I had my tunnel PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) line installed this morning so now I can have my IV antibiotics and blood draws done from a single port for the next few weeks. Once we get the last antibiotic nailed down by the ID (infectious disease dept) and set up some home care I should be able to leave. Hopefully this will be tomorrow because my roomie has been trying my patience. I know it's not fun being in the hospital and that stress and fear can bring out the worse traits in a person, but I have yet to hear "please" or "thank you" even one time from this guy and he is pretty high maintenance. A couple of nights ago he barked at the phlebotomist for turning on too many lights before making a blood draw and he even complained that his dinner showed up 10 minutes too EARLY!!! A real piece of work.
