Mum has kept me under house arrest for the past few days but she allowed me to leave the house last night. Rona, Teenie and I went over to our friend Cat's new flat which was fun. It was good to be out! We made fajita's and had a good blether. Cat also took some pictures... None of which are flattering.

Today has been a rather odd day. I was told yesterday that I have yet another infection and they seem to think that the root of these infections is the Hickman Line. So, they decided the Hickman Line had to go. I was pleased in a way, as I will no longer have two dangly things from my chest but it now means I'll need to get needles again... Hopefully my veins have picked up a bit so it won't be too bad. When we went in this morning, I found out that they want to give me the antibiotics for a week and that I might have to stay in... I was NOT happy with this and managed to come to an arrangement where I can get the antibiotics as an out-patient so that's quite good. I was pretty nervous about getting the Hickman Line removed but it actually went really smoothly. The nurses are so lovely and really put you at ease. I didn't even notice her taking it out! The most painful part was the anaesthetic! They're hoping I won't need another round of chemo but if I do, I might need to get another Hickman Line put in. Oh well, wait and see I guess!
