No Central line...

-8279-8296

Gavin continues to have a consistent fever so they had to cancel the central line placement. All cultures are negative so we are thinking this is either viral with no symptoms or inflammation, which Gavin tends to struggle with. Gavin's Immunoglobulins are very low so He will be receiving a large dose of IVIG and then we are going home.

Did you catch that? We are going home! Please say some serious prayers that this PICC line holds up. For most people if they loose the PICC it's not that big of a deal but it is literally Gavin's life line. He cannot maintain his blood glucose levels without a continuous infusion of high dextrose. I think he will do fine as we have him in little arm restraints to prevent pulling.

I am so stinkin' happy to be going home.

So Happy.
