Baby Tess clearly failed to read her discharge plan. (God also must have a larger plan in mind for the Benjamin family this week).
At 3 AM this morning, my husband woke up in our local hospital to realize that our baby's IV line was broken. A piece of plastic about 18 inches long is now lodged inside my baby's heart.
That news freaked out the doctors in the regular hospital, but now that we are at Children's Hospital--this problem seems to be a bit more 'fixable.'
So I'm back in the NICU at Children's Hospital. I've got a super hungry baby girl whose heart rhythms seem to be fine for the moment. They will schedule some kind of surgery today or tomorrow to remove the IV piece from her heart.
Please pray for Baby Tess and her family.
St. Teresa of Avila, pray for us.
