(Almost) Homeward Bound

We managed to make it into surgery this afternoon at 3:00. We didn't make it back to our room unitl 8:00. Too late in the day for discharge tonight, so we are planning an early morning escape and then dashing to the airport for our 11:20 flight.

Our surgery was much longer than it should have been. Sam has developed some narrowing in his veins (scar tissue) from the previous lines that he has had and they had a very difficult placing the new line.

On the bright side, we hated the placement of the line that was just removed and the new one is in a much better place. We also went up a size and does not have the skinny, easily broken part (TPN parents will understand). The new line was also placed deeper to allow for Sam to grow for a few years without the need for another new line as long as we can stay infection free.

Once we are home I will update with new pictures and more seatil about the last month.
