This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

New IV Line
I woke up at 8:00am to nurse Tiffany and nurse Scott putting a new peripheral IV (IV in the vein) line in Scarlett's right wrist. Tiffany said they'll probably remove both art lines (IV in the artery) today. She gave her some ibuprofen orally, and Scarlett immediately barfed it up along with a lot of mucusy spit up. Tiffany suctioned her, then washed her off and changed her sheets. They took off her right arm restraint and also removed her cebreral oximeter. Little by little she's looking more and more like a regular baby free of tubes and wires. :)
For now, Scarlett's just kickin' back watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the Disney channel.
Oooo, it's time for rounds, I need to go eavesdrop...
