IV Meds – Week 2

Today, the home nurse visited. She changed my PICC bandage; the first one was giving me some sort of rash. The rash is small, little bumps only on my left arm where the line is located. It really doesn’t itch. Nurse seems to think it was the clear tape from my original bandage that was causing the irritation. We’ll see, I guess.

This first week, I have just been really tired. But today, I woke up with blasting headache at 5:30 a.m. when my sweet hubs, LM, headed to work. I tried to tough it out and then took a pain pill. By the time Nurse visited about 10 a.m., the headache was back at it. Ugh. I went outside to pick up the mail and water the little garden. Our tomatoes are still alive even though the temperatures are climbing into the mid 90s. By the time I came inside, I was not feeling well at all so laid down for a bit. Sitting up now, trying to have a snack. playing it by ear today!

On a side note, I am so grateful I am a teacher! I have been able to rest whenever I want and that has been terrific! I do have to work a bit in the afternoon this Thursday, but nothing too major.

Hope all is well out there in the real world, chickies! -B
