Fem Line Free! Sept 6, 2012

September 7, 2012

Oliver’s femoral line is out! He finished his antibiotics so now his blood stream is foreign body free! Hooray! He’s finishing all his bottles like a champ and if he keeps it up we can say bye bye to that NG tube tomorrow! We’ll also have an ultrasound tomorrow to see about those pesky clots. If they’re gone or calcified we can stop his enoxaprin injections. Otherwise 6 more weeks of those. The H word has been thrown around. I am now in holding-my-breath mode praying for no hiccups to delay our exit (hopefully early next week!). Pray pray pray! This family needs to be under a single roof. Xo

Cute guy!

Cute girl!

Hoping next time you see this grin it’ll be tape and tube free!

    Congrats to all of you!!! My little boy Cy was born on July 17, 2012 and we have been faithfully following our friend Oliver’s miraculous story and his family’s courageous journey.
    I swear our boys have the same eyes …
    My husband has been praying for all of you as well and we are just so happy for Ollie’s positive outcome. Thank you for inspiring us every day to be stronger, calmer, and better first time parents. And Alex, your eloquence and gentle writing style allows us readers to really walk along side of you. What a gift all of you are. Go Ollie Boy!!!
