Hickman Line In

The procedure to insert Hickman Line this morning went well. A relatively straightforward procedure but as with all procedures there is always a slight risk. But it was quick and Min Ser is feeling ok. That is until the anesthesia wears off... but he'll be given pain killers to manage any pain.

He was on local anesthetic so he's not too drowsy. He will soon learn how to keep the incision areas clean to avoid any infection. The Hickman Line will be used for all future infusions and drawing of blood.

We have also been to see the radiologist in KL GH for consultation and measurements. All set for Total Body Irradiation (TBI) on Tuesday to Thursday.

Do pray for Sue Min though, as she is unwell, down with diarrhoea since yesterday. Pray she recovers quickly and completely as she rests at home. It will be tiring as a donor and also to lower the risk of any contagions being passed on to Min Ser. May she be in the peak of health in time for the GCSF shots (25/7-28/7) and transplant (29/7). Get well soon Sue Min, take care.

  1. Praying for all of you. Just reading the entire procedure from now onwards reminds me how much we need the hand of God in this situation. Believing that God will intervene and bring the positive results needed.
