Ryleigh’s room has been invaded by her Intravenous Pole! It takes up half of the room. She has been given more medicine to help with her pain but unfortunately her PICC line could not take anymore volume. So, she had to have another IV in her arm. I have lost count but I think we are almost at 20 for IV’s in the last 8 weeks. The medication has her sleeping better although we are not sure whether her pain has improved or not. The pain team said the first 3 days are the worst and we are just finishing day 2.

Chloe and I are leaning on each other as we get the dirty looks and grumblings from Ryleigh. We are both looking forward to seeing her smile again.
