Losing a picc line

CT scan Wednesday was the best one yet…diverticulitis has cleared – lets get that picc line out and schedule the kidney surgery!  June 9th has been penciled in for the removal of the left kidney.  When cancer has invaded your body and hangs there in the back of your mind, it seems like a long time to wait…but the scheduler assured me that kidney cancer is a slow grower…I hope she’s right.  Keeping that in mind, since March 9th, I’ve been asking the question…so at what point is the cancer contained and not spread and no longer contained and spread.  No one seems to be able to answer that…so I’m putting my life in the hands of professionals who believe that waiting 6 weeks to take it out won’t have a negative effect on my life.

The picc line removal was about as exciting as having a regular IV removed.  My nurse, Angie, obviously didn’t know that I was a goul and liked to watch medical procedures up close and personal so she told me to look away while she pulled it out…bummer.  Reminded me of how Jenny distracts Jaxon when she’s putting syrup on her pancakes…look over there, Jax.


Just for the record, I’m officially old.  1 tsp every morning.


I have an issue with my left upper back teeth so I’m having to go for a cleaning every 3 months this year…ya…nothing says old like the sound of a cleaning instrument!

This tree is outside my bedroom window.  I love it…I’ve always wanted to have one of these trees in my yard.


The one thing that is going to keep me young…here we are paying the game…Nina…and I turn around and he giggles.


and the best part of last night – we finally made it back to Ice House Auction after being gone for almost 2 months.

Until next time….

One thought on “Losing a picc line

  1. I agree June 9th seems like such a long way away! When they did the CT did they also look at the kidney to see if there had been any growth?
    I am glad you are healing up! Get strong and healthy so you heal like a champ from the surgery!
