My 16yr. old son is in ICU this morning. He was hospitalized yesterday, after he failed to respond to medication for a throat infection. A CT scan showed an absess in his throat.
He had emergency surgery this morning at 3:00am. He is in ICU because his throat is so swollen, they can't risk his airway closing back up. He will be in ICU, very sedated, for a few days to allow his throat to start healing, before they can remove the breathing tube. This has been very scary, and he isn't in the clear yet.
Please say a prayer for my son.
