Dr H is trying to make arrangements for my PICC line surgery to be done this week. Unfortunately, the PICC Line Nurse he usually uses is out of country for a month. So his staff are trying to make alternative arrangements. I guess all we can do now is to "Hurry up and wait"
In the interim, I will be starting the Bicillin injections tomorrow morning. Those are shots you get in your butt. I'm not remotely looking forward to that - apparently its a very BIG needle and it takes a full 5 minutes to infuse. DR H has actually had the nerve to tease me about it. He's a terrible tease. As you can imagine him and Graham are getting along just swimmingly.
