I have not been able to reach Carrie (cell phones are not allowed in the Critical Care Unit) but I was able to speak with my other sister, Becky. She has given me the following update:
It was during the bronchoscopy procedure that Larry had the major bleed and coded.
He was "down" for 20 minutes.
They were able to stabilize him so that they could perform surgery to cauterize the artery causing the bleeding.
Larry was participating in a clinical trial and this type of bleed is a rare complication of the experimental medication he was on.
He survived the surgery but is unresponsive. They fear brain damage. I do not know any results of CT scans/MRI's or what the neurologist's findings are.
So what this means is that we are now praying for a Christmas miracle. Thank you all for being with me and my family as we deal with the crisis at hand. God bless you all.
