Rebecca just gave me a quick update on Claire:
Around 10 PM tonight, the doctors and nurses in the NICU decided that they needed to insert a PICC line (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) in to Claire's right arm. It is a semi-permanent IV line that goes into her right arm and up a main vein close to her heart. This was originally in Claire's belly button, but they decided to take it out to prevent infections overtime. This also saves them from having to poke her constantly with IV's and such. I heard that this was a very traumatic experience for Claire, but thankfully she was given some morphine to calm her down and for the pain that went along with it. She is such a fighter!!
Make sure you stop by New Bern Farmer's Market to pick out your favorite Bullock Pumpkins from Chadbourn, NC !! They will be out there from 8-1PM tomorrow! Happy Fall!!
