Hello everyone,

I went to see Mitch today w/ Russ, and he's not in good shape. He's still in ICU and has been put into an induced coma to help keep him from moving around. Your prayers and positive thoughts are definitely still needed. He can have vistors other than immediate family as long as it's not too disturbing to him or the other patients in the ICU. You can also send him a message via the hospital's free CareGram service: http://www.harthosp.com/PatientVisitors/caregram/default.aspx. There were several print outs hanging in the room so the staff is definitely passing them along to him.

 

I spoke w/ the intern, and she gave me the following info:

- When he was first brought in, Mitch had a torn artery in his abdomen that they surgically repaired.

- He was beginning to recover, but they found he was still bleeding internally from his spleen, which they have now surgically removed.

- All the surgeries went well except that he's now fighting an infection.

- In order to keep him from moving around and disrupting the surgery along w/ making sure he's resting and able to fight the infection, he's been put into an induced coma. As his fever goes down, they'll begin to slowly bring him back.

- Because of the induced coma, he'll need extra recovery time and perhaps some physical therapy because of mucsle weakness. 

- Saving the good news for last...Even though he's pretty bruised up, Mitch doesn't have any head injuries or broken bones.

 

The main focus is getting rid of the infection now. We're all thinking of him and sending our best wishes...

 

Regards,

Carrie
