Although Gary didn't like the idea of the mediport. He is already missing it. It is an easy way to give blood, get medication, blood products etc. It is accessed once and then "good to go" until discharge. They are now using an IV for infusion of medication. It is supposed to last about 4 days. Gary's blew out this afternoon in less than 24 hours. How did we know? Blood started coming out, I wont say gushing but enough. Hopefully this new one will last a few days.
We took a walk down the hallway- didn't like having him out in the sea of germs but he needed a little fieldtrip. Another disadvantage of IV is that it beeps alot with little movement.
