Ryan Switzer’s son out of surgery, recovering – WPXI


PITTSBURGH – The 9-month-old son of former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Ryan Switzer has finally been released from hospital and is recovering, weeks after starting to bleed and being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Switzer announced the good news on Monday evening, hours after doctors performed another operation on his son, Christian.

Switzerland tweeted on Saturday that Christian was “stable and not actively bleeding”. Further tests were carried out and the doctors found an abnormality on a CT scan.

Christian was transferred from Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte to Children’s Hospital in Boston last week.

Doctors from the UPMC Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh also consulted on the case.

While being treated in Charlotte, Christian underwent blood transfusions, surgery, and spent time in the intensive care unit.

Last week, Switzer tweeted that doctors said Christian had a “vascular abnormality” somewhere in his gastrointestinal tract.

Christian was diagnosed with COVID-19 in early March after waking up in his own blood.
