I hate down time in a hospital bed. Had too much of it last year myself, but you have my curiosity . What is a Hickman line?
Wait a minute. I googled it. It is a serious type of catheter, Ugh. And if that was where the infection got in, I would be inclined to think your medics screwed up.
Getting old sucks big time. Sometimes the alternative doesn't seem so bad so long as I have a chance to put things in proper order first.
Having been killed once gives me some insight.
On the other hand, will you be riding again when this is over?
