PICC line replacement is usually not something that is scheduled in advance. Instead, it is a "fit you in as best we can" procedure. We're grateful that we could be accommodated, but under these circumstances, the waiting room really earns it name.
I got to Dallas at 2:30, and we were checked in and in the waiting room by 3:00. It's now just after 5:00, and Kara has just been called back to the operating room. As procedures go, it's a fairly simple one, now that the holes are already in place. It's really just a matter of slipping out the old line, and slipping in the new one.
Hopefully it will end up being that easy.
