Perhaps pulling the PICC

My next doctor's appointment is this Thursday.   My doctor has indicated that we will possibly be pulling my PICC line.  She really doesn't like to leave them in this long and for her patients to take strong antibiotics intravenously for this long.  She prefers 6-8 weeks.  This makes week 15 for me.

At times I have seen great improvement.  But, lately I've been taking more steps backward than forward.  A lot of my pressure and pain in my right side has returned.  My joints have also decided to ache again. There is still much improvement from when we've started, but since I'm leveling off in my improvement, they feel it is time to pull the PICC and move on to Oral Antibiotics.

We know the Lord's hand is in every aspect of our journey with Lyme.   Oral Antibiotics might just be the medicine to get me well!

So, please be praying for my doctor to have wisdom with my medication.  Our prayer is that our Great Physician will guide the physician that He has given me here on this earth.  I'm so thankful that my God never fails!

  1. Aw, Kami I was saddened to hear you feel you are going backward on some days. I pray that the success you've had so far will remain and that the oral antibiotics will be just what you need at this time. Big hugs. xx
