Not leaving on Sunday

Evan has an infection at the entrance of his tube in his belly. We had been giving antibiotics via his GJ tube but it's not cutting it anymore. We had to put another IV in for antibiotics and even the expert Neonatal Transfer Nurse Manager had great difficulty in finding a vein that would work. It took her four tries and she used every tool, bright light, back light, and black light and trick in her book. I can only imagine how many tries it would have taken the knucklehead resident doctors to get it had I even let them try. She said that in time it would become easier but that she hopped we wouldn't need to stick him any more any time soon. Poor baby.

So because of this we will probably not leave until Monday or Tuesday. Sigh....
