I am currently free of my CVC. Yippee!!! No more wiggly little bit of plastic tubing dangling in my heart. No more lumens. No more clamps to dig into my chest. Best of all, tomorrow I'll finally be able to wash that patch of skin. You have no idea how excited I am about that. Please bear in mind I was the child that had to be bathed three or four times a day because I couldn't stand to be dirty.
I'm back on oral anti-fungals today, so my fingers are crossed that my liver enzymes remain stable. I'd hate to be celebrating today only to have to have another catheter put in later this week.
I'm going to lay low for the next two days in anticipation of finally, officially being released to leave Houston Wednesday. Chris and I have started packing and are just waiting for Dr. Kebriaei to sign off on the entire affair.
