Day 23 – Still in the Hospital

Happy Father’s Day!

Got to bed by 11:00 last night. At 12:15 they came for blood draw and vital signs. They also hung another bag of antibiotics.

I went back to sleep.

At 4:30 am the Tech came in for vital signs. I was so tired.

I went back to sleep.

At 7:30 am they came back for vital signs. I slept on and of until 8.

Ordered brakfast at 8, but didn’t get it until 9.  Blueberry muffin, banana, orange juice and hot chocolate.

At lunchtime my husband came and brought me a bacon sandwich and chips, very fattening, but good.

A litttle while later, the doctor came by and decided that the 2 bacteria cultures that were growing were coming from the PICC line. He ordered it to come out as soon as possible, and an IV line be put it right before.

My nurse tried to hit a vein, but couldn’t.    The Picc line nurse came and did it. Also, she then took out the contaminated PICC line. It didn’t hurt one bit.

My younger son came by after work for a little while, then my older son showed up and spent the rest of the day with my husband and I. It was great. I am feeling better today with much more energy. 

More chinese for dinner.

They left around 7:00. I got a shower and will watch a little TV, then bed. I will be punctured at midnight for blood, then they will give me more antibiotics through the IV line.
