The IV treatment is over!

Last night was the final IV antibiotics treatment. We expected the home health nurse would pick up the supplies, remove the PIC line, and have the medical supply company come by to pick up the pump and IV stand. Evidently, we have to wait on a medical release from the doctor who ordered the IV antibiotics in the hospital. He's not Ron's doctor so I don't know why the order for "10 days of treatment" doesn't automatically expire once the 10 days are up.

Hopefully we'll hear from them shortly and the PIC line can be removed. Ron would like to get out and about (in the scooter, of course) but I won't let him out until the PIC line comes out. I think the risk of infection is too great.
