Line Installation

I had the Hickman Line inserted today as a day case, well more of an afternoon case to be honest. The wound is seeping a little but aparently that is to be expected. Trouble is my shirt has some red stains on the front now!

Have to ring the hospital at 9 in the morning to confirm that a bed is available and expect to be in for three or four days. its a nice ward though, each bed has its own TV and there are only four beds in each bay which has its own bathroom there should be no queing to wash or use the loo.

Will post again over the coming weekend to let you know how things are working out.

Anyway thats enough of my problems, i hope you are all keeping well.
