It's eleven o'clock and Gavin just got back from the OR. The line is out and Dr. Katz was able to place a fem line without any problem. Gavin had a terrible time waking up after the surgery. He must have had increased secretions from the breathing tube which caused horrible retching and lots of drainage out his belly. He is finally settled and I think he is about to fall asleep.
Now we just wait.
I feel like waiting is all we do these days. Any parent of a chronically ill child knows that the worst part of hospital life is the hurry up and wait epidemic.
