The new Broviac (IV line)

Summer's surgery went without a hitch this morning. They came and got her at 9 AM and she was back in her room by 11:30. The surgeon tried to thread the new line through the old vein, but was unable to get the wire (that would hold it open) to make it through. The new licne is in a new vein, which means another small scar on her neck, and comes out just over her left chest muscle. This means we added 2 new scars to her count...making a total of 7. The good thing about the scars though, is that they will dissipate as she grows...most of them will be almost unnoticeable :)

We will take her home tonight after a few hours of monitoring by the nurses, we start up her feeds, and the Huskie's game traffic is gone...when there is a game, since we have to drive around Lk. Washington in front of the stadium to get to the freeways, they block off roads and it can take an hour just to go through 3 or 4 traffic lights! I got stuck in this traffic once...not pretty!

We will go home to a quiet house (always my wish, never granted!) since my other 3 kids will be at my sis-in-law's house for the night :) So glad this finally got taken care of...and it went well :)
