PICC line is in!

The nurse practitioner just called to say that they were able to successfully put the PICC line into David!  We are very thankful.

They are trying to wean Seth down off the oscillator ventilator from a mean pressure setting of 15 to 12 or less.  The ventilator that is a step down (and preferable) from the oscillator can only go up to 12, so once he is able to do well at 12 on the current one, they'll switch him.  That will be better for his lungs and allow him to start practicing breathing on his own.

Grace is doing fine, but not recovering as quickly as they hoped she would.  She is needing a bit more help from the respirator.  She has some junk in her throat that they are checking for infection, which we really pray against.  They were hoping to start her on feeds again tonight, but that depends on whether they hear stomach sounds or not and whether they have to start her on antibiotics.

Will is puffy.  He's got a lot of fluid to lose, but is doing well.

Marcie is doing fine, too.

Isaac had a good day at school and is spending the night and all tomorrow with a good friend.  Thanks, Schlenkers!
