We have a plan…

P8276608

Dr R came in this morning and made a comment about our very eventful weekend.  He then said that it was time, time to schedule her for a central line placement.  We are going to be placing a Broviac double lumen central line because it is what Lucy needs.  We are waiting to hear from the OR to see if we can get an add on OR time slot today.  I am not holding my breath that this will happen today, I am feeling more like it will happen tomorrow.  None the less we have stopped all J-tube feeds just in case we do get a slot today.  Our social worker has already begun the process of getting the ball rolling to get us all of the necessary equipment to care for and bring Lucy home. 

I agree with Dr R, it is time…

I'm so happy to see that you have a plan! Maggie had the broviac double lumen and we liked it so much more than the PICC. Hopefully it will all work out for you guys and you can get her home soon!!

Double Lumen Broviac is what Eithene has! If you have any questions just let me know! Same for TPN, you'll be an expert in no time, but if you have any questions, just post them or email me....
