    Suzie flushed and changed the dressings of my PICC yesterday.  We took some pictures (please see below).  It still makes me laugh to think what we are doing, using needles, syringes, catheter stabilizing devices, etc.  Neither of us could not have imagined doing anything like this 7 months ago…  Now, both of us have become PICC experts!

    The PICC before the dressings change.  Suzie made little 'origami' parcels to cover the ends bits of the PICC last time.  She's very artistic.

    The final step is to cover the whole thing with a tubicrip.
