It is awesome. I get all my IV meds and all my labs drawn from those two little nodes. It makes life SO much easier.
Unfortunately, blood clots can form and the PICC line needs to get out. My PICC line got a clot and had to be removed. I got a new one and everything is just peachy, but let's take a moment to remember PICC I, my trusty companion that lasted me through my first four weeks of chemo.

Rest in Peace PICC I. You will be missed, but never forgotten.
