Andrew's been SO wiggly. So very, very wiggly. The first few days are always pretty exhausting for me trying to make sure Andrew doesn't get completely lost in his lines, but mostly, that he doesn't chew on them. It is oh so tempting for a kid his age. I guess he wiggled around a little too much because his line just broke, so IV team is coordinating to come fix it any minute now. I'm glad I noticed his bandage looked a bit darker, because the saline and the backed-up blood had been soaking through his bandage onto his top, and if they hadn't noticed, they might not have been able to repair it by 1:30AM, which is the deadline that they need to make because he gets his ARA-C at 5:30AM (the glue needs 4 hours to dry). Worst case scenario they wouldn't have noticed at all and 60 mLs of ARA-C would get all over him.
Anyway, best be off to help the nurses--but thanks so much for the encouragement, everyone. I really was feeling so much support yesterday. Just hearing from people really does lift me up, so thanks.
