Another central catheter for David :(

Please pray the nurse practitioner can get a PICC line, "peripherally inserted central catheter," into David as well. He needs it because he's on 3 different fluids, including the antibiotic for his necrotizing enterocolitis, which is hard on veins, and the IV feeds since he's on full gut rest. His little veins can't take continuing IVs and re-starts.

He's been very difficult to "thread" with the catheter as it keeps wanting to branch off in a different direction rather than dip down into his superior vena cava (at the top of the heart). Thanks for praying for the practitioners and for David as he endures this procedure! He's not feeling well, either, so it's a lot for a tiny boy.

Praise: Seth is at 42% oxygen right now!! The others are doing fine, Gracie still waiting for her PICC line placement. Thanks for praying for her, too!

Love and gratitude in Him,

Gavin, Carrie, Isaac, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, & Grace Jones
