Day Three- pic line
The thing about a teaching hospital is that they have the latest technology, and whenever the doctor walks in the room, there are 4-6 students hanging on his every word and not looking you in the eye.
This morning Ella had a pic line put in. She had to go under general anesthesia for the procedure. She cried as soon as they moved her bed out of the room. She knew that if we were leaving the room on the bed, it wasn't for a fun reason. She cried all the way down to the procedure room and until the medicine took effect. Steve and I sat in the waiting room. This is a place in the hospital where 5 minutes seems like an hour. She went through the procedure and came out great. No nausea or anything. She is such a trooper.
Second round of chemo starting now.
