If I could write a poem about an IV stick, it would be about this one for sure 🥰💯
This IV stick in my right forefinger was the **best** IV stick I’ve ever had in 16 years of being stuck (thousands of times).
The stick went in last Saturday night (after the John Williams performance at the Hollywood Bowl, first time Noah and I did anything in years),
and a week later tonight the stick was *still* good — in fact, the line was even leaking back blood earlier today, which is the sign of a *really* good line cuz it’s open —
But I had to take it out cuz it was starting to itch a little…if I had to, the dressing could have come off, cleaned my finger, then put clean dressing over the same stick,
but thankfully I’m scheduled to get my new power port put back in on Monday morning so I’ll be okay for a day and a half 🥰❤️.
And even better news?
The cough that I’ve had for **months** — the cough that was so bad I was spontaneously vomiting and ripping muscles all throughout my chest and stomach area —
That cough is **finally** subsiding on the IV Invanz!! Wow wow wow yea!
I should probably do another lung CT in a couple of weeks to see if my lungs look like they’re improving on imaging too…I wonder how long this is gonna take…
But for now,
I’m glad the cough is subsiding. It’s gonna be a long journey in front of me back on IV meds, so I’m looking forward to getting my power port back in on Monday 🙂
(Noah kept saying he thought my cough was infection based, and it’s definitely starting to look like he’s right…im so relieved it’s going away, I was getting really worried it might have been the Big C…)
