In my recovery news, the PICC line did come out yesterday. I worried and worried about what it would be like for it to come out and it was no big deal. The nurse asked me to look away, take in a deep breath, let it out forcefully, and when I finished she was holding the PICC line in her hand - I didn't feel a thing! I think the worst thing about it was the tape holding it in place. The tape pulled on my skin and gave me a blister, it itched, and was generally uncomfortable all the time. But, it's worth it to get rid of the infection.
Being back at work yesterday was exhausting. I was sleeping by about 7 p.m.! Maybe my stamina will have improved for today.
