It's Monday and we are not going home. Oh well, I've given up on expecting discharge and I'm just letting it surprise me! Today Gavin went down to the OR to have his new central line placed back in his chest. Everything went great. I was sad to see his bare little chest go but I know that this means we are one step closer the H-O-M-E. On the plan for the rest of today is to pull the foley cath and begin the straight caths in 4 hours. If I had it my way I'd keep that foley until we were walking out the door to spare Gavi and his poor little pee-pee from the trauma, but I we don't have a choice. We also will be restarting the Omegaven in a few hours -- yippie!
Tomorrow we will transition Gavin over the rectal Valium and rectal morphine and see if this eases his symptoms of withdraw -- if so then we will go home with these. The drugs are the only thing keeping us here at this point. The doc did throw around a day for discharge but I'm not even going to say it.
