Nicholas' discharge is being postponed for a little while. He had a bad spell during his MRI and coded. He stopped breathing and his heart stopped. They were able to bring him back with oxygen and chest compressions. This was a reaction to the Chlorohydrate they gave him to sedate him during the MRI. He got so relaxed he forgot to breathe. They are going to ask the Neurosurgeon if he absolutely needs the MRI before discharge. If he does, they will have to decide if they will use Chlorohydrate again or if they can come up with a different drug to use. Once they got him back he was fine and has been fine all day. They took 2 blood gases and those were fine and he is already back to 1/4 liter of oxygen. They also did a CBC but don't feel that it will show anything wrong. So now it will probably be next week before he is home. On a better note, his eyes look good and the ROP is still regressing. I forgot to bring the camera so no new picture.
