Working hard! He will likely be here until at least Thursday when he gets a PFT test to see if there are any marked improvements.

Azer had a lot of pain for a few hours after getting his PICC line. Hot packs didn't help much, but Tylenol, ibuprofen and time did.
In the middle of the night, they are thinking the blood clot at the PICC line site got disrupted, and blood filled up all the dressing. They had to do a dressing change in the middle of the night. There is still some blood inside right now, and they will have to do another dressing change today. This can be extremely painful. Hopefully, the site is clotted better now.
His Relizorb cartridge also ended up breaking while he was asleep and he had formula all in his bed. Needless to say, he was really ready to take a shower this morning!
