Vinny Update

Tweet This

At 11:00 p.m. last night Vinny and I were transported from our local ER, via ambulance to University of California, San Francisco Children's Hospital.

There's an absess at the surgical site, and that thing is gynormous. So not yay. Anyways, it has to be drained. Oh my word.

We are waiting for the drain to be put in, basically it will be done by a Pediatric Interventionist Radiologist using, either, ultrasound or CT scan as their surgical GPS. We are praying for the ultrasound navigation system, as it is sans radiation. We will see.

We are hoping, wishing and praying this all happens this morning, since Vinny hasn't eaten since 11 a.m. yesterday.

His pain is fairly low, "about a three," says Vinny. Thank you everyone for all your thoughts, prayers, love and help. As my friend says, "it takes a village."

Gio is being well taken care of by ANGELS, and is having the time of his life, I'm sure. It's a relief to know so many people are looking after him. Such. A. Relief. Thanks be to Angels. But we miss him.

Keep praying please. Thank you <3

Prayers zinging your way! We wish you all the best, and we hope it is resolved completely and quickly. I am also sending a bit of relaxation juju your way...this is when you'll need it most. Are you breathing?
