The PIC is out!

They pulled the PIC out of my arm yesterday.  No more IVs every eight hours.  A PIC is an IV put into your arm or neck.  The IV is put into a vein and goes almost to the heart.  So every eight hours I had to give myself what is called an infusion.  A pump infuses my vein with antibiotics.  The whole process takes about 2 hours because the drugs are in the fridge and need to be warmed up to room temp.  PIC's are used to treat bone infections and I had two of them.

I saw these words on the play bill wall at Pike Place Market.  There was more written but I only photographed the part that made me happy.
