I understand that you feel nervous, it's something unknown and a new step in your treatment. But I had both a PICC and a port, and placing a picc is really much faster, less painful, and less scary than I thought it would be.
I remember with the PICC that I was surprised about
how fast it all went. I was admitted (paperwork and all at the reception) at 8am, and was already stepping out of the hospital at 10am.
I have a habit of going alone to the hospital for tests or things like that, take enough time so I don't have to hurry. It gives me time to become 'zen', it's some kind of meditation.
If you are really feeling too nervous after tomorrow, just tell the nurses, they will give you something that will make you feel calmer.
The line indeed doesn't run through the heart, that would be scary
