vein, such as the cephalic vein, basilic vein, or brachial vein and then advanced through increasingly larger veins, toward the heart until the tip rests in the distal superior vena cava or cavoatrial junction.
We were not able to be in the room when they tried to insert the line, but when we came back we found out that they were not able to insert the line. The nurse told me that is actually pretty common, but it still worries me. I don't know why it worries me, but every time they do anything I worry constantly.
My dad and Mary were still up from Kentucky and it was nice that they were able to meet Hope. They are planning to come back next week when we find out the date of her first surgery.
I am pretty sure that I spent too much time on my feet yesterday and they were telling me that last night. They were swollen so much that I could barely walk when I got home last night. It is really hard to find time to take care of myself while Hope is in the hospital, but I know I have to at least try. It is not going to do either of us any good if I get sick and can't visit her.
