ATLANTA — There has been a setback for in the treatment of Tripp Halstead, the 2-year-old boy injured by a fallen tree limb at a Winder daycare facility two weeks ago.
Fox 5 News reported this morning that doctors had to place a breathing tube back in the infant after he had an adverse reaction to medication.
On Friday, Tripp’s grandfather, Larry Hughes, told FOX 5′s Chris Shaw doctors at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston were talking about rehab for the toddler. Now they’re talking about regrouping.
Tripp’s mother Stacy Halstead wrote on her Facebook account yesterday, “I wasn’t sure it could get much worse, but little did I know that it can. Everything was good last night, very peaceful when I noticed the nurse staring him down, I looked and couldn’t see him breathing normally, so she jumped into action and within seconds we had 12 staff members at his side.”
In addition to a serious brain injury, Tripp suffers from a collapsed lung.
The Halstead family believes that the overwhelming wave of support and prayers, have helped in their son’s recovery.
