Ok...so yesterday was not fun...We were told by the doctor to flush his central lines every other day while he is home. So, last night we got everything out and the first line flushed great...the second line would not flush no matter what we did...so the doctor had told us if we have that problem to call the hospital immediately. When I called I spoke to the Hematology doctor on call and explained to him what was going on. I then asked him if it could wait until Friday at his clinic appointment. (Jackson is not on meds through his central line, so it wasn't an emergency.) He said no you have to come to the ER right away. We arrived at the ER at 8 pm last night. We waited in a room as nurse after nurse after doctor came in spoke a few words and left. Finally at 2 am the nurse came in and said, "the doctor says this can wait until Friday's clinic appointment...WHAT?!?!?!?! Didn't I just ask him that a few hours ago? AHHH...so we arrived home at 3 am. Poor Erik had to go to work on 2 hours of sleep. So, tomorrow we go to our clinic appointment to try and get the central line to work. If they can't get it to work they will have to replace it again. We really don't want that again. Please pray that they will get it to work tomorrow.
