Ashley's central line has been removed. This has been an extremely emotional morning and our nerves are pretty well shot. The nurse that cut the line (Linda) has decided to take another patient as she is to upset to take care of Ash. We are extremely disappointed with what has happened but we are not angry with Linda. I just spoke with her in the hall and she began crying an apologizing to me. She is very distraught and felt she should not continue to care for Ash. I let her know that we were not angry with her, just very disappointed with the situation. Please pray for Linda as this will be a difficult day for her as well. Please pray for Ash that she will not get an infection and that a future surgery will not be necessary.
