First of all thank you all so much for all your sweet and uplifting words. Some of you asked me how it happened, so let me first explain that. Anthony was playing on the sidewalk with two friends and they were throwing water balloons to each other. Anthony sat on the curb between two parked cars when his friend wanted to trow a big water balloon at him. So he jumped up and ran away and this is when the car came in that hit him. the rest of the story see previous post.
last night was horrible, Anthony was in a lot of pain and at 3 in the morning the doctor came to see what it was. he wasn't sure. It could be just wound pain or loge syndrome, he gave him some morphine and said they would be checking things in the morning. Of course I googled loge syndrome and I got so scared reading it, if it isn't diagnosed early it could mean he could lose his leg in the end. I think I slept for max. 2 hours last night. I was so sad and afraid for my son. Luckily in the morning after new medication he felt fine. The doctor came and his toes looked better than a couple of hours before and his pain was gone. They did decided he would get a morphine pump that he could use when the pain was too much, but so far he hasn;t used it. Hopefully this means we will have a good night tonight. They didn't look at his wound yet, thought it would be too early for that since he is now doing a lot better with pain and such. probably in a few days. We will be here for at least after the weekend I am afraid.
Got my internet connection also today so I thought I could watch a movie(sex in the city 2) tonight while anthony is asleep, because he sleeps through anything with sound, but we got a new kid on the room so the nurse said at 7, lights out, sleeping time!.....EXCUSE ME?!! I have no headphone so I am now sitting at the table in the dark typing this while it is 9.15, ugh.
I also was asked by a couple of people what the address of the hospital and his roomnr etc was so they could send him a card or such, so here you go:
Medisch Centrum Alkmaar
1815 JD Alkmaar
Tav: Anthony Delis
People from out of The Netherlands that want to send a card can email me for my home address, this way I am sure he will recieve it even after he is home. He will LOVE to receive post.
