I’m back

I’m back, mostly. Got me and unbelievable dose of hay fever. I’m miserable. But that’s cool. Off the dentist today for the first time in two years. I am so excited. I wasn’t allowed to go when I was sick, but here it is -- the whir of the drill; the chip, chip, chip of the cleaning thing tool against my tartar, the inevitable water-boarding about flossing, and the new toothbrush. Yay!!

I am very excited. There is an unescapable symbolism with this act of mundanity. 

Here’s your tips.

Tip #2 – Only wear t-shirts with pocket and wear them inside-out so you stuff your catheter lumens in the pocket so they’re not jangling and tugging on stuff.

Tip #3 – For PICC lines Instead of gauze get some old athletic tube socks and cut off the toe and slide that up your arm to secure all the tubing.
