Charlotte needs a constant stream of a very specific medicine that works to keep her heart supplying oxygenated blood to her body until surgery.  This medicine was being delivered through a central line in her groin but it has stopped working and must be replaced.  Made more complicated is the fact that she is now awake so the simple task of starting an IV line has become nearly impossible thanks to her veins being so uninhabitable.  She needs the IV line first so that she's able to be sedated before working on a establishing another central line.  Again, this is made especially complicated because of Charlotte's small size and bad veins.  As the doctors continue to work, please pray that both are successfully secured SOON.  What should have taken no more than 90 minutes, has now turned into 6 hours.
