I have blisters/rash again under my dressing. So we've tried to "fix it" like last time and it's not working so far. However, it's not draining as bad tonight as it did last night and this morning. (by this time last night 50 percento f my dressing was covered in oozy stuff and tonight ... ther'es nothing seaping up yet). However, my nurse and my doctor want me to go see a picc line specialist tomorrow for them to check it out. So please pray ...

1. my blisters/rash go away by tomorrow
2. that they won't pull it quite yet b/cI have more treatments
3. that it's not infected.


My appointment is 3pm Eastern time.

Dear Jennifer,
I am glad you are going to see the picc doctor to get ahead of this. It is so common and frustrating to hear.
I will pray for you tonight with hope that any infection can be drawn out and cleared away so that you can continue with your treatment -- and I will ask the Lord to guide you in your decisions no matter what so that you can know His plan for your continued care.

With love in Christ,
Diana

Your prayers have worked so far. the picc line specialist said that my line itself looks wonderful. He also thinks it's an allergic reaction to some sort of chemical they are using to clean it. So today he changed the dressing for a better breathing one so the blisters can dry out. He gave me the bandage too so we can use it at my nurses office every week.

I was also instructed (had been before as well) to use benedryl to help dry out the blisters (and get me some sleep) and hydrocortisone cream for the part of the arm that's not under the dressing.

*yeah* we're gonna figure it out. IN fact, I may ask my nurse to do an experiment on my belly or something. Though I don't know that I feel like going through the feeling I have on my arm on my belly.

Dear Itchy One,
Is it lessoning yet? I'm hoping that the help from the nurse/doc and the healing fm the blisters will lesson as you go...

if not, EMU oil works great for this kind of inflammation driven itching!
http://www.thunderridgeemu.com - costly but natural and effective. Olive oil or arnica montana cream from Heel also (whole foods, nutrition store, etc..)

i'm not really allowed to use any ointment near the picc line.

Woke up really itchy today. (all over itchy) Of course I can't take anything at this hour b/c it woudl put me to sleep and I have to be up to head out to work shortly. Sooooo I'll just be patient with the itchy and when I get home ... take benedryl and sleep for another insane amount of time

Today I basically slept from 10:30am until 3:45 am (next day). CRAZY ain't it.

all from my treatment.
