On Thursday August 4th, Melinda and her husband found their son Finn(2 years old) unresponsive. The doctors thought he was having a febrile seizure and he was moved to the childeren's hospital. The spinal tap came back negative for menegitis, he did not have a stroke and the MRI looked good, the diagnosis then was thought to be something called Todd’s Palsy and he would make a full recovery (he does not have movement on his left side and is blind in the left eye) Later in the week Finn had a major setback, the doctors could not control his seizures, they tried everything and finally decided to put Finn in a medically induced coma because the right side of his brain was so swollen from the seizing.
This summer has been filled with extreme highs and lows for this young family. On July 4th Finn became a big brother when he welcomed home his little sister Francesca into their family.  Shortly after the excitement of bringing their little girl home from the hospital, they are faced with Finn's disheartening condition and the reality of significant medical bills, and caring for a newborn. Please consider making a donation to help this family, they truly appreciate it! Thank you very much.

Finn is awake!! He is doing great so far, still no seizures, but he is still fighting a temperature and now has pneumonia (probably from being intubated). The plan is to stay in the PICU for about a week for him to be monitored, then we will move into the Therapy inpatient area of the hospital to try to regain function of his left side.

From Melinda and Micah-

We still do not have an official diagnosis, but Finn is showing signs of improvement. His most recent MRI shows less edema, he has not had any seizures since 8/11. The plan is to extubate (pull the breathing tube) today or tomorrow depending on his breathing. We are excited to hear his little voice!
