Lines are out.

Today Gavin has reached all of his goals. He had the ART Line (arterial line sewn into his skin under his left wrist) that was used to get his blood gas tests. Testing the o2 and carbon dioxide levels in his blood was removed. They removed his CVL( central venous line) that was sewn into his neck :( they used to administer meds. His foley has also been removed. All done before 11:00am.

He just got back from his first walk down the hall, less that 24hrs after surgery.  
He should be moved to the cardio floor once there is room. No hurry. 
Next plan is to have his chest tube removed sometime in the couple of days. He is still on a morphine drip and will probably ween down tomorrow. 

Keep cruisen little Munchie!
