This is how I get daily blood tests and infusions. The tube travels under the skin, loops over the collar bone and dives down the internal jugular to just above the heart.

Oof, that looks pretty gruesome! Hopefully, the process will bring about the desired results.

Thanks for the update.

I don’t know what to say Chris. That picture made the hair on the back of my neck stand up and sent a shiver through my body. I had intensive chemotherapy 12 years ago, but it was nothing like what you are experiencing. My thoughts are with you ; I hope all goes well for you and your family.

Wishing you all the best.

as a matter of curiosity....as far as these procedures go, does being a doctor help or would it be better to be an ignorant layperson?

Locked in a single room now, but Pippa able to visit as she likes in the daytime. Bususlphan IV today and tomorrow, and anti-thymocyte globulin tomorrow and Tuesday. Because busulphan can cause seizures, I'm taking lorazepam/Ativan four times a day, and find I cannot type properly. Transplant goes in Wednesday, the anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks locked in the room until I start to make enough white cells to be allowed out to the Cancer Society Lodge. Then daily visits for blood, platelets, rejection meds until it is deemed OK to go home. Until then I'm in here:
