2:00 pm

Just letting everyone know the picc insertion is set for 2 pm.... :) I'll come back after to let you know how it went.

Okay...I'm terrible....here I am the day after updating you all.... truth is it was a long picc insertion....that almost didn't happen because Yale's vessels are so stenoic...the doctor actually used the words "fluke" that it got in.... :) damn Yale and his tiny veins...LOL...

so Yale was sedated with fentanyl... so he didn't notice the multiple pokes or how long he was gone for... but they got in in and he was fine! which is what matters now.... except right now they are culturing everything they can think of because he's spiked a fever... My guess....it'll be urine infection like he had in the CCU that they only treated for 7 days not 10...*shrug* at least thats what I hope it is...:)

so Yale is well...relatively....and his grandma is coming tomorrow for the weekend.... so it should be a great time!
Again....so sorry I was so late updating.... but Yale sailed through the picc insertion.... Thankfully!

Being an ICU nurse and reading your blog is heartwrenching...what you and your family are going through is unbelievable. You sound like you know exactly what is going on, and good for you! Being informed is such a powerful thing when it comes to your baby's health. I hope Yale continues to be a fighter. Good luck, sending lots of prayers, love and good wishes to you and your family. God bless :)

We are praying for Yale and are very glad to hear that the picc line went in much better this time. Yale is such a trooper. When he is 16 and rebelling you will have to remember the fighting spirit he has. It is what is getting him through this now (combined with the love and support of his friends and family), so when it shows up later, you almost have to smile about it! :)

I will keep checking in! Take care Tanna!!!!! You are doing a great job!!!
