I may have forgotten to mention that even last week I had to get my PICC Line bandage changed. They finally talked amongst themselves at City of Hope and approved the Newport Beach location to perform some of the maintenance like booster shots and bandage changes.
I still can’t drive, so my partner/chauffeur and my wonderful baby escorted me to the Newport infusion center for City of Hope.
City of Hope has some of the best staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with. They took all the vitals and changed the bandage in under 20 minutes, and we had good conversation the whole time. Honestly I hope we didn’t disturb the mostly sleeping people getting infused all around us.
So, I now have to make it to the Newport Beach infusion center once a week on my off weeks to make sure I don’t develop a life threatening infection in the line that goes directly to my heart. Fair.
