Samantha now has a PICC line. It’s a catheter that runs up to the entrance of her superior vena cava down her arm and out like the tip of an IV line. When your getting a lot of IV meds and blood draws, it kind of makes sense. They can just come up to the line and put in or pull out what they need. Her little veins were dry and the bottom of her feet have been ravaged due to pokes. It’s unnerving to think that that this line runs all the way up to her heart….CRAZY! Since we have the line in, the specialist have made a ‘wish-list’ of the blood tests that need to be run while were here. I’m going to buy a bunch of vampire fangs and start handing them out.
Each day is getting better. We usually have a couple periods of high temps and agitation but nothing too long. Everything is kind of on hold for the weekend and we will reconvene with the specialists on Monday.
Bart came down last night and we are spending a lovely weekend together as a family on the 8th floor. I’m catching up on my Disney flicks.
Hope you all are well!
