Central line? I poke me tongue out at your central line.
The risks involved in any procedure give me the willies and of course the anaesthetist needs to describe them all to me just before she goes in. As she goes off I am expecting to come back to, at best, a groggy, unhappy baby - at worst another stint in PICU, or worse.
I went down to discover a bright, happy baby gazing around like nothing had even happened with a beautiful, clean and tidy femoral line in her left leg.
Sailed through with a perfect ten.
Just for something different.
Also, if the lovely person who sent me some food today is reading this, can you leave a comment and let me know who you are? In the haze of surgery I didn't quite catch who it was who left the two yummy meals for me!
