Zoe will be NPO today, her Dr has her on iv fluids to keep her hydrated. She will have surgery this afternoon to have a portcatherter placed. We are all hoping and praying that this will give Zoe some "pain-free" CF years. She is so very anxious and scared of the medical personnel from being on this forward train of pain from iv's, piccs, blood draws...etc.....Her anxiety is at an all time high.
Please keep her in your prayers that this will be a successful surgery, that she will adjust to having a "permanent marker" of CF in her body.
It's hard for Scott and I to think of another thing added to her CF life. I think you always know these things are a possibility when you're dealing with CF, sometimes you're just not expecting it. Not at 7....
We have gotten a lot of positive input for the portcatherter....how it will make her admissions much easier on her. This is our hope and prayers.
