First Surgery Scheduled
In these first 5 days, you have had dozens and dozens of IV's started in your arms, legs and scalp. The nurses are running out of places to stick you--and they shaved several patches of that beautiful hair we were so proud of! So the docs tried to place a PIC line, which is more long term than a normal peripheral IV. After several attempts, they couldn't do it and decided the best option was to place a central line. You will need surgery tomorrow to have it placed, hopefully in your leg, but maybe chest or (eek) neck. This should last at least a month, and although it worries me for you to undergo anesthesia already, I know it is for the best and will make you so much more comfortable.
