Yesterday I got a picc line. It was scheduled for 11, but because of delays in surgery I ended up getting it around 1-1:30ish. It’s always weird going on Anastasia. They gave me relaxing medicine to make me not nervous. After that they rolled me into the operation room and starting putting heart monitors on, putting the arm onto a little platform that they were operations on and started putting stuff on my arm to get an ultra sound. As this was going on I was hooked up to Anastasia and got on oxygen. After a few minutes I fell asleep. I woke up and was in my own room. Because of cf I get my own room before and after surgery. After awhile and answering some questions I was rolled back to my room.
After an hour or so of watching movies and attempting to sleep I started getting nauseous. It started off small, but I continued to get more nauseas. My stomach hurt and my mouth kept watering. My mom gave me a container so if I threw up. I eventually threw up, but since I was npo all day and was just main,y on liquids I really had nothing to throw up, but I guess my body found something to throw up.
Npo is when you can’t eat or drink anything and are hooked up to I.V fluids. This happens mainly before having a surgery. Usually I am hooked up to fluids after 12.
After I threw up my mom called my nurse and she said it probably from the Anastasia so that was fun. They gave me some medicine for my nausea and it went away.
Today nothing really happend. I got pfts, that was really the only eventful thing that happened today. My numbers are each down by 5 so that’s not good. We talked about discharge and decided we’re not going home until we feel better. Hopefully I’m not in the hospital on New Years even and new year. I don’t want to spend my last day of 2017 in the hospital and first day of 2018 in the hospital, but it is what it is.
After that I did nothing. Tomorrow I’m going to get my dressing changed on my picc and get it all cleaned up.
