My best friends little guy is in Pediatric ICU today after a drowning accident last night. He is 4 years old and his family is going through a lot right now.
Boy nearly drowns at Eagle Island State Park | KTVB.COM | Idaho News

They have had him going through Hyothermic treatment since last night and will continue to do so for 24hrs. So it will be 10pm before any mri or eegs can be done to test brain function.... He was unconscious for roughly 5 minutes.

He was breathing and had a pulse by the time the ambulance got to the park, but it not breathing on his own now. He is in a half-coma state.

Please pray hard for their family... This is so heartbreaking and Its hard not to tear up just thinking of him... I am headed to the Hosp as soon as DBF gets home from work

He is now off the coolant (hypothermic medicine) and they were hoping to have him come off the paralytic and sedative drugs to have him come around on Friday, but as of now they are keeping him on them. There is still too much in his lungs for him to breath on his own.... The paralytic keeps him from fighting the ventilaor they are giving him (the method they are using is a very unnatural way of breathing, and when awake, your body will fight it and in turn, get much less oxygen than what he needs) His heartrate and temps and all that are stable, so that looks good... But we just really dont know anything yet.

So we still wait. Cannot test brain function until he is awake, cannot let him wake up until he can breath. Dr said he thinks he is out of the clear as far as living, but not out of the woods as far as brain damge. They just wont know the extent until testing can be done.
So Sad.

Well I'm glad to hear that he should survive this. I hope that he'll survive with no brain damage either.

Things like this really serve as a reminder that you cannon take your eyes off of children around water even for a minute.

I can't imagine how terrible the waiting must be for his family. Its a small comfort to know that he will survive when you don't know what shape he will be in. Please keep us posted and we'll keep praying.
