Feeding tube & PICC lines removed

Denise has no more hospital artifacts left in her body! This morning the home care nurse removed Denise's PICC line. Then we got a call from the Huntington Hospital saying that they had a cancellation and they squeezed us in for an interventive radiology appointment to remove the feeding tube. Denise said they glued her wound closed. She couldn't eat or drink anything from late morning (when the feeding tube was removed) until evening. For me, having the last two tubes removed was psychologically a bigger deal than getting her out of the hospital this last time. With the last discharge, I was waiting for something to go wrong. But with these last two hoses being removed, I feel like things really are getting back to normal.

"Normal" what a beautiful word to use when describing the events of the day. Answers to prayers abound.

Wow, wow, wow. Congratulations! That is such good news. I am just envisioning Denise with NOTHING attached to her anymore, and it's amazing. I can hardly wait for her to look like the picture on the top of the blog that we see each time that we check it!
Love you,
Rachel
