We've had one thing after another going on. Ben had to be sedated yesterday to enable a few things to be done including a new IV because the site of the original one (one of two original IVs actually) was getting too irritated. Well since then he's been throwing up. Also this boy who loves food and spent a whole 24 hours asking for a peanut butter sandwich won't eat or drink. He's had a few bites of cereal. His blood sugar has finally gotten down to normal but he's been throwing ketones.
The IV they put in yesterday decided that developing a block was a good idea. They tried flushing it three times. Didn't work. Had to sedate him again to put in a PICC which stands from periperhal (something with an I) central catheter. If you look it up it sounds bad, but it will make things a lot simpler. They last longer than IVs and they can do blood draws through them which is a huge plus.
I'm in the waiting room. He's in recovery so I'm just waiting to be called to go in with him. Very tired. He'll likely be sleepy all evening so I may get a shower (yay!) and get to bed early.
Still worried like crazy but glad to be out of the PICU. If we can get him eating, I'll be happy.
