Yesterday morning my home nurse April came and pulled my picc. Last August, my picc got "stuck" and it took awhile to get it out, so I wasn't sure how it would go to take it out this time. But it slid out smoothly and she put a bandaid on. But then, just to add a bit of drama, all of a sudden it started gushing blood. So she had to press on it for about 5 min. and got it stopped and she bandaged it. I was glad I had my pajamas on because I got blood all over them. It was wonderful to take a bath last night and be able to get my arm wet. It was wonderful to go to bed last night and realize I didn't have to wake up early to "hook up" to an IV. It's wonderful to have a little more energy! By the way, when I did my PFT's this week at clinic, they had gone from 38% and .96 Liters when I started IV's three and a half weeks ago to 51% and 1.23 Liters. That's right, I said 51%!!! I amazed myself! Here's hoping I will stay feeling like this for awhile!!!
