October 11, 2011

Jackson had his infected central line removed today.  They did not replace it though.  They put what is called a PIC line in his foot.  It is kind of like an IV but it goes in deeper.  They are using it to give him antibiotics.  They are trying to make some decisions as far as what to do next.  They can either wait until his counts come back up, and then put the central line in OR they can leave it out until his next chemo treatment and then put it in.  There has also been some talk about a temporary line.  I have no idea what that is.  Unfortunately all the doctors come around to see Jackson in the morning when Erik and I at work and by the time we get to the hospital they are gone for the day.  The information we get is second hand from the nurses.  (very frustrating)  I am thankful that he did well today during his surgery and that he ate well the rest of the day AND kept it down. :-)  We don't know at this point when he will be able to come home.  Thank you for your continued prayers!
