Post Op 5

    We were really hoping that Aidan would have been woken up today, but we haven't seen Kirsti or Dr. Foker yet today, so I guess we will have to wait until tomorrow. Aidan had a pretty long Vec Holiday again today, 2 hours and 15 minutes, but he decided to opened his eyes again. :) He finished up his antibiotics today from his fever on Thursday.
    Now for the bad news, Aidan's central line that is in his groin no longer will draw blood, they can still get meds to go into it, but nothing will come out. They draw blood on him 2 times a day and check his potassium at least 3 times a day. Christina had to use his RA "Right Atrium" line to draw blood. They don't like to draw labs from there, but they will have to use it for now. Christina is quite bummed because the RA does not draw usually well either. Tomorrow they might get one of the Attendings to re-wire his central line.
