Hurting in so many ways.


What you see here are two different-sized hands on the same person. She could barely hold the pen with her right hand. She is signing a Social Security form.

She is in so much pain, in so many ways. But we continue to be reassured that this kind of thing happens, and people get through it.

Today they took out her PICC line. The damage has been done. Her arm has swelled to about the size of my thigh. There are several clots in it. The big water blister on her foot broke today. The urination is still very painful.
