Love for Logan

Love for Logan

Personal message

17 August 2019 

 

Chanie was busy reading by the pool, Chris was busy working around the house and the kids were playing outside.

It is my understanding that Logan somehow got a hold of the Petrol meant for the lawnmower.

Chanie was still busy reading when she felt a sudden blast of heat behind her and then heard Logan cry. This was when she realized he was on fire.

They reacted immediately by dunking Logan in the pool. 

They then drove him to a nearby hospital where he was airlifted to Garden City.

 

It was there that they realized his one lung wasn’t functioning. He was then put on a ventilator to assist with breathing and they immediately started antibiotic treatment for any possible infections.

 

A day later Logans’ blood pressure sky rocketed and he started swelling considerably. He also hadn’t passed urine.

 

For fear of further damage to the lung, heart as well as kidneys, Doctors decided on a different antibiotic treatment.

 

Though Logan’s blood pressure came down, his lung had completely collapsed and the swelling wasn’t coming down either.

 

On Friday the 23rd of August Logan took a sudden turn for the worst. They needed to do an emergency operation to assist with oxygen, called an ECMO procedure. Though Logan was in bad shape and not actually ‘ready’ for an operation, they had no choice and he was rushed to theatre. 

 

The news came back that the operation was a success, although they had to take a different route because they couldn’t get the pipe through the top of his heart.

 

On the 25th of August Logan’s swelling had gone down considerably, Doctors were happy with his lungs (although the one is still collapsed and not functioning, the other wasn’t showing signs of further strain), his kidneys were functioning well and his heart was okay. Logan had also had a peaceful night. 

 

At this point there are many uncertainties: 

 

-          Logan may need to get a new lung, which will be a prosthetic should his lung not recover

-          He will need to go for more skin grafts on his body where the worst burns are (2nd and 4th degree burns)

-          His heart is being  monitored, but currently we don’t know what the future holds

-          His kidneys did not do well through the night, so we’re just waiting to see what happens

 

The main concern at this stage is that Logan will live. That his lungs will fully function, along with his heart and kidneys.
