Caused by abscesses on his lung.
The 1st time the Infectious Diseases team of Doctors here have ever seen this strain of the disease before 😳
Also, one of the most severe cases they’ve ever seen.
RFDS flight to Perth.
Couple of rides in an Ambulance.
A stay in ICU.
2 x ops to insert 2 different drains into his chest cavity.
X-rays, Ultrasounds, CT Scan.
Oxy-Codone, Morphine, Tramadol, Clonadine 😬
Connected to Oxygen 24/7, heart monitors & drips for the last 9 days.
He’s always been the most chilled out, laid back, go-with-the-flow kid.
Watching him in deep distress & riddled with anxiety from being constantly prodded & poked has been the greatest challenge I’ve had to overcome as a Mum.
Being absolutely helpless while your child is in agony 💔
Entrusting an entourage of doctors & nurses with my ‘heart & soul’.
An absolute roller coaster ride 🎢
One I never want to be on again!
Today was the 1st time in 2 weeks we’ve had good news all round.
A breakthrough day 🙌🏼
He’s a long way from being my
healthy, vibrant boy but he will get there.
I’ll be right by his side.
As I have been through this whole ordeal.
It’s a slow recovery.
Still don’t have an end date to our stay here at PCH.
8 weeks of Antibiotics once we’re home.
6 months of recuperation.
He’s got this 💪🏽 #pneumococcal#disease#pneumonia#rfds#royalflyingdoctorservice#ambulance#emergency#hospital#perthchildrenshospital#infectiousdisease#enoughpainmedstokillahorse#hesgotthis#braveboy#stoic#soproudtobehismumma

So after our less than 24hours trip to the ward Lorcan is back in the nicu and back on highflow(which pisses him off and makes him desat low). But it is a catch 22 he does super well on pbf low flow when he’s nice and relaxed but when he cries and doesn’t settle he uses all his reserve and the low flow can’t back up the requirements he needs when he’s upset, so back on low flow... The doctors seem to think it’s the kidney stones AGAIN but won’t do anything about them because with lorcans lungs they don’t think he would do well with the surgery that his lungs wouldn’t cope 😥. So round in circles we go again hoping he passes them or they shrink 😢. I’m sick looking at my baby in constant pain and struggle and his oxygen requirements climbing over his struggle to cope. All we hear is TIME WAIT he needs to GROW. Most annoying 3 words on this journey.. I wish there was something we could do to get rid those stones 😥😢. We’ve been really focusing on Lorcan development and feeding as it’s something I think he needs to learn so they’ve put thickner in my breastmilk and it seems to be really helping him, he is on 20mls on the bottle and the rest down the tube. Me and Ruairi have both done the tube training aswell with the nurses and we’ve been signed off so that’s a good thing to be covered incase we still come home with the NGT but I’m hoping that’s not the case. He’s slept a lot over the past few days poor little man is absolutely exhausted from all the moving around and poking and prodding sometimes having too many eyes on him daily is a good and a bad thing poor child can even have a little cough with out a full set obs being done over it bloods, urine etc etc.. I know it’s precaution but it’s frustrating at the same time... #lorcan#lorcanobrien#littlefierceone#nicujourney#nicujournal#myson#nicu#niculife#24weeker#24weekers#micropreemie#micropreemies#preemie#preemiebaby#preemiestrong#preemiepower#chroniclungdisease#warrior#strong#fighter#perthchildrenshospital#perth

Today’s drop was a special one. Little Sofia and Liam both turn 1 tomorrow and are NICU friends. They (with the help of their wonderful parents) have celebrated this milestone by asking their friends and family to donate to helping little hands to support a nutritious nibbles drop. Mums and dads Christobel and Sean and Karim and Geoff found these drops this time last year to be so helpful. They also made beautiful cards for the beds of current babies! Such a beautiful afternoon with them all.
If you’d like to join Sofia and Liam in celebrating a milestone with helping little hands, we’d love to hear from you 💜🎂🤗 And bumper amounts of baguettes for KEMH and PCH and the nurses station at KEMH this week 🌯🥪🥖
Come and join us at the @brokenhillhotel and you can get your hands on this! 2018 AFL premiers @westcoasteagles kindly donated this Elliot Yeo signed framed picture. Commentators have said it was his goal in the grand final that turned the game around!!
