Just a quick note today. Finished my second (and final) round of ICE today. Not too bad a day. Feeling a bit off from three days of chemo in a row but nothing too bad. The good part of the day is that I had my PICC line removed since I'll be getting a port for the high dose chemo I'm getting towards the end of March. The fun thing is I got to take the PICC line home with me. And of course, I wanted to share that with you:
Yup, that's an 18" plastic snake that ran from my right tricep up into my chest and down into the superior vena cava, which is right above my heart. Hot dog! Now I have a real Borg accessory I can add that to my list of gear. Gross? Cool? A bit of both? You be the judge :)
In any event, I'll be appliance free for about 5 weeks which is really nice. Not having to wrap up my arm up every time I shower and being able to stand under the water and not have to keep my right arm elevated is certainly a nice little treat I will enjoy over the next month or so!
