Surgery #3

The surgery to remove his central line was quick and simple. After we got home, I took the opportunity to snuggle with him and just hang out for the rest of the day.  He and I really needed it.

He wasn't feeling super great today, but he still managed to have some fun.  I'm hoping he is even better tomorrow and is ready to go to school on Monday.  Monday night, we go in for a finger poke to get his weekly CBC to make sure his counts are high enough for chemo on Tuesday.  It will be interesting to see how he does with it.  It may help us make the decision on whether or not to put in a new central line.

After his spinal on Tuesday

Central Line (Hickman)

 Surgery Prep - Decorated his mask

 He stared to get nervous, so he played a game to distract him

 Going home after it was done - he was pretty groggy
