The line has to go. The bacteria is still growing and the doctors are just not comfortable with leaving it in. I am ok with it. I know Dr. S and I trust him, above everyone else here, to make the best decision for Ana. If Dr. S says, "Its gotta go." Then, it has to go!
Things have become rather busy up here with other patients, so Ana's line removal will be tomorrow. She will have to be sedated for the removal by Dr. S, then, another doctor will place a PICC line to use until the infection clears.
Thank you for continuing to pray for our little Ana! I will update tomorrow.
