Failed attempts at a PICC on Susan’s right arm

Carol again.

Susan went down to IR for a PICC line today.  It took over 2 hours, and multiple tries at a successful line.  They managed to get one into her left arm, but her right arm took a beating, as you can see from the picture.  Afterward, she felt sore, nauseated, and pretty bad all around.  Several hours of sleep later, she was well enough to have the photo taken on my phone.  At least this means she no longer has to be stuck for IVs every 3 days.  No other updates on the medical front.
