No More Broviac!

Caeden had his Broviac central line removed on Thursday. He still had one day of antibiotics left so they put in an IV so we could finish the antibiotics. The reason they removed it when they did is because if it wasn't Thursday then it would have been the end of May before they could have removed it.

We were able to stay in the room when they removed Caeden's line. It was a very quick procedure and they gave Caeden a local anesthetic only. They put a patch over the hole and said we could remove it on Saturday. We went back Friday afternoon to the hospital so they could remove the IV.

It is so nice to not have to worry about the central line anymore. Denae and I are looking forward to giving Caeden his first REAL bath! We have only been able to give him sponge baths up to this point because of his line. When we give Caeden his first bath I think we will just let him play in the water for as long as he wants because I am sure he is gonna love it.

Caeden has been doing great and developing quite the personality! He is a very happy baby and smiles all the time. We looked forward to him staying healthy and spending quality time with him at home.


  1. Yea! I think I heard a collective sigh of relief from everyone when the line came out. I know I heard one from the Kouri family. We are so happy he is doing well, and can't wait to see him the end of May. Thank you for the wonderful pics you sent, they mean a lot to me. We love and miss you all! Give that little boy a splash in his tub from his favorite, Penny!
