Juliet is definitely looking and feeling better since her surgery on Tuesday night. She has not accumulated the fluid that we expected and has remained on fairly low vent settings. She returned to the OR today for a new central line. Dr. Chahine put a double-lumen Broviac catheter in the same spot where her femoral line was. He did not want to do it on Tuesday night, since there was so much infection. Her blood cultures remained negative, so he took her back down for surgery this afternoon. It only took about an hour and everything went fine. Hopefully, she will come off of the ventilator in the next 2-3 days.
Her nurse last night took a few pictures to celebrate her 5 month birthday! Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers for our little warrior.
