Happy New Year!

We are starting out the new year on a more positive note. After a frustrating 6 day stay, Noah was discharged this afternoon. The repair kit finally came yesterday, and so last night his line was repaired quite easily. We now have to wait until tomorrow morning for the glue to set before we can try to use it. So we will go back to the day unit tomorrow and try to unclot his line with TPA. Because it has now been clotted almost a week, there is little chance that we will be able to get it working again, but we will give it a try. If we can't get it working, our surgeon will pull the line out tomorrow and we will continue to use the PICC line at home while this site heals. He would then have to go back to the OR for a new line sometime in the next few weeks.

Thanks Hilda and Heather for spending part of the evening with us yesterday and for the goodies! It made New Years Eve much more bearable!!
