"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:13-16

Getting Her PICC Line
Well, Julianne is getting her PICC line now. It should take about an hour to two hours so we thought this was a good time to go across the street and post some pictures and videos since we're not allowed to be in the room while they're doing the procedure. By the way, I found out PICC stands for Peripheral Inserted Central Catheter. Its an IV that they put in through a regular vein but then they thread it all the way to either the superior or inferior vena cava (these are the two large veins coming off of the heart). Anyway, just thought I'd explain that because this explanation helped me understand it a little better. :) Other than the PICC line, the only news today is that Julianne seems to be doing well. Her heart rate has not gone too high, in fact, its gone a little too low a couple of times today but nothing major. Julianne's blood pressure has been good as well.
Here are the new pictures and videos:
