PICC Exchange

They are removing Ben's PICC line today. Apparently it is a pretty simple process -- you just pull it out. Takes like two seconds.

Ben is really upset about it. He's going to get an IV, and he hates being stuck. He'll then stay in the hospital, getting antibiotics through the IV to kill off the infection that was in the old PICC line. On Friday, when the infection should be gone, he'll get a new PICC line and be sent home. Assuming all goes as planned, of course.

The good news is that Ben should be able to start school with the rest of his class next week. (Keep those fingers crossed for him!)
