Poor Little Thing...
Karsie's PIC line had to be messed with today. A day or so after Karsie was born she was given something called a PIC line which is a line that goes from her foot through an artery (we think) directly into her heart so that medications can be more easily given and she only has to get stuck that one time instead of giving her multiple shots into her veins every day. While it is supposed to last for a long time, her line got tangled or "kinked" and they are having to adjust it. It's just something that we can't imagine feels good, and given the last few days, Karsie has been messed with a lot. It's time for her to rest.
Other than that she is doing well. Her ventilator was weaned again today, so hopefully that means she is getting closer to trying again off of it. We actually haven't seen her in close to 24 hours as yesterday we were exhausted and didn't go in for the night shift, and today we went in and since they were doing the sterile procedure with her PIC, we couldn't go in. We are getting very anxious.
