If he does need another IV, not sure if it will be a PICC or a regular IV. We think PICC because Milrinone needs to be given into a central or close to central vein. Hopefully we won't have to worry about that.
Those of you have visited in the last few days will be very happy to know that Simon got his stinky, smells-like-frat-house head washed.
See exhibit A (favorite nurse Carol after she washed his little head and wrapped it like a diva).
Then we put him to sleep without having to swaddle him or tie his little hands down because the only bad thing he could grab is his NG tube and that's not a huge deal.
Before PICC removed- see crazy ports and smelly, smelly tape
After PICC- smelling good, silly bald spot, peaceful baby, happy Mommies
Our nurse gave me the ports (they separate) so I can make pasties out of them someday. I think I have a naughty nurse costume in the works. How wrong is that?
Laura's parents leave tomorrow which feels pretty crazy. They've been our right hands through this whole thing. Laura now will be at the hospital most mornings from 7:30 am to 1:30 pm by herself. That might be a good time for visitors if people have mornings free.
P.S. Simon learned how to turn pages while in the ICU. Seriously- look at the video.
