"Can anything just be easy"

A direct quote from Dr. F. - the surgeon. No problems getting her on the ventilator. He was able to get in and went to remove the mediport only to realize that the tubing had severed from the actual mediport.
Okay. No problem. We'll just reach in and get it.
Too far down.
He called the people from Angio/Radiology and had their team come down and take a look. All the veins look open enough, so they are going in through her groin and trying to get it out that way. It could be 15 minutes. It could be 2 hours. He is very confident this will work and we can still be on our way later this afternoon.
Worse case scenario...doing an open procedure to remove it.
We'll keep you posted....:)
