Goddess decided to do us a favor for a change…


Tonight, that problematic central line just fell out. Never mind that it was sutured in place. Yes, one suture came out a couple of nights ago. But the other one was still in place. No bleeding, no problems. Just came out. So the infection source is gone.

They had to put in a regular IV into each arm to continue the IV antibiotics and meds. For the next 24 hours, there will be no TPN. That’s the biggest negative to this highly unexpected outcome. Barbara will be going to Methodist at 7:15 am on Monday to get a new central line inserted for the long term requirements until we can finally get the surgery she needs.
