Yesterday, Dr. West noticed in Graham's chest X-ray that a piece of metal was in his chest. After further inspection, they concluded it was a piece of wire used to help put the central line in place (last week) and when they took this portion out, it left part of the wire in the vein. An Interventional Radiologist will enter through Graham's upper leg/groin area and pull out the 2-3 inch wire.
This is a surgery, so the ventilator goes back in. This will all happen at 3:30pm today. He was doing so great the past couple days, it seems like for every step forward, we take two steps back. Let's all hope this is just a minor setback and he can jump back on that road to recovery.
