Percy the PICC Line

So, today I got my 8th? PICC line placed (peripherally inserted central catheter). They had to make a second incision because it wouldn’t thread in the first spot. Basically they told me my veins narrow in certain places they shouldn’t and that overall they are tiny baby veins. My luck. They tried threading the guide wire tons of times and they were finally able to get it in place, thank goodness. My arm is super freaking sore though from being messed with and in a tourniquet for nearly 2 hours. Anyways, I have of course named my PICC line because cute names make things suck less. My PICC’s name is Percy and he will help keep me hydrated with saline infusions. Watch out y’all, I’m gonna be extra salty now! (See I’m funny…)
