It wasn’t until ten o’clock last night, but it finally happened. The IV line was placed and the first dosage of antibiotics were given. Let’s all just hope this works. Like most things, it wasn’t easy.
In fact, it came down to the last attempt to find a good vein. The sad fact is that Ryan’s veins have been used so many times that it is difficult to find a good one.
A couple more notable things are happening today. First, Ryan will be transported (with me) to radiology to get another MRI. This is to help determine the exact location and position of the Celect IVC filter. There’s concern that the filter has shifted and is putting him at risk of puncturing the large vein that joins the leg veins to the heart (inferior vena cava). Our hope is it’s in an alignment that we can surgically retrieve it, which is a relatively easy procedure… given it’s in good position.
Secondly, one of Ryan’s largest fundraisers take place today. The Greg Wells Team (RE/MAX) second annual golf tournament at the 1757 Club in Ashburn. It is my intent to attend about the time the golfer’s make their way back to the clubhouse for a dinner. Then this is followed by an auction. Our thanks to all the sponsors, donators, and Greg Wells.
