Yesterday, Carter had his PICC line put in and he did fantastic. The wonderful PICC team allowed me to stay in the room the entire time and talk to and love on Carter. The PICC is working great! Today, Carter's incision, that stool is coming out of, decided to open up even more. It opened to the point there is visible intestine. There is still nothing that can be done right now. The plan, for right now, is to take Carter home on Friday with the PICC line. He will receive two different antibiotics and TPN. TPN is an artificial way to feed Carter through his IV. It fully bypasses the digestive track. Carter started TPN last night to give his digestive system a break. The only negative part of being on TPN is that while being in the hospital is, Carter cannot eat. Once we are at home, Carter will be allowed to eat even though the TPN will still be his primary source of nutrition. Our family appreciates all of the prayers and words of encouragement. God is good...ALWAYS!
