Just waiting

So Mariska is still here at PCMC. hmm we're a little unsure why we are still here. We think they like us to much to send home. haha.

We think they are afraid to pull out her pacer wires, They tried yesterday from the x-ray this morning it looks like they only could get the half the way out, seems odd. they said yesterday they would try to pull them today, and today they said they are going to do a echo and pull the wires tomorrow... Our nurse is not sure why we are still her either, She thinks they want Linda to come and pull the wires...She's works tomorrow so looks like we're just chillin today. How do I get them to just get the IV team to take her blood? they are having a hard time with the draws yuck.

This time the girl poked her and nothing came so she started "FISHING" (moving the needle around OUCH) That's when I had to leave, Sam said they poked her a few more times, and did a few pull out half way and go back in.... It makes me sick to even think of it.

Please keep us in your prayers

Hugs Melynda, Sam and Mariska

I totally get the IV team crap, Teagan went through the same thing. Hope you get to go home soon. You'll be in our prayers along with all our other sweet- HEARTS!

We are the Ryan & Brytt Pettit's family. We were checking out their heart friends blogs & praying for the heart babies. Anyway.. When we had our baby up at PCMC and they went "fishing" for a vein and eventually had to call the IV team after both Mom & Dad were in tears the IV team came and told us if we are ever up there just request that the IV team come and don't mess around. So when my later child had to go up just for a blood draw that is what I did & they do come. So request them and hopefully you can skip the future fishing trips.

Good luck :)

I am Jodi Pettit's sister I worked up there at PCMC for awhile and if you request the IV team it shouldn't be a problem you might have to wait a little longer but it is worth it. Stay strong.
