We are running out of tricks

So, we are using our "bag of tricks" and running out of tricks. We have 2 left...we are using 1 of 2 tricks now. If this doesn't work he will go on an Ecmo machine, it is a lung bypass machine. It is kind of like what they use for a heart, but this one is for the lungs. Basically this machine will clear his blood & oxygenate it too. It has a ton of risks, but we are getting to the point that
this is it. The nurses say there are tons of kids that are on it & do fine. There are some that have bad side effects. This is the decision we have made, to go ahead with this if the current treatment doesn't work. Ugh, we will just take the odds he will come out fine. No guarantees, but it is hope. It is going to be a long night, keep those prayers coming :)
