Jackson had his weekly clinic visit this morning to have his numbers checked. While he was at clinic, his broviac tore while they were flushing the line. This would have been no big deal if the hospital had a repair kit handy, but of course they did not have the part. After spending the afternoon calling around for a repair part to no avail, the decision was made to admit Jackson for the evening and to remove his broviac first thing in the morning.
Not ideal, but his broviac has been acting funny for the past few weeks and having a working broviac for stem cell transplant will be important.
Since the timing of Jackson’s discharge is unclear, we have rescheduled our meeting at CHOP until Thursday.
Sorry about the unexpected evening in the hospital buddy!
