Jordan was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 in 2017. During his stay at Swedish Hospital they determined he was Diabetes Type 1. He contracted Influenza A-January 2018. He was hospitalized in Bellingham for three days because of the complications of Influenza A and Diabetes.
Once released from the hospital within days Jordan returned to the hospital because he couldn’t breathe. The hospital kept him overnight and around 3 AM Jordan (stopped breathing) coded. The nurses performed CPR resuscitating and intubated him. After three days in ICU in Bellingham he was transferred to ICU at Swedish Hospital. After a scoping procedure with four Specialists the surgeons reported they had never seen this before. An 1 inch by 1 inch section of Jordan’s trachea had died.
After treating him for weeks with antifungal and anti-biotics the Specialists chose to surgically remove the dead section of Jordan’s trachea out. Jordan is one of six people known to have had this trachea issue. The doctors are interested in doing a case study on him.
Jordan spent more than six weeks in the hospital. He is now home. He is on an IV drip with antibiotics for several hours a day. He has not been able to work and will not be able to work for an unknown amount of time. Although his job is waiting for him.
The medical bills are coming in.
In addition they are in the process of moving. They were given notice in January from their landlord to be moved the end of January. This was unfeasible because Jordan was in ICU at that time. They now need to be out by April 1. There are five children at home. They have not found a place to live to date.
