Irish Princess's blog: "Kyle - my brother"

Well I came back to PA today after spending another week in Columbus with my family. As of when I left this morning, Kyle is completely off the sedative drip and is on Methadone and Valium that they are injecting straight into his feeding tube (stomach absorbs more than IV) he opened his eyes a few times but there is no recognition or anything really, it's like the old saying, the lights are on but no one is home, at least for now... They were able to get his brain pressure stabilized enough that they pulled the drain into his brain out last night.  He's been off and on the vent to help him breathe thru his tracheotomy. The social worker got ahold of my sister in law yesterday and informed her they want to move him to another facility, that OSU is too costly, yet it's where he needs to be, with the best docs, surgeons and nurses caring for him. So at this point we don't know if it really is the cost or if they don't have any hopes of him recovering from this, we are told they want him moved by weeks end. 2 facilities are nothing more than nursing homes and 1 is a "hospital" a term I use loosely in this case. It's still a day by day marathon at this point, no real new info  just hanging on for as long as I can before I lose my marbles. Thank you for all the prayers, they are certainly appreciated and needed right now. And especially thank you to the few that have checked in on me to make sure I'm holding up ok.
