Update Tonight on Ethan

Hello all! This is Mandy typing this update...Joye just called and gave me some more details and asked if I would type up a blog post because she just can't right now.

As soon as Joye hit publish on the last post Ethan's heart stopped. His heart stopped, he stopped breathing, and he coded. Joye said tons of people rushed into his room and started doing chest compressions and working on their little boy. She said it was all surreal and she just went out into the hallway and basically collapsed.

So now they are back in ICU and he is re-intubated. His heart is beating about 110-120 beats per minute but it is not pumping blood correctly through his little body. It is not functioning like it should. His doctor has been called and he is on his way up. They are planning to decide if they should put Ethan on an ECMO machine. This is basically a heart-lung bypass machine that would help give his heart a break.

They definitely think all of this is related to his issues from earlier today but there are a lot of questions of "why" right now.

That is about all they know. PLEASE keep praying for Ethan, Joye and Jeramie. They really need it tonight.

I will update or they will when they know more information.
