PICC Infection is Receding

Last night around 8:00 pm, D and I took a good look at my PICC arm and the infection had receded below the line drawn on by arm my Onc. And this morning it’s even further back of the line. Yippee.

Yesterday throughout the day, the whole PICC line area on my upper arm was itchy … really itchy. And it got itchier into the evening … symptoms of healing? I couldn’t resist massaging the area a little bit with the tips of my fingers for some relief. 

Hopefully I can get back on chemo this Friday. Fingers and toes are crossed.
