Charlie is bright eyed and playful this morning. He loves mornings! He is so strong and rolling all over the place to get to his toys. He loves to grab his toys and put them in his mouth. No teeth yet, but they are knockin’. The decision was made to take out Charlie’s Broviac central line in the OR and place a new PICC line until we can place a new Broviac central line in about 10 days. His line seemed to be holding onto some bacteria and had already been repaired twice. We felt it was too compromised to go home with as his nutrition depends on it. If the blood cultures they draw after the placement are negative at 48 hours (Sunday evening) then we can go home on Monday.
PLEASE PRAY FOR: SUCCESSFUL PROCEDURE; NO SIDE EFFECTS FROM ANESTHESIA; NEGATIVE CULTURE RESULTS FOR INFECTION POST-OP; PROTECTION FOR CHARLIE; MONDAY HOME!
Lamentations 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
