list of specialties - I'm having a copy of all records sent to him per his nurse this morning.. Given our status and seeming lack of answers we all prayed, including Matthew, and ALL 3 came up with the SAME conclusion - let's talk with our old doc from Memphis and see what he thinks.. He also told Matthew when he was 19 and saw him at Lebohner Childrens Hospital - that he would see him in that hospital for as long as he practiced if he wanted.. Not sure how many of you have gone from the Childrens Hospital world to the Adult Hospital world, with your child, but it's a life changing event.. I really wont expand much but the Childrens Hospital staff are SO compassionate and reactive whereas in the adult hospital - not so much. Matthew having had this happen as he turned 17 and then having to have been managed by us somewhat for the last 4 yrs has kept him from being fully prepared to make the transition - or maybe it was just a huge disappointment for him to see the difference - either way, we are going to get a 2nd opinion and open up some options for Matthew - Lebohner being one of those options.

Sitting now, in my sons room with him, watching Courageous - the movie... SO many things about being a father to be taken from this movie.. SO many things to Praise and thank God for in our lives - that come to light in watching this movie.. And as I watch this movie, even given Matthews last 4 yrs have been very tough and Kim's, Jacob's and mine as well, I thank God for every single minute He has blessed me with to have my family...

Not much else to say but that I am glad I watched this movie and hope those of you who have not will and that those of you who have take it to heart because our God is real and gives us blessings that we so often take for granted - something I myself have done too often..

Praise God for all Blessings!

My wife and I have been trying to sit down for a week and watch Courageous. I have heard many good things about it. Hopefully we get to see it soon.
My wife and I talked about Matthew and you guys tonight. We are praying for you all!

Planning to watch Grace Card with Matthew tonight..

Last night, he made a comment that he's made before and while it always hurts it hurt more after watching Courageous... Matthews comments are "Ya'll have had to suffer for 4 years because of my illness and it's just not fair" - "it would have been easier for everybody if I had not made it".. Spent a good spell talking to him after that comment last night to help him remember how many hunts we've been on in this 4 yrs, a few fishing trips, trips to Beach Lake pulling him on an intertube watching him do some of the goofiest moves on an intertube I've ever see with the whole family laughing at him.. So often, and I'm there now - we get so wrapped up in a "situation" (which we are in now) that we forget the blessings from yesterday and the day before and how BLESSED we were to have had them.. After he an I talked I could see that he was happier for knowing he himself had been a blessing and that only this "situation" has been a burden and one that we are leaning heavily on God to help us through.. One of my daily prayers is that I am allowed more blessings in the form of hunting trips, fishing trips, lake trips etc with Matthew in the future..

Thanks yet again to each and every one of you!! Some of the very best people I have ever encountered hang out on TnDeer...!

It's all perspective.

You all have been blessed to have him these 4 years, and all you had to put up with was his illness. A privilege well worth the price!

Well - here we go again.... At least we did get done watching Grace Card....... Home Health nurse is on the way - picc line wont flush and wont retract blood - repositioned - nothing.. Clotted most likely which means she'll do an IV in the other arm for tonights meds and we'll drive 6 hours + spend 4/5 at Vandy to get a new picc line tomorrow \:\( Man we are beat down...

Another blessing, well 2!! They gave me some instructions over the phone - wasted another saline flush - could not pull blood either.. The HH Nurse who was 45 miles away but lives 8 miles away just left.. She litterally screwed on the saline and flushed with no effort \:\) So Blessing #1 - No ER trip , Blessing #2 - A WONDERFUL HH Nurse who told us to stop apologizing and call her anytime at all!!

I'm giving the glory to God on this one!! I've been IV infusing, flushing for almost a week - no problems at all.. Wasted 3 salines tonight - it was clogged.. Karen was an hour away and I had an hour to pray.. Prayers answered IV infusion happening now and I will do the followup flushes in about an hour and hopefully get some sleep after that ;\)

Good night last night - after all the hooplah over the IV..

He woke up at 5 with a headache and had been without the allowable every 4 hr pain med for nearly 10 hrs so I got him one and back off to sleep.

He has a CT today to make sure the mild hydrocephalus has not gotten worse - and by visuals it has not, so granted it truly has not we'll stay hmoe.. If by chance the CT shows a worsening of the CSF path swelling then we'll be off to Vandy - when and if that happens it will be for an emergency surgery - likely a 3rd ventriculostomy which we pray wont be necessary but if it we feel God will see us through that as he has the rest!

Thanks for hanging with us Prayer Warriors!!

Your family is in my thoughts daily and I anxiously await each of your updates, always hoping for good news. Having had a small taste of what you're going through when our son had surgery at Vanderbilt 10+ years ago, I realize nothing is more draining. While seeing one's child suffer is the most difficult part, several days and nights of catching a wink of sleep in hospital room windowsills and on the mezzanine drags one down in a hurry. My heart truly goes out to you and the family!

Matthew had a good day yesterday.. Took 1/2 the pain meds he normally does.. Had a CT here at home that will be express shipped to Vandy for review to make sure the Hydro situation is not getting worse - which all indications are that it's not..

Physical Therapy worked with him yesterday - still some mild left side weakness from the right side brain work but the therapist said he was strong as an ox \:\) but still a little weaker on left than right so they'll work on that twice a week..

Also have the release forms worked out for our paperwork heading out for 2nd opinions since at a minimum we KNOW we are dealing with a prosthetic replacement in an area where there's limited blood flow and following a very serious infection in that area.

Long way to go but wwith God leading us and all our Prayer Warriors walking with us we know we can hang in with Gods Plan.

Thanks Ferg!! Please tell Christine that her letter is on my mind every day.. Her honest, heartfelt and well directed words will be me forever. The last 2 days we "felt" fluid issues might be getting better as we can see a little difference in headaches and fluid pressure - swelling (in other words - he could probably handle it now). Matthew is so tender-hearted that I think I have scared him a little prior to reading the letter. He will get there - I will see to that ;\)

Have a great day and God Bless!

1st half of the day he had pretty bad headaches but he's tearing into a DQ Ice Cream Cake right now \:D His appetite coming back has always been a good sign we are praising God for seeing that for sure!

Thanks for hangin in with us on this long road folks! Matthew received a letter today from a TnDeer member, and letters from his children too! He said, "Daddy - the people on TnDeer have been nicer and more involved in this than lots of my friends" "and I dont understand why".. Asked him how many of the kids he's not hearing from go to Church and/or claim to be Christians.. He said, "the ones who still call and come by do, but not the others"..

God knows what he's doing if we'll only pay attention.. SO many of yall have obviously been paying attention and my family is blessed as a result!

\:D .. He appears addicted to the Blizzard Cookies and Cream Cake! He ate one, minus 2 slices, by himself in 2-days! Had me go get him another tonight.... lol

His 6'5" 225lb frame will be 6'5" 275 if he stays on this pace ;\) Gonna give him another week then on the recumbent bike etc.. Time to get the system back right - another surgery will be here (final we Pray) before we know it and I want his body ready to bounce back fast this next go around.

Little bit of a hectic day today.. Headed to the office this morning and as I was pulling in the wife called and said Matthew was throwing up.. Of course following brain surgery that can mean bad things. Came home - had an hour that was pretty crappy - a callback from the "oncall" at Vandy 2 hrs after we asked for one only to say the standard protocol: "bring him to the ER".. anyway, we assessed here, slept a while, has eaten a few times since.. After thinking it through - our folks at Vandy had him on Prilosec and a nasuea med and sent us home on neither while taking a daily IV anti-biotic and pain meds. I am trying real hard not to be aggravated with Vandy but they have "dropped the ball several times" in the situation \:\(

Keep the faith brother and we'll keep praying. Maybe there's a reason they didn't send him home with Prilosec and a nausea med? Is it common for the antibiotic and pain meds to make him sick?

It's common for both to cause stomach problems.. or so they told us at Vandy while he was in the hospital. I think it's recommended to eat with the HD pain meds and he often does not. I fault myself for not checking prescriptions before we left and questioning why some meds would stop cold turkey just because we were heading home.. Good thing is he's been eating since lunch now - no problems, and that DQ Cookies and Cream Blizzard Ice Cream Cake - 50% gone as of 30 minutes ago \:\) Thanks for the prayers!

I thought I told you to stop posting those DQ Cake comments. Just say he's eating and keeping it down for the moment. Seriously though hopefully everything gets stable at least from the medicine side. I can't imagine trying to keep it all straight.

We still have a lot of confidence in Vandy but moving forward we are going to have to take notes and ask questions before we leave (hoping the next surgery is the last surgery) next time.

It's just been a tough transition for us all.. All other surgery has been done in a Children Hospital - Lebohner and honest to goodness they leave no stone unturned.. Being in a large facility like Vandy + the transition into the Adult Hospital has been an adjustment for all of us..

Could not be happier with out surgeon (outside of the infection).. He calls us at home from Vandy to check on Matthew instead of his nurse doing it.... That says a lot to me!

Good day today so far - arguing with his little brother and goofing around on Facebook so he must be feeling better \:\) He's sitting up instead of lying down which I know is an improvement and he's been tearing up some of his Grandma's fried chicken too.

Praising God for a good day!!!

Matthew had his best day yet yesterday AND those knucklehead buddies of his I mentioned in a thread a few days back all piled out of a crew cab truck and filled up the living room yesterday afternoon.. Not sure if God sent them a message or if one of them is a TnDeer member but either way - it went a long way with lifting Matthews spirits!

Wife and I have been opting out of Church for a month now with all this going on so since only one of us has to stay with him I decided to get my rear up and go yesterday.. Great sermon and had a chance to thank everyone for cards, meals, etc from Church members.. Then come home to the "knuckleheads" above showing up too!

Praising God for a great day!!

Thanks guys.. There are some blood count issues resulting from the IV infusions at home which may/may not alter the process of the current IV ABX treatment. Next Monday's pulls will tell us most likely. His timeline of being home-bound could go in several different directions as a result of this.

He was up a lot yesterday. Totally off the "bad pain meds" but struggling now with the fear of the next surgery, fear of the bloodwork problems and fear of infection coming back.

Does absolutely no good at all but I sure wish I could take his place.

Kim and I are hanging in - leaning heavily on God.

Thanks again for all the Prayers!!

I could go on and on with names from TnDeer, including you PMT, of folks who have had a positive impact on: My faith - My value to Matthew in this struggle etc etc etc but the list is LONG and in fear of leaving one single person out (which I am quite capable of doing) I wont make a list.. I will only say that any single one of you can PM me or Call me anytime I can talk with you - if you have a situation of your own you'd like to just talk about.. I cannot begin to tell you how much the prayer threads on TnDeer have done for me personally.. Far more than most could fathom! Thank you ALL and God Bless you ALL!

Another day with no pain meds! Praising God for physical healing!

However his spirits are really low still. The inevitable "waiting period" inside the house for months to come, not sure if the infection will come back again, and surgery #6 The thoughts of all seem to keep him from enjoying anything much right now. Sure hope this passes as its tough on the whole house.

I do believe he's healing and given his blood work doesn't go any lower we'll stay on the IV meds for another 3.5 wks. Then move into the "sit and wait period". Then to surgery #6 provided No infection regrows.

Thanks to our Prayer Warriors and God Bless

Well, God handled it yet again! Had some issues this morning - our Surgeon was truly thinking it may not be good. Ambulance ride and a long day later the CT looked, better, not perfect but better and our surgeon was so relieved he cancelled our next week visit and changed it to 3 wks from then. Long day - wasted trip BUT that's the kind of "wrong answer" I can live with every time \:\)

Praising God for continued healing and an A1 Prayer Warrior Team!

I haven't spoke up on this thread but I do watch it religiously and have sent prayers as well. I see a lot of people posting on this thread but I believe that I can speak with confidence and say that there is a larger silent majority who are participating and praying as well.

After a loonngggg day yesterday, Matthew slept good last night...

Praising God for another day of good health for Matthew!

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers!

Something for you from some reading I've done: The great people of the earth today are the people who pray. I do not mean those who talk about prayer: nor those who can explain prayer: but I mean those people who take time and pray. They have not time. It must be taken from something else. This something else is very important--very important and pressing, but still less important and less pressing than prayer.

I've been very busy but finally got to read all of the replies and news. I have prayed for Matthew ( and family) and have noticed a bond you rarely see today , Kimber God has a plan I know so keep the faith and lean on Him ! We need to cherish our loved ones and always thank God for what hand we are dealt for we know a better day is in store for those who love and worship him . Words are words but true prayer in agreement are always good and I know God wants us to call upon Him and let Him guide us . Kimber you are doing the right thing I know . Prayers continue !!!

Glad u guys got some good news. Hang in there and stay strong. I'll continue to pray for the whole family. It's truly been a rough ride for your family with this situation and you guys deserve a break. Hopefully in time Mathew will be healed and the family will finally get the peace of mind that you all deserve. Stay strong my friend.

As always I am so thankful for you guys lifting us up in prayer.. Matthew is having a good day today. The last few days have been less of a physical struggle and more just the fear and reminder of the infection he's battling and the surgery coming up to replace the infected prosthetic plate that had to be removed and thrown away.. His spirits are good at the moment which helps my wife and I tremendously as we can't stand to see him suffer.

Thank you and God Bless you all!

Glad to know that Matthew had a good day. I think about Matthew and the whole family daily just like several others on here. It's AWESOME to see that soooo many people on this site really do care about other people and take out the time to post and pray for Matthew. It really makes me like the site even more to know that there's so many wonderful people on here. I hope Matthew has a GREAT night and hopefully you and your wife can get some rest. Prayers continue to come your way from mine. God Bless u all.

Matthew had his best night since we've been home last night !!! Went out for pizza - came home and watched movies + had more of a positive mood/outlook than he's had. Prayer works !!!

We feel like God is showing us all some light at the end of the tunnel while also teaching us a lot about what it takes to serve Him which is loving your neighbor as you love yourself. Thanks to each and every Christian on this site and may God bless each and every one of you for playing a role in Matthews recovery!!!!!

Thanks so much for the prayers and everything else!

Will know more this evening when this mornings blood-work info is available.

I'm sure hoping he doesnt get this crud of a cold I'm dealing with but only time will tell.

His 2nd opinion Dr Appointment is coming up pretty quick... kind of looking forward to hearing what they have to say.

Well the bloodwork came back and it's back a little "whacky" in comparison the labs taken at Vandy mid last week. It's a mystery to me how certain lab results could be 4.0 at Jackson last Monday, 8.1 at Vandy last Wednesday and then 4.2 at Jackson yesterday.. Of course Vandy says theirs IS correct ;\) All I know is I look forward to the day that this nightly IV, weekly blood-work, planning for further brain surgery and recovery from all are behind us!

On top of everything else he woke up sneezing and kind of stopped up this morning.. SURE hope I have not given him this dang cold I have since with all his seizure meds he cant even take cold med's of any kind \:\(

For now, no Red Alerts, No Fever and he's up and going places some so I'm praising God for those blessings and being patient in terms of what's remaining while staying steadfast in prayer.

Thanks Prayer Warriors!

Mark 10:51,52

So Jesus answered and said to him, "What do you want Me to do for you?" The blind man said to Him, "Rabboni, that I may receive my sight."

Then Jesus said to him, "Go your way, your faith has made you well." And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.


do not lose faith brother, we all are praying and God said that prayer is powerful, and that when we pray we should rejoice in his name for God is our Father and will never bear more of load down on us then we can handle. God may have you going through this because you are strong enough to handle it and you could be lifting the burden off of others. You are a good man and i pray for your son daily and hope that all works out and also that God watches over you as well.

I reckon it's just Newtons Law holding true.. It seems for every action there's an equal and or opposite reaction in his case.. Fix one thing only to break another or so it seems.. He's never had a problem with his daily seizure meds making him nauseous - now, he's throwing up, nothing there - just dry heaving and little else.. This is the 3rd time since we've been home 5-7 days apart and every single time about 9AM.. He takes meds hes been taking at 7 and 7 for over a year now, still at 7am and with a cracker so they dont irritate his stomach and we're still seeing this. His surgeon ER'd us to Vandy last week from this very symptom thinking there was a brain bleed or something of that nature and while I'm thankful to God there was not, we still now have another new issue to deal with - that they have no answer for. So, they've called in a med to disolve on his toungue 30 minutes prior to his morning medication - for the nausea.. A nausea med they give patients who are on Chemo for nausea based on what I'm reading.. No tests ordered for a stomach scope, no advice or "guesswork" offered, just MORE medication..

I'm praying that its just the IV meds & stress and that it will go away in time but only time will tell.

Thanks yet again to ALL for hanging in with us and lifting Matthew up in prayer!

Well, the surgeon has called back and now suspects the nausea is tied to the mild Hydrocephalus he's noticed since the infection - which he's also told us was tons better according to the last few CT's, one of which was done at Vandy last week. So, he has a partner who specializes in surgery to diagnose, treat and do surgery for Hydrocephalus so we'll see him as well as 2 other Dr's on the 20th of this month while at Vandy to see what he has to offer.

If the Hydrocephalus turns out to be an issue not resolved through the course of time/healing from the infection on his brain that likely caused it - then that will be brain surgery #7 and possibly #8 to look forward to... Hydrocephalus is rarely ever controllable with medication yet it would be the 1st tried, then a 3rd Ventriculostomy - drill a hole in his head on the other side and open up the 3rd ventricle to see if that fixes the issue then, if that doesnt work they drill a hole, insert a tube that runs under your skin across your head - down through your neck and into your abdomen - for the rest of your life.. And MOST who have them can tell you, they stop up, they get infected - they are an all new lifetime of problems...

Thanks Bud.. I let ALL this get me WAY out of kilter for about a 1/2 day, until about 15 minutes ago.. I let my knees hit the floor and turned the worry over to God because it's more than I can handle and makes me worthless to boot. Honestly feel better having done so.

I have to trust in Him to get us through this regardless of the bumps from here to there!

Well, I went home from the office with a better attitiude than I had started out with. He had a good evening - ate a good supper, watched some TV... He did take some time to naw on me a bit about how long its been since he's been able to DO anything besides be "watched" 24/7 by parents and grandfather..lol My response was simple, "You know I'd trade places in a heartbeat", "You know we stay close 24/7 because we love you", "You ARE going to beat this AND be self sufficient because God has a Plan you you" - And, I believe that! After all that he joked around some - got to see glimpses of the old Matthew \:\) which is always great! Not a CLUE what the weather is suppose to do this weekend but since my "crud of a cold" is finally getting better, provivded he's not sick then and the weather allows, he and I are going to shoot at SOMETHING this weekend! \:D Something about slinging some bullets always makes me feel better!

Kinda tough. More and more indicators pointing to hydrocephalus and he had an "aura" yesterday which is the pre seizure feeling he gets before a seizure. I was in the store and he was waiting in the truck so as far as I could tell - no seizure but aura's are not a good sign either. Spent too much time last night dwelling on the "what if's". What if all this surgery and infection was for nothing since it was to stop the seizures.

He and I stayed up LATE actually into the morning watching movies and talking.

The hydrocephalus thing could REALLY complicate things even more so seeing more signs of that is weighing heavy on Matthew and us as well.

It's been a long 6-weeks since surgery #1 and it appears we may have even a longer road to travel now than we anticipated.

Wish I had better news

Well folks, was not the weekend I had in mind, yet we got up this morning so God presented us yet another day.

I wont go into details but the "shooting plans" I had over the weekend had to wiped off the the list due to the symptoms likely coming from the hydrocephalus issue. We did get out and ride some but honestly dont think he even enjoyed that this go around.. The additional symptoms, the additional need to to nothing but lie on the couch + being 21 yrs old is eating away at him bit.

The 19th of this month is when he and I will spend another day at Vanderbilt. We have appointments with 3 different Dr's so it will be a busy day. 3 very critical and different but related issues to cover and absorb the reccomendations of on that day so I cant say I'm looking forward to it in that regard but for Matthew I do look forward to putting that visit behind us in hopes of getting back to some level ground within 30-60 days of that date.

Thank you TnDeer and TnDeer Prayer Warriors for staying with us through this!

Lord, I come before You humbly this morning, as we start a new day, let's also start a new chapter in the Seager's lives. Let these prayers that are lifted renew their spirits and lift their hopes.

Bring Your will to their lives and Your healing power to their son, that he may bring to You, Lord, the glory that you so justly deserve.

These things we ask in Jesus' name -

Amen.

ferg....

Doing some scripture reading this morning and could not think of anything more fitting of this thread than what is below:

KJV Ecclesiastes 4:10

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he has not another to help him up.

Again I feel blessed by God to be a part of such a fine group of Christian folks as I am here on TnDeer! Praising God for knowing you folks are here "lifting us up"!!

God Bless you all!!

The battle Matthew and your Family is fighting gives all of us inspiration and a renewed faith in our Lord. What you do, what Matthew does, we are with you every step of this journey, as much as we can be. I'd be grateful to have Matthew in my foxhole.

Thanks to Each and Every one of you!

Matthew had a tough day yesterday.. Sick spell - more of what "appears" to be the hydrocephalus thing however by last night he was up and joking around a little... I WISH I could be as strong as my son!

Praising God for the strength he has given Matthew to endure this situation!

Ok.. Apologizing in advaance for the venting about to occur!

The situation we are in - is 100% due to Vandebilt not having a sanitary O.R. or sanitary personnel, none-the-less, Matthew is home with a bone flap the size of my right hand out of his head because they were not on their game + 6 wks of IV ABX at home making him sick as a dog, or at least we HOPE its the ABX.. Now, our surgeon guaranteed us not once but twice that he would do the followup surgery 4 weeks after the visit the 19th of this month, on or about April 16th.. This kid is sitting in the house, wearing a helmet every time he gets up in case he falls or bumps his head in some way to prevent injuring an unprotected brain and my wife gets a call this morning from his nurse saying that they've scheduled his surgery for May 14th!! He's on VACATION the 1st 2 weeks of May she says and he's too busy the last 2-weeks of April..
All I can tell you is I am about done being nice... I have a call in for the surgeon to call me and then he will still have to look me in the eye on March 19th.. If he cant do what he promissed my son on 2 different occassions and his life is to be endangered an additional month due to a busy schedule and vacation I am going to LOSE it with this guy! Enough is enough! They caused this and we are ready for them to FIX this, not prolong it even more...

Sorry for the rant but the secret to making me LOSE it is to mess my kids around somehow and at this point Vandy has messed around enough..

Thanks for listening... \:\(

Well said.... Rabbit hunter. It really gets under my skin that a DR. could give somebody his word and set a date for something soooo serious and then go back on his word and it's due to being to busy and vacation. To me someone's life is a lot more important then ANY vacation and if he's soooo busy then he needed to be straight forward in the beginning and not promise/set a date that he couldn't up hold. I hope u get it straightened out. I don't understand a lot of dr's or nurses. My wife is a RN in the NICU here in johnson city and she loves and takes a lot of pride in her job, taking care of very sick babies and I feel blessed that she is this way. It's a job but at the same time this profession is not like most of our jobs. It has to do with people's lives and if a person don't have it in their HEART to put their all into it then they needed to find a different career. There's plenty of times that my wife goes in and works extra just to help the other staff and that ensures that the babies get the proper care,yes the money does help but more then the extra money it comes from her heart to do this. She has been offered other jobs in the medical field that pays more money and would be day shift instead of night but I always tell her NO and the reason is because I want her to continue to help these babies that are struggling for their lives. I feel like God wanted her in this profession cause she has the heart that's needed to do the job right and take care of these babies just like she does our own. She almost turned this job down in the beginning cause we lost our first baby due to a miscarriage just a couple months prior of her being offered the job in the NICU. I think that us experiencing losing our first baby also has made her try to help out more and also go out of her way more to comfort these babies like we would've wanted our own taken care of if it would've been in the NICU instead of things going wrong during the pregnancy. This being said I believe that this DR. would be doing thing's totally different if he'd experienced what your experiencing right now with Matthew and if he had it more in his heart to do his job instead of doing it for the money. It takes SPECIAL people to be able to do jobs in the medical field that involves in saving lives and comforting people to the fullest that are struggling for their lives. I feel that you are 100% in the right for venting in your last post. I would be doing the same if I was in your shoe's and that's setting that DR. straight. I'll continue to pray for Matthew and the rest of the family. I hope this DR will look at this situation the way it needs to be taking care of and that's do what he said he was going to do and not put off something so serious due to being on vacation of all things. I'll also pray that God touch this DR's heart to understand how serious his job is and hopefully get this situation right and to make more professional decisions and choice's in his future of being a DR. Hang in there and keep us posted.

Prayers going up Scott. You might want to talk to that doctor in Memphis. A shame a doctor makes a commitment and then breaks it. I know you want to go off and you may have to but just remember you are representing Jesus brother. It is easy for me to say huh? Just trying to help keep you together man. You are one strong dude and Matthew...he is just off the charts! I just have this feeling with all the prayers going up and your faithfulness to God WE are going to get through this and it will make us all stronger! Going to my knees in just a few minutes to lift you all in prayer. Hang tough my friend!

Ok.. Apologizing in advaance for the venting about to occur!

The situation we are in - is 100% due to Vandebilt not having a sanitary O.R. or sanitary personnel, none-the-less, Matthew is home with a bone flap the size of my right hand out of his head because they were not on their game + 6 wks of IV ABX at home making him sick as a dog, or at least we HOPE its the ABX.. Now, our surgeon guaranteed us not once but twice that he would do the followup surgery 4 weeks after the visit the 19th of this month, on or about April 16th.. This kid is sitting in the house, wearing a helmet every time he gets up in case he falls or bumps his head in some way to prevent injuring an unprotected brain and my wife gets a call this morning from his nurse saying that they've scheduled his surgery for May 14th!! He's on VACATION the 1st 2 weeks of May she says and he's too busy the last 2-weeks of April..
All I can tell you is I am about done being nice... I have a call in for the surgeon to call me and then he will still have to look me in the eye on March 19th.. If he cant do what he promissed my son on 2 different occassions and his life is to be endangered an additional month due to a busy schedule and vacation I am going to LOSE it with this guy! Enough is enough! They caused this and we are ready for them to FIX this, not prolong it even more...

Sorry for the rant but the secret to making me LOSE it is to mess my kids around somehow and at this point Vandy has messed around enough..

Thanks for listening... \:\(


Wow , man that's just not right and so easy to go off Kimber but as Tom said your son needs you to keep your cool and hopefully prayers will be answered . Prayers lifted up and in agreement with all praying for this situation !

Well said.... Rabbit hunter. It really gets under my skin that a DR. could give somebody his word and set a date for something soooo serious and then go back on his word and it's due to being to busy and vacation. To me someone's life is a lot more important then ANY vacation and if he's soooo busy then he needed to be straight forward in the beginning and not promise/set a date that he couldn't up hold. I hope u get it straightened out. I don't understand a lot of dr's or nurses. My wife is a RN in the NICU here in johnson city and she loves and takes a lot of pride in her job, taking care of very sick babies and I feel blessed that she is this way. It's a job but at the same time this profession is not like most of our jobs. It has to do with people's lives and if a person don't have it in their HEART to put their all into it then they needed to find a different career. There's plenty of times that my wife goes in and works extra just to help the other staff and that ensures that the babies get the proper care,yes the money does help but more then the extra money it comes from her heart to do this. She has been offered other jobs in the medical field that pays more money and would be day shift instead of night but I always tell her NO and the reason is because I want her to continue to help these babies that are struggling for their lives. I feel like God wanted her in this profession cause she has the heart that's needed to do the job right and take care of these babies just like she does our own. She almost turned this job down in the beginning cause we lost our first baby due to a miscarriage just a couple months prior of her being offered the job in the NICU. I think that us experiencing losing our first baby also has made her try to help out more and also go out of her way more to comfort these babies like we would've wanted our own taken care of if it would've been in the NICU instead of things going wrong during the pregnancy. This being said I believe that this DR. would be doing thing's totally different if he'd experienced what your experiencing right now with Matthew and if he had it more in his heart to do his job instead of doing it for the money. It takes SPECIAL people to be able to do jobs in the medical field that involves in saving lives and comforting people to the fullest that are struggling for their lives. I feel that you are 100% in the right for venting in your last post. I would be doing the same if I was in your shoe's and that's setting that DR. straight. I'll continue to pray for Matthew and the rest of the family. I hope this DR will look at this situation the way it needs to be taking care of and that's do what he said he was going to do and not put off something so serious due to being on vacation of all things. I'll also pray that God touch this DR's heart to understand how serious his job is and hopefully get this situation right and to make more professional decisions and choice's in his future of being a DR. Hang in there and keep us posted.

Scott, it is time to go off..........clean house. My prayers are with you, and you have been strong for everyone this whole time. Sometimes, you have to be "not nice". Take care of Matthew and God will help. Praying hard friend!


Stryker - Give your wife a HUGE hug from my family! There are some out there like her and when we are involved with them (like our HH Nurse for example who is a God send!) we are SO thankful to have them because it seems the majority of folks working in health care are not HAPPY in their job and their lack of happiness/compassion etc can play a HUGE role in the patient and families perspective on how things are going and how they feel at the end of each day.. There were days/nights at Vandy where I KNEW I trusted our nurse and it brought my families stress level down a lot then there were days with those who seemed to be in a "medicated trance state" who never smiled - frowned all day - show 0 compassion and I watched those day/night every minute they were in our room, and honestly caught multiple mistakes before they were made - wrong meds included!
Something has happened in our society of people - it's no longer what YOU can do for the people who employ you and the people you are responsible for caring for/teaching/training etc.. it's all about what WE get in our paycheck at the end of the day and that has made life hard for those of us with choice but to be subjected to these folks actions/care.
Our surgeon did not call me last night but he has a fresh message from me this morning and I will call every few hours today until I get a call back - at least to hear, "I'm working on it" or "go jump in a lake" or something.. I will be determined to get "something" in the form of an answer today.

Prayers going up Scott. You might want to talk to that doctor in Memphis. A shame a doctor makes a commitment and then breaks it. I know you want to go off and you may have to but just remember you are representing Jesus brother. It is easy for me to say huh? Just trying to help keep you together man. You are one strong dude and Matthew...he is just off the charts! I just have this feeling with all the prayers going up and your faithfulness to God WE are going to get through this and it will make us all stronger! Going to my knees in just a few minutes to lift you all in prayer. Hang tough my friend!

Tom


PMT - You hit the nail on the head however there are a ton of variables there too which is why we've held off on visit #1 but my plan today is to get "some" form of answer from Vandy. If I dont like the "answer" I already feel sure I can see his Dr in Memphis next week - have already been talking with his staff.

Problem there is a "prosthetic exchange" between hospitals would never happen so I have a feeling that changing hospitals at this point in the process will extend the surgical time anyway + take a situation following infection to a hospital who's not been a part of the "mess" however if it's to be extended anyway - wife and I decided last night that was a sign that God was ready for us to go elsewhere and that would be our next move.

We have not even told Matthew. He is SO stressed about having to sit in the house for 6 more weeks now that I dont have the heart to tell him it "could" be 10 weeks until I know it's TIME to tell him..

Praising God for my friends here on TnDeer, my father-in-law who is putting his retirement on-hold and staying with my son 4/5 days a week(!) and for our fanastic Home Health Nurse, as well as Matthew's strength!

Lord, I come before you this morning with a humble and heavy heart, I pray, not for me, but for others, that they may find Your perfect love in their hearts and that Your will be done, here on earth as in heaven. I pray, that Your compassion and wisdom fill up the hearts of those that You have charged with the care of, not just Matthew, but of the entire Seager family. We pray that all that have been touched by this ongoing battle find the strength and love of Christ to keep moving forward, so that in the end all can profess the greatness of Your love. May the Holy Spirit fill hearts of this Doctor and others that they may see the necessity of rearranging their schedules at this critical time in Matthew's care. In Jesus' name we pray.

Amen

Knowing we STILL have to beat the infection coming back and knowing our surgeon STILL has to take the infection folks recommedations into consideration following coming off the the IV ABX on 3/18 - and following my 2 messages, my wife was approached with a date by the "scheduler" at Vandy of 4/11 versus 5/14 just a few minutes ago..

It's on the books now but HIGHLY tentative since the Infection Folks and surgeon would have to discuss and consider any added risk of infection coming back having a window of regrowth narrowed down to 24 days versus the initial recommended 4 weeks or 28 days.

Anyway, long story short - They are listening and trying to work this out. As serious of a surgery as this is, it's miniscule in comparison to what he's had done already so we also opened the door to a recommendation from them on who is the next most highly capabale Nuero surgeon to replace this prosthetic since our guy is booked up the week it was suppose to happen - wk 4 following IV ABX ending.

For the moment, they are trying to work with us so I am surely praising God for that!

Praising God for a good day & a tough kid!

Been a ROUGH day today.. Dont think he's kept ANY food down today.

This is the sickest he's been at home so far.. SO many multiple issues that until we get off of the IV ABX and begin eliminating some possible sources of nausea/vomiting etc they wont even give an educated guess as to what's going on....

Praying for a better day Saturday!

As always - Thanks to all of you for the prayers and God Bless!

Matthew had a very good weekend compared to all the most recent. Saturday he was out and about most all of the daylight hours and I guess it wore him out as he slept until noon yesterday. We had 2-days with no sick spells..

My wife had to travel for her job some today however it was only to work in another office off-site and is in the town where her parents live so she's working and Matthew is spending time with his grandparents. He did have a sick spell this morning and my wife offered to stay home - he said, "Nope, we're going - I'm fine" so he snapped out of the sickness pretty qucik and moved on with the day!

Praising God for a wonderful weekend with my family and a very good weekend for Matthew!

Thanks to ALL!

He had a decent day yesterday but he's really scared about this hydrocephalus thing and the chance of 2 surgeries now instead of one.. Seemed to weigh heavy on him yesterday as he was asking more questions than usual.

Next Monday is when they'll pull his PICC line for the IV ABX so Kim and I will be watching him VERY close to make sure this infection does not come back for a few weeks. This SuperBug took nearly 20,000 lives in the US alone last year so we'll be keeping a close eye on him for a while after we come off the meds.

Praising God for being one more day closer to putting this situation behind us.

Thanks folks!! Matthew had a good day yesterday.. He and his grandfather went out to eat lunch - no sick spells at all.

His surgeon called me last night and talked a good while. He's leaning towards a 4/23 - 4/25 surgical date to get closer to a 6-week window off of ABX with no infection before going back in but we will finalize the date on our visit next Monday.

Praising God for another good day!

Matthew, I don't know if your dad shows all these posts or not, but I can assure you that this is NOT the only place on the web and around the country/world where folks have your name, your life and your future in their hearts, on the lips and lifted up to the Almighty Himself.

Son, you hang in there, stay strong, God has something amazing and wonderful planned for you, while we don't know what that is yet, you can bet it's glorious.

Because that is how HE rolls!

Met Brandon (aka DODGEMAN on TnDeer) today to do some computer trading and he brought Matthew this fine looking cake! Matthew was gone to Dyersburg with his grandfather so I thought the LEAST I could do was take a picture of what it looked like BEFORE I cut it at lunch and had me some Choc Cake! \:D

All I can say for the moment is if you are heading towards Dburg and are a fan of Choc Cake get a hold of Dodgeman!! Awesome!!!

I "think" Matthew's spirits were a step above anything I've seen since this all began - yesterday & last night. Having the night before to actually go out and eat without Mom and Dad watching over him had to be a relief in itself..

He made my wife cry yesterday.. She was telling him how blessed he was to have such a great grandfather who stays with him almost every day. He responsded and said, "yep, but I don't know what I'd do without my Mom & Dad helping me get through this every single day for 4 yrs and I love them more than they'll ever know"..

While I know God has a Plan and sometimes those plans are not what we are praying for - in my list of prayers, I've been praying for full/total healing for Matthew lately instead of specific issue after issue and just leaving it up to God since He knows far better what's going on than I do or than any Dr does.. All I can say is that it's been about 4 days since I changed my thoughts/prayers on this and Matthew has had a really blessed week!

Also had my 16 yr old tell us Tuesday night that he feels totally neglected, in so many words.. After 4 yrs of Matthew's situation, he's almost exactly right! I do hunt with him and have the intention to buy a boat and start fishing with him since he LOVES to hunt/fish however on a daily basis my wife and I are totally engulfed with Matthew/Work... While I already Knew this - it hit my heart like a ton of bricks to hear it from him and he said he understood but still felt really left out.

Needless to say I'll be working on resolving that issue ASAP! Looking for a 16/48 etc aluminum boat setup as we speak. We have some decent fishing spots within 20 minutes of the house or less so he and I are about to undertake some serious fishing as soon as I can find a decent deal!!

Praising God for ALL of my families blessings - including and never overlooking our Prayer Warriors on TnDeer!!!!

Hello Jacob, hang in there Son. Been a long trip and still not there yet but sounds to me like you been doing the right thing. It ain't always easy and ain't always fun. From where I sit you're one tough young man. Trust your Dad and Mom and keep that line of trust open. There are an awful lot of folks who wonder at how your Family keeps it together and you have proven you are a big part of that Family. I salute you.

Not a beauty queen but as of today she's ours and will be fine for fishing our local watershed lakes!

Cant wait to get #'s on this thing and get it wet!

Jacob has fished a local pond here 2 days in a row.. Catching some nice crappie! He's pretty hyped up about the boat - which is EXACTLY what I was hoping for! Hoping that about 8 weeks from now we can put Matthew in there with us!!

Praising God for another good day!

Yessirree, wear them out and, uh, uh, throw some in water and freeze them up, I can't get by for awhile. Okay, sorry, Have to admit, I do like the way crappie taste. We have been having real success on crappie with the smallest swimbaits in just about any color.

You guys have a blast. My money is on Jacob for First, last, and most.

Really glad to hear another good day, Praise God, we give you you thanks.

Spent the day at Vandy today as planned. Visits all went well - surgery is scheduled for 4/11/12. His blood work #'s all look well enough that they believe a 3 week wait following ending IV ABX today is plenty. Looking forward to getting Matthew straightened out but can't say I'm not worried about the infection / surgery etc a little more than normal... Putting it in Gods hands for sure!!

Thanks to all of you for the continued prayers!

Jacob has fished a local pond here 2 days in a row.. Catching some nice crappie! He's pretty hyped up about the boat - which is EXACTLY what I was hoping for! Hoping that about 8 weeks from now we can put Matthew in there with us!!

Praising God for another good day!


best of luck with everything, still keeping you in thoughts and prayers

Thanks for reminding me Ferg \:\) I should be updating on the GOOD as much or even more than on the BAD ;\)

Praising God for a very good week so far! No sick spells since coming off of the IV meds - IV meds were one of about 5 things that could have been causing it and by far the most preferred to be the culprit..

LOTS of other ppl and situations coming straight from the ppl and posts on TnDeer are on my daily prayer list!

Praising God for bringing me to this site as you guys have helped me through some VERY trying times!

Thanks to each and every one of you and God Bless!
