Well I had the call yesterday afternoon to attend the day unit this morning, which I duly did. After a false start due to my delicate veins (never happened before - quite like the thought of being delicate somewhere......). Conversations were had reference PICC lines and next thing I knew I was up and running.
I went armed with book, iPad, magazine, cuddly toy, chocolate buttons (well I am delicate) and apart from snaffling the chocolote buttons probably a squeak too early in the day, as then had no buttons to look forward too, I didn't look at anything else.
I did however meet some amazing people and as I am a nurse I ended up chatting about stuff I know about and like to think that amongst all the angst and worry I helped a little bit and certainly received a lot in return.
So all in all waiting to see what side effects rear or don't rear their ugly heads, but in the grand scheme of things I am ok and today was ok...so there we are and hurrah for that. One down five to go.
