We are thrilled to wish Cody a very happy birthday and the fact that he is now at home again is the best present for Cody.
His hickman line has been reinserted but unfortunatley we have lost our first vein. They say there are 6 veins in the body that can be used for a hickman line (this line feeds him his TPN and also fluids each day) but for cody, our surgeon informed us that he only has the use of 3?? We know that they need 2 good veins for transplant and with loosing one vein we are down to our last two already. This is something that needs to be clarified with the surgeon next week.
