Possibly I exaggerate, but I am very happy today.

I arrived at the day unit to be told that if my blood tests came back ok, I could have my line out today.  So I hung around for about 90 minutes and was then given the go-ahead to go down to Vascular Access.  I had to hang around a bit there too, but then it was about 20 minutes of minor surgery and boom, no more central tunnelling line.

From tomorrow, I can shower as normal!  No more having to muck about taping plastic over a dressing and contorting myself to keep water off it.  I should be fully healed up in 7-10 days. I will be able to go swimming!  I can consider exercising!

My line is out, my blood results are fine, so I no longer need to go in to the day unit.  I said goodbye and thank you to the staff there as I left - they are the nicest people I hope I don't have to see again.  I don't have to go to the hospital again until my appointment with my consultant towards the end of the month.  It is like a whole bunch of normality got returned to me all at once.

I have been grinning in the goofiest way since leaving Vascular Access.  Such a good day.
