Going to Chicago!
I'm leaving for Chicago and pretty well packed! I have been wanting to blog because I got the most...MOST...exciting news on Friday! I will not be getting a central line! They don't use them anymore for this, they now do a picc line! Which is creepy if you don't know what they are, but way less prone to infection and they do it bed side with local anasthetic.
I have been buying things to wear in the hospital that have an open neck for the central line...jokes on me! Picc goes in my arm! So, now what? I packed some T-shirts and can hopefully put on sweatshirts over the line, if not, I'll cut of the sleeve of a couple! No worries! One sleeve up, one sleeve down...trendy!
Trying to keep a positive attitude and give all my fear to God. Gets hard sometimes, but I know he can handle it...I can't! Fear can consume people...I do NOT want to be consumed! Sounds like you've been eaten...kinda like the saying "it's eating you alive"...no thanks! LOL
You can tell I'm nervous, but I am going in knowing a great deal about what's going to happen and what to expect, so I will adjust as I go through it.
Pray for Jessica...she will be without her Mommie and I don't think she realizes how tough it will be. There are so many everyday things Mom's do for their children. I have friends to help, I just pray she's patient with herself and others. She can be such a great person.
Pray for Bob, he'll be without his best friend and the person that runs the home. He needs patients and guidance too, and has to deal with a pre-teen, home, and work!
I'll update in 3 days, when I'm doing all my cognative tests and paper work! HUGS to you all!
