Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


To the hospital we go...

...Yeah us. Here we go, but hopefully for just a few hours.

At 5:30 we took down her IV replacement fluids. Flushed her pic line. Checked for blood return. Flushed again. All was well.

At 10:00 we went to hang her TPN and IV fluids and it is locked down tight. Now flow in or out.

Not having access as this point in her recovery is not acceptable. She is still on 30cc of TPN for 10 hours each night. She is also requiring 90ccs of half normal for ostomy output replacement. We have to have access tonight or she'll be dehydrated by the morning hours.

We're crossing our fingers that we will be able to get the line open and flowing in just a few hours. If not then we will be admitted and have an IV replaced and then be on our way to Shreveport tomorrow for surgery.

Please join us in praying for the "clot buster" to work.

Hopefully we'll talk to you soon from our little house instead of the hospital. Goodnight guys. Trish
