This is the day that I get my Central Line taken out. Yep, it's time to remove it completely! This is me and my mom in the way cool hotel room we stayed in the night before. This is a picture of the last time I have to get my line flushed. We did this early in the morning, but I can't go to the hospital until 1:00 for my little surgery today. I am so excited to be line free!
It didn't take very long at all. When I started to wake up I didn't see my mom anywhere. I got really scared. My Dad was there to hold me, but I really wanted to see my Mom. The nurse had to page her on the loud microphone because she was upstairs visiting some of her friends. When she came down to hold me I was happy. I was kinda ornery. I don't like waking up from the anesthesia they give me. All I wanted to do was to go home. And so we did. And look at me...I'm line free!!!
They put this bandage on me and I have to keep it here for two whole days. I can't get it wet either. When I take it off then I can get it wet a little. When it is all healed up I will be able to go swimming and lay down all the way in the water when I take a bath. Yeah!
Today is the final day of all of my Treatment! I have to go to the Clinic at the hospital every month to get looked at and get my blood drawn.
I have to get my arm poked to get my blood drawn because I don't have my line anymore. I know it will hurt really badly because I had to do it that way before they got my line put in. I think I might cry, but I'm going to try to be brave!
I love being at my home. I get to be with my whole family. My Dad still has to work all day, but I get to play with my puppy and my sisters, Mayzi and Sunnie. We like to be together. We like to play games. I like Hide and Seek and Don't you dare get off the bed! My family is the coolest ever!
I AM A SUPER BUG!!!
