September 17, 2008

Good morning all! Haven't we been blessed with beautiful weather lately? Hope most of you have had a chance to enjoy it!

So when we last left you.. they were trying to get a new PIC line in Seth so they could remove his central line in his neck (they do NOT want a clot in one of those upper extremity areas, that blood needs to be able to travel to his lungs). That was unsuccessful. The end decision was to put him on heparin to avoid a blood clot in that central line. They were hoping to avoid peripheral lines (regular ivs) due to the amount of meds, etc he's taking in and the shape of his veins.

So I called up this am to see how his night went. Overall, it went well. However, that central line they were trying to get out yesterday and ended up leaving in? Yeah, it started to leak. Now, according to his nurse Jake he's "an IV junkyard". Seth has an IV in both hands and feet. Please pray for those to hold up and do the job. For Seth's lungs & respiration to be well enough for him to get off the ventilator SOON (today would be good!). For his doctors & nurses and peace for our family.

Thanks again for all your support. We couldn't do it without God and those of you loving us in His name sure help us to feel His presence! Thanks SO much!
