Got the PICC line!

They were able to put in a PICC line without sedation. They also did a chest X-ray.




He will have three different antibiotics running through it. Several can affect the kidneys so they have to test the levels periodically. Another medication is in the same family as tobramycin and could affect his hearing. They have to use these medications as he has vomiting with an antibiotic he used to be fine with. Another possible medication that could have worked could cause an adverse side effect with one of his GI motility medications.

He will also be starting an inhaled steroid while he's here.

So, here's to hoping that they help his lungs feel better soon!
