New Central Line

Aidyn now has a new central line. I always thought if he got a new central line it would be because of a line infection... not because of the line creeping out. We'll never know how it happened, but it sure makes me more paranoid about handling it.

Aidyn did very well in surgery. He was an add on so we had to wait more than a day in the hospital. Poor Aidyn was hungry and I was tired. Thursday afternoon Aidyn was in surgery. The surgeon spent 45 minutes just accessing a branch off of larger vein in order to avoid using a large vein. It would have been much faster and easier, but it meant a large vein wouldn't be compromised. I waited for 2 hours, but luckily I had company. Aidyn's Early Intervention therapist came for support, and she even missed dinner at home to stay with Aidyn post recovery so I could grab dinner. She was so nice. I am very proud of how well Aidyn has recovered. He wasn't even given pain medication afterward. We went home Friday early afternoon.

The dietian has given Aidyn the go ahead to increase feeds a little. He now gets 20 cc's twice a day and 15 cc's four times a day. Hopefully his output won't increase too much. Oh, and Aidyn weighed 3.9 kg, or 8.58 lbs. He's growing well. His PN volume has now gone up, too. Way to go Aidyn!
