Unfortunate Surgery...

(Chris here) Cohen's central line sprung a leak last night when we were flushing it so we had to rush him to Primary's. They repaired the line but one of the lumen's clotted. They put some TPA in the line to try and break it up. After hours of waiting it didn't work. So they sent us home and told us to contact Home Health to try again that afternoon. The nurse practioner called us in the morning and had us try to flush the line. After that didn't work she had us come back up to the hospital. They ended up repairing it again to see if the glue they used may have clogged it. While repairing it they figured out the glue was not the problem. They figured it was just super clotted. So guess what..... Surgery to replace the line sometime on Monday.

Update: Surgery will now be on Tuesday.
