Battle Scars

Last week, I went to the hospital again to get my fifth picc line.  Yes, you read that correctly...5 stinkin' picc lines have been placed into my body since December '10 with no definite end in sight.  Hopefully this will be the last one until we stop my IV treatment, but who knows!  Usually people can keep them in for a while, infact, I even have a friend who had one for a year.  Unlike my dear friend, my body rejects picc lines which causes me a lot of pain and forces me to get it replaced.  Fortunately I have not had any infections yet.  The inside of my arms is covered in small circular scars which I consider battle scars from my Lyme fight!~
