Mark just had his pumped removed.
He's feeling a bit lighter for not having to carry it around but his arm is pretty sore. We stopped off (I say "we" but I actually vegged out in the car, this cold is not getting any better) on the way home so he could have the community nursing folks take it out and flush his PICC line.
It was a busy spot but I'm sure it's easier to stop off there than it is to wait around at the house for someone to show up and do it for us there.
So far, so good, as far as chemo side-effects go. If he starts to feel rotten over the weekend, we don't have much planned so he can just rest up.
I know that is what I'd like to do because I will be a much happier camper when I can talk, without choking again.
