Pic Line

Friday, August 30, 2013

My mom is 91 and just got out of the hospital and my daughter and I had to learn how to give a pic line to her. Thank God its fairly easy and not much to it. It takes about 30 min. and is a little like my infusion and is also sent by the same people and the same information line. I already have their number on my contact list so most of it is fairly easy and not time consuming. Mom is doing good and enjoys all the attention. Hope

    So good to hear that Mom's out of the hospital now! emoticon Sometimes, that medical experience we get along the way really comes in handy, doesn't it? I've never needed an infusion, fortunately, though I can remember about a month of sleepless nights on oral prednisolone for an attack years ago...and they say Ambien works well, but I had insomnia to beat the band that time! emoticon Wishing both of you an abundance of good health. emoticon

    Hope your mom is feeling better. My mom was also in the hospital a couple of weeks ago and is getting around much better now. You did great!
