Day 159: Saturday 29/09/2012

Yesterday and today we noticed that Sergio was sleeping much more than usual. He was barely able to keep his eyes open today when he was awake. This is not the usual Sergio behavior. At first we though that it was his new trachea collar that might have tired him out completely. However his body temperature started to rise in the afternoon and he had real difficulty swallowing his secretions. We now believe that he has the flu. It came on so quickly and it really has shook up poor Sergio altogether. I still can’t believe how quickly his condition deteriorated over the space of only a few hours. He was doing absolutely super up to this point. Lets hope that he can get over this flu quickly.

Ayer y hoy nos hemos dado cuenta de que Sergio estaba durmiendo mucho más de lo habitual. Apenas podía mantener los ojos abiertos hoy cuando estaba despierto. Este no es el comportamiento habitual de Sergio. Al principio pensábamos que era el cuello de la tráquea nuevo que podría haberle cansado por completo. Sin embargo, su temperatura corporal comenzó a subir por la tarde y tenía dificultad real para tragar su saliva. Ahora creemos que realmente lo que ha cogido es gripe. Lo ha cogido muy rápido y realmente ha sacudido al pobre Sergio completo. Todavía no puedo creer lo rápido que su condición se ha deteriorado en el espacio de unas pocas horas. Él lo estaba haciendo absolutamente estupendo hasta ahora. Esperemos que pueda superar esta gripe rápidamente.



  1. Hi, Donal and Rosa!
    Still praying for you and the little ones here! Will pray the flu is short lived and received by each of you!
    Blessings, Marae

    • That was to read “NOT be received by each of you”!

      Oh, my!

  2. Donal and Rosa, we want you to know what a blessing your family has been to outs while staying at the Yawkey! Shane enjoyed playing with Tahge and talks of him a lot. Know that we will be holding precious Sergio up in prayer before the Father. Trusting Him for strength for each of you! Blessings, Susie, Tom, and Shane
