This is my baby brother, Khai Hoàng (Ty). On the 9th July, he was admitted to the hospital for aspiration pneumonia. There is no definite outcome for his condition. He is currently kept under sedation in order for his lungs to heal. He has develop sepsis and there is no positive identification of the bacteria that has caused this.
We're trying to collect money in order to help cover wages loss due to him being hospitalized, also to help his wife not have to worry about deciding whether to work or stay in the hospital with him. This would also allow her to be able to split some time between being with him in the hospital and being with their 2 daughters because they miss her and him very much.
Pulmonologist said lungs are improving and stable, kidney improving and stable, his chart shows cardiac improvement... but the low grade fever of unknown origin and the vascular issue with his feet also unknown... those are the main concerns right now. He is dropped to 60% on ventilator and he is still holding good blood O2. He was also transferred to UAB hospital from St. Vincent.
Ty was put on dialysis because his kidneys are not working to their full capacity at the moment. He's able to urinate, however it's pretty restricted and he's retaining a lot of fluid. It's also helping control his fever that has been averaging 102+ since he was admitted. With the dialysis machine, his average temp is around 99.
