PIC LINE PROCEDURE TODAY
Witt is still slowly going in the right direction! Feeds have been started but were stopped last night so he could have work done on his existing PIC line or a new one put in. This procedure does require Witt to have a cardiac anesthesiologist. He is getting less and less sedation throughout the day so he is awake a lot more....awake and playing with his toys! Witt is now on ventilator support trials every 3-4 hours and seems to being doing good. So far we don't know when they might try to extubate. The main goal for today is a familiar one...pull more fluid off of Witt!!! His diuretic dose will be increased and/or another one may be added. There has been no mention of when Witt might be moved out of the CVICU. Hopefully he will be headed at least down to the PICU soon!!
