Seems that Noah already had it all figured out and just wanted to remind everyone around here that he calls the shots! Around noon today, Noah's jugular central line came out. I'm not exactly sure what happened, whether he pulled it or not, but suddenly, there it was...on the floor! So our surgeon was called and Noah was put on the emergency OR slate for today. He went to the OR around 5:30pm and just after 9pm had a new central line, stoma revision and a skin biopsy done. He is now in PICU to be monitored more closely overnight, but everything went really well. He is extubated and he has his morphine infusion back, so he's a sleepy little guy. He's in the same room he was in a couple of weeks ago, and it really brings back the reality of everything he went through. I wasn't quite ready for all this today, but I can breathe a sigh of relief now that it's all over and we are one big step closer to going home!
