I feel like crappola.  Got my new PICC Monday and was too worn out to do the IV.  Did 1 IV Tuesday and did 2 yesterday.... and no nurses have called or anything... and then I notice on the IV bag that it's to be used once every 24 hours.
Call my LLDr. only to find out that I'm only supposed to do 1 IV a day (oops) and that the nursing agency dropped the ball and should have been here 2 days ago.
So, considering I haven't had a bath since Monday..... and I have a nurse coming out.... and well, I DO want her to return - haha!
So now it's IV Invanz, Flagyl, Wellbutrin, Paxil, Xanax, Hydrocodone (but I'm out), Acidophilus, and Coumadin (while the PICC is in).
I have a bad cold, everything hurts, I can't sleep anymore.... and I really don't know how much more I can take.

Too bad I can't ride over to your house to give you a gentle hug. I know you've been through so much. I hope the aching and paing subside soon.
