Ethan Update – A Flicker of Light at the End of the Tunnel

Ethan Update – A Flicker of Light at the End of the Tunnel

Ethan is finishing Day 11 of his most recent hospitalization. The severe pain has been successfully managed and he is weaning off the pain med combination that delivered the much-needed relief. As good as this news is, there are challenges still ahead before discharge. Ethan needs to prove he can receive nutrition and hydration through his GI System – typically not an easy task for him. The other challenge is more mental. Given we do not know exactly what caused Ethan’s severe pain event on April 27, we cannot be confident it will not return. Add this to a long list of potential issues that could send Ethan back to the hospital at any time. Not an easy way to live for Ethan or for us.
This will be a very busy week – Ethan will remain at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital until he demonstrates GI success, Alexia will pick up Zakary who is finishing his sophomore year at Washington University in St. Louis, and Scott and Elyse will try to have a typical/not-typical week at home. We will all juggle our commitments at work, home and the hospital.
With so many unknowns, this current admission has been very challenging emotionally. Not understanding the source of Ethan’s severe pain is scary. It creates a lot of worry. As of today, Ethan has spent a total of 373 days in the hospital, and counting, since his injury on June 29, 2013…that’s 26.5%, a statistic that is unimaginable!
We hope the flicker of light we see grows stronger this week. We all need Ethan to get well and come home.
Alexia and Scott

    Dear Alexia, Scott and children,

    I am following your updates and feel your pain but also admire your strength and join in your hope.

    My partner, Eli, suffered a stroke 2 months ago. He returned home and is doing therapies at Toronto rehab. The progress is steady but slow but we hope for full recovery. His son found this link of a hospital in Israel and I want to share it with you

    Wishing Ethan speedy recovery and return home,

    Love Eva, Eli and family

  • Lyn and Harry says

    We have never met but are in the same family. The GUCI family. When we pass the NW corner of I-465, we think of your family. When there is thunder in the distance, we think of your family. We cannot change what was but what is has changed so many. May G-d guide the caretakers to find the source of the pain and may you continue to have hope. 

  • Sonya says

    Tell Ethan we miss him at morning movement and hope to see him soon. 

  • Michal says

    Refuah shelema Amen
