Bad Day

Today did not start well and really hasn't gotten much better as the day went on.

We have not been able to maintain Sam's blood sugar using his temporary IV that was placed.  He just simply requires too much sugar.  For the last six hours we have watched his glucose hover in the 30's no matter what we have done to try to raise it.  Therefore they are going to take Sam into surgery tonight, remove his old port, and put in a larger line.

The surgeon is on his way up to talk to me and it will be the same surgeon from this morning that I did not agree with.  I am not sure that I want Sam to have a PICC line in his arm for the next several weeks or months, and I do not like where he wants to place a new central line for Sam.

I will update again once we are out of recovery later tonight.
